How to find Remote Off Grid land for Homesteading

  görünümler 515,511



Yıl önce

Living on a beautiful piece of remote wilderness land is a dream for milions of people. But how do you make that happen? How do you find land to build your tiny house on, or your off-grid cabin? What is that process like and what are some of the most important things to consider when making that major life move to remote land. Lets talk about that right now.

Quite a long time ago I looked at a remote farmstead site in N. Wisconsin. I thought it was everything I would ever want. I didn't pull the trigger, I waited until it rained. When I went back it was under two feet of water with Mallards swimming around. I was shocked and very disappointed, but relieved at the same time. This was a huge lesson learned. Thanks Brooke and Dave! 🌲🌷🌲

We had the same thing happen is SW Wisconsin. 50 beautiful acres on the Bad Axe River that we passed on. We bought up on the ridge instead, and the next two years were "100 year floods". Turns out that area floods to some extent every year, but those two years right after we passed on it took out everything. Fences, buildings, everything gone.

my father bought a cottage and bay on a lake in the fall time, in the spring we went fishing, there was only 1.5 feet deep water though out the lake, the rest of the depth was at least 6 feet of mud deep. We could not swim any where on the lake.

Brooke and Dave, the wife and I have been enjoying both of your channels for several years now and this episode really struck home. We are in the Northern lower and love to camp during the summer months, the rustic state forest campgrounds are not cutting it anymore, big fifth wheel rigs, generators and satellite dishes. You know what I'm talking about, so we thought about finding a piece of remote property we could establish a summer camp on. I have used Google maps and Google earth to find off road trails but with this acre view program you talked about I think i will be able to locate a piece of land to fit our needs. Thank you both so much for the hours of enjoyment and the inspiration. Mike & Lori

Dave, thank you for your awesome videos! You and Brooke do a wonderful job explaining realities of remote living. It seems like some of your critics confuse ‘remote’ with ‘primitive’. Those are not the same thing at all. My wife and I are selling our home in the Grand Rapids area and are looking for something fairly remote and probably still in Michigan. I do need some type of Internet access, as I already earn my income online. We also plan on having creature comforts such as a well and septic tank, and indoor plumbing. Our camper is good down to 0 degrees - at least when the propane furnace works - but we are planning to have at least a small cottage, maybe not much larger than your cabin. We looked at one property last winter where we trekked up a hill only to find there was a 5G antenna right next to the property line. Not sure I want to be that close to a tower. Years ago, I took classes in passive solar system design, and it will be nice to apply that education. My questions are: - How do we determine the ground water level of an area? Is there an app for that? - How do we find locations where we are away from zoning areas, so that we can be flexible in what/how we build? I’ve seen that indicator right in listings, but it would be nice to know what general areas are like that as a whole. - it is possible that we can do without the camper to get deeper into the wilderness, but then we definitely need a place to live quickly - perhaps a wall tent like you guys lived in. Thanks for being the inspiration that you are! May God continue to bless you and your family, and that you continue to see that bright side even when crap happens, like a deer landing on your Escort in Canada! Be radical!

Thank you for this video. I made a huge mistake on 10 acres. Logging trucks came in all around me. I was over run by snakes and critters. I had to leave and land is basically worthless. So now after that financial disaster I am looking again but not this state. I appreciate your advice.Love both your channels!❤️❤️

Another helpful hint! If you don't want to pay for acrevalue, MANY counties now have their tax assessor maps online to view for free. It is essentially the same thing that acrevalue does, but you don't have to pay for the owner's name and address. I'm currently using this to find some land for our future homestead! Great video, as always!

Excellent points raised, exact hurdles we've considered about having remote land. Unless one wins the lottery or has huge retirement savings, then gotta consider having enough online/independent income like you both pointed out. At least to pay the annual land taxes & any small monthly bills left over after converting to as off grid as possible/eliminating as many bills possible like water electric & gas heat etc, so that's what I'm trying to figure out. I'm not sure if there is anywhere to escape zoning/permit inspection restrictions that I'm tired of seeing humanity suffer through if they have remote land it should be to each his own if they cause no intentional harm to anyone or the land. I'd like to build whatever I want on land if I ever finally get some & allow other ppl who cant get the land themselves the chance to live, build, garden and create art free & wild on some of it that isnt used for growing etc. So I'm sure it would have it be remote to be where we could all mind our business in peace as free spirits exercising our birthrights w/o permits for every right that should come natural. Glad you guys went at the right time & are so right about thoroughly checking out in person what may be cat-fished realtor listings as they tend to go beyond embellishing at times and checking how the land is spring/winter. I never saw your tv show since I watch very little programming the past several years now, but when I do I try to make sure its something worth it, which your content surely is : ) Much success to you two Beautiful souls!

