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.
