Off-grid living doesn’t mean cold to death

My mother has been saying she wants to transport off the grid for years now.

She has talked of the little lodge she wants on a plot of land where she can raise chickens plus have a garden.

She has been talking about it for as long as I can remember. I never thought she would entirely do it. Well she is doing it now. She bought a little spot up in the mountains. She is 2 hours away from just about somewhere. The lodge has been built plus she is just getting the creature comforts installed. I was sad that my mother wouldn’t be able to stay hot enough out there living on her own with only solar powered lights. She said she was getting a wood burning stove installed but that didn’t seem enough. That is why I was ecstatic when I l earned that she was also getting a propane gas furnace installed. The lodge is really small so she does not need a sizable gas furnace. The heating provider that is installing both the stove plus the gas furnace helped her occasion out a propane gas furnace that is right for her. Apparently, I also have the heating corporation to thank for talking her into getting a hourary heat source. They explained that living alone, in the middle of nowhere, is really dangerous without respected heating. I couldn’t agree more. My Dad complained a bit about the extra costs although I bet she is ecstatic about it when Wintertide comes. I suppose I will rest easier knowing she is nice plus hot in her new home.