You guys are so awesome! I love listening to your advice and watching you fulfill your dreams. I have followed a much different path in life, but I love contemplating this remote way of life. I have a property where I can retreat, and you give me ideas for retirement and even tips for ways to use my place even now. I've told my relatives about your channel, and now they love it too!

You guys are really the best! You put in the time, researched the issue, identified solutions, and now you're sharing it with us. The. Best! I'm actually looking to retire in the West (Wyoming or thereabouts) and the first thing I looked at was water. In Michigan, you've probably got a number of options with surface or near-surface water. Out West, it's probably going to be access to an aquifer. And the issue with water nowadays is not just accessibility, but potential contamination. For example, Wyoming has a significant fossil industry, both coal and gas. Do nearby mines or gas wells impact the water supply? Something to think about, because it can turn your dream home with your own well into something that's a little more challenging. Anyway, thanks so much for sharing, your videos are so incredibly useful for those of us interested in maybe putting some distance between ourselves and modern civilization.

One of the most interesting videos I've seen on YT yet. We have an off grid cabin at 8300 ft here in AZ. We built the first one in 1986, then bought two acres near that cabin and built our current "cabin- house" We catch rain water and have solar power, it's only one hour from our main home and is usually only accessible by snowmobile in winter, it gives us the best of both worlds. Love your videos.

My wife and I moved to Alaska in August 2021 from Florida. I eagerly soak up every bit of knowledge you have to offer. We are in a dry cabin, but not off grid yet. Have a very Happy New Year ahead. We look forward to maybe sharing a meal together someday.

You guys are slowly becoming my guides. I've been looking for simple land for cheap to build something like that black-stained cabin you built. Super inspirational!

A couple things I've learned in my search is to make sure it has deeded access or the way to access it that won't become invalid due to things outside of your control like zoning, or a neighbor has just been allowing access through their property and now a new owner won't allow it. Another thing I stumbled across was some sites were using an interactive map that had all the known wells on it with depth and gph when drilled. My biggest fear has been finding land I love and finally pulling the trigger then spending $30 plus a foot to not hit water. I found a property I liked that stated it had a well on it, but it wasn't showing up on the interactive map so I asked the realtor to find more info on it and they find out it was an old broken down well from god knows when.

Very good points about access. My family owned a semi-remote house up in the mountain areas in my country. Had a big yard that ended up with a river, the other bank of which was the beginning of a 4000 ft mountain. It was a truly magical place, but the road to it was collapsing over time and at one point it became completely inaccessible to anything other than by foot, and that required an enormous amount of effort as well due to the elevation. Wanting to live remote is one of the main reasons I got into programming as well. One day, I hope I get to live on a remote piece of land like this. Cheers for the awesome video!

@Jen N it was beautiful, seeing the mountain up close from the yard. But it was far enough to go by foot to make my parents sell the property when I was 10 or so. Wish they hadn't done it but oh well.

I have sent your vid to my daughter and son in-law who are gearing up to resettle up north on a piece of property we will co-invest in with them. We are too old to go home-steading, but we can sure support them in their efforts and get a bit of space for recreational cabin as well,. This is easily the best video on what to consider as you prepare to buy. We are in that process now. God bless you both and thank you! And....congratulations on buying your land!

Congratulations guys on your new place! Sounds like a cool adventure. You should become land scouts for people looking on the side. I know I’m not crazy, the 1000’s of hours I have spent online looking the way you mentioned at maps. One thing I like to do is looking for the hi tense lines too, not something I want. Getting to the places is the issue for me now, I know what I like, just would have to wait till I can explore more than 1-2 days from home at a time. I’ve been researching for years different areas, looking at all the angles, weather, sunshine, road maintenance, hazards, amenities, signs that warn of “road floods,” the people/culture of living there, the poverty level (lots of trailers/pits/junk heaps/meth nearby...hope not), or a jail nearby? So much to consider, aside from water, power, building codes, etc. Have you both ever thought of making a glamping site in up with tents? I’d visit it, and stay if you did. I’m hoping to make it to UP next chance I get during a summer and take a swim in chilly Lake Superior, hike the Lakeshore trail, go explore, enjoy some peace and quiet, etc. I’m gearing up for that change to living remote, for awhile. Great video thanks!

Hey Dave and Brooke, We live up next to the border in the Arrowhead and I have worked remotely for 10 years. First satellite then we got fiber optic. either way worked. One just a little more reliable. We found our place by word of mouth. You have great experience and my wife and I can't wait until you two get started. The first start of a journey begins with the first step. Take care!

Thank you for sharing the upsides and downsides of living remote. If I was in a different stage of my life I definitely would try this. People are seeking a simpler way of life. The world has changed and become way to stressful for many people. As a senior citizen we need closer access to health care. However, we are simplifying the way we live and we have never been happier. Thank you for allowing this senior to live a bit more vicariously with you and your beautiful wife.

Loved your story!! We did ten years ago something very similar in Nova Scotia. Saw the 100 acre property on a realtor site, January 2nd. Next day it was a day with a big snow blizzard. We still drove the 100 miles (and back) to inspect it. Because of the weather, the selling realtor (a friend) even didn't dare to come along. This acreage had not just 2000 feet of river frontage, but 2000 meters!! We stumbled through the snow with our hiking poles (should have brought our snow shoes) to take a look. And closed the deal a week later. And yes, GPS is very important.

That’s a great piece of advice. Don’t wait and don’t hesitate when you find something you love. I got so lucky with my home in Vegas. It was on the market about a month before I found it. Two different people already tried buying it before me, but they’re financing fell through. The same day I saw the house, I put in an offer. It was my dream home. It’s a big and beautiful house, and I got a killer deal (this was back in 2010 with the housing market crash). Even with the closing costs and upgrades I’ve done, I’m looking at a six figure profit when I sell. I won’t say exactly how much, but it’s a lot. However, I’m tired of Vegas and have always wanted to live in the woods. I’m hoping to fulfill that dream in a year or two.This was a great video and had great information. Dave, congratulations on the new land and God bless you and yours! Stay safe and healthy my friend!

Congratulations on the new purchase! All of the points you spoke about were spot on. I’m currently looking for property in northern Michigan and have learned a few the hard way. Here are a couple you might want to mention. 1. Make sure there’s “deeded” access to the property, not land locked. 2. Make sure the local ordinances allow what you want to do with the property. Some local places have put in “off grid” restrictions. 3. A good app to use while scouting your possible properties is OnXhunt. It’s like acre value but more easily used mobile. 4. Use local DNR website to scout what’s near your property. Your possible property might be right on the edge of a very popular ORV/ATV trail/trailhead. For some this might be great, some might not want things busy in the summer/winter etc. I’m just putting this info here to hopefully help the next person if I can. I think your channels are great and I look forward to more.

Excellent video and very informative! It’s great the two of you found a new piece of property to call home. I’m curious though, what happened to building on the recent property that Brooke found? You know the one that you had the wall tent at, put the Hand well in and build the outhouse. Did you decide not to build your new home there?

Hi guys! I'm new to your channel and I luv luv luv it! I've been really impressed with your videos so far, I especially like how you narrate them...whenever you’re building something you give such great advice and also letting folks know it's okay if this is the first time you are building something etc because it makes newbies such as myself feel confident that yes, I can try and if I fail that's okay just keep that! Keep up the awesome work and have a great holiday season! 😊✌️🏻❤️

Gratitude & grand risings Brooke & Dave. I have just discovered your channel yesterday and i cannot get enough of it!! It resonates with me deeply and im sure many on here feel the same. This is something i have held dear for a long time now and as a young man of 35, to have a place of my own and in harmony with nature. I am based in Glasgow, Scotland. The story Dave shared about the man he seen at the dump in Alaska, incredible and i love and share that mindset. Is the Acre Value website specific to the US or North America? I would be incredibly grateful if you guys or anyone in the comments could enlighten me to a website or app applicable here in Scotland or the UK. The best youtube channel, bar none for real skills, first hand experience & knowledge. Thank you from my heart & soul.

Such good info! You have saved some folks heartache and money. Here in the desert southwest there is remote properties at fairly reasonable prices. Access to water is always the overriding issue here. People think they will just drill a well but they don’t think it through. At $25+ per cased foot it adds up and you may still have a dry hole at 600-800+ ft deep. I have heard so many people say that they had remote property and hoped to move there but they couldn’t find water.

I love your channels and subscribe to both of them. You talk a lot about using solar energy for your off-grid power, and I was wondering if you have ever considered using your creek/river as a power source, since it runs year-round? Building a paddle wheel would give you another way to make and store power. It's just a thought.

As always, an excellent presentation from an intelligent hard working couple. We have one slightly negative comment/question as follows: You admit your Alaskan property was for all intents and purposes inaccessible during certain times (i.e. - heavy pain periods). However, it appears you bought your Northern U.P. Michigan Property PRIOR to knowing if said property accessibility was similar or worse than your Alaskan property situation. That unlike you, my wife and I are extremely close to retirement and being from Michigan originally, we were very interested in remote property such as the piece you purchased. However, being much older than you both, we realize that our advancing age will definitely be a factor in how we physically negotiate hard therians on a regular basis (even with good eating habits and regular exercise). Our only thought, is that you have decided that a four wheeler would take the place of your snow mobile come summer. However, knowing retirement income levels could be easily threatened in the future by the self serving powers to be, we wonder if we would be able to properly maintain the motorized equipment necessary for us to live comfortably and safely ( life saving vehicles that need expert techs especially when we physically age). That being frugal / practical people as you both are, we hope you understand,. Please refer back to your old vehicle ages as well as the unexpected trouble with the deer encounter in Canada. Please recall, that you were much younger and fortunately you encountered wonderful people to help you through the unexpected potentially catrosphic event (We suspect you encountered providential assistance at the time????). Respectfully Sent

One thing about access in the U.P.: if you need to cross someone else's property to get to yours, you probably need to look into getting an easement from that property owner. Those lumber roads might one day have a gate on them or a pile of trees for that matter. I'm sure you guys have that taken care of, but it might not hurt to mention it in the future. Maybe this is just a realtor scare tactic, but having "legal" access (and to not be trespassing ) to get to your property is one less thing to worry about. Great video! I had to come back and watch it a second time.

Congratulations on your new homestead property! With a flowing river you shouldn't get eaten by flying bugs during the summer, hopefully. This property looks beautiful and you both look so happy to have found it. I'm excited for you and excited to see the videos of your future projects there. Trent and Allie You Tubers just got a star link set up. You may want to check them out and see how it's working for them. Just a darling darling couple. God bless you and stay happy! She gone. : )

Great videos and love your channel! Congratulations on your new land! Just curious because i don’t think I remember hearing this but how many acres did you buy and what was the cost??! Two very important things when buying land!! What do you recommend for a price range with remote land? Thanks!

Thank you!! You two have so much knowledge. Question: why have you moved so many times? Just curious. Sounds like you've lived in multiple locations.

Thanks for this message, Dave & Brooke! I'm still saving for my land, but it won't be easy. I'm a truck driver/bus driver by trade, so I shouldn't have much problem finding work where I'm searching.

I built solar backup for our main home last year. If I can do it, anyone can. It will come in handy with our new will be our only source of power. You guys are an inspiration.

Gracias amigos. Thanks for sharing precious information. I've been watching your videos hoping to learn for future plans and adventures but in a totally opposite setting. I want to build my future off grid homestead in a rainforest in the Caribbean. You are welcome to share any advise you think may help. Also, I like to say I am very proud to see you do not hide your faith and always keep a very nice, positive attitude. I love seen you two working together as a couple, caring and supporting each other. You make a good example of what a marriage should be. And last but not least I want your wife to know I love her outfit and her Native American hair style, hat and booths. ♥ Hugs from Puerto Rico!

I was invited to the Starlink beta a few months ago but didn't purchase it because it is geo locked currently meaning you can only use it where you first set it up (for now) and I would have needed it for travel. I'm a software developer and plan on moving somewhere somewhat remote in a few years. Love your videos!

Came across your video's of building your cabin. Very nice, enjoyed them. Very well done. Then saw this one. Thanks, very informative and straightforward with no B.S. Being several years retired, still have a dream of something similar. One of a few things on my bucket list. Love the outdoors with some solitude.

CONGRATULATIONS on becoming new property owners!!! Thank you so much for all the information that you and your wife put out in your videos. I'm an avid follower and have even lived in Michigan (East Side of Detroit where the crack houses and pitbulls reside LOL). I'm not a fan of winter because of my Hawaiian DNA, however I do love idea of owning remote property that is away from heavy populated areas. i don't think I'll ever buy land in Michigan however having a piece of my own land that is far and away from heavily populated areas is something that I am thinking about. Keep staying Radical! Alex Rubio Virginia Beach, Virginia
