exploring off grid solutions for a sustainable lifestyle in cold climates

Off Grid Solutions for Cold Climates

During the last few years we have developed plans to leave our crowded country and move somewhere with more space where we are able to enjoy the outdoors. Our dream is to move to Sweden and to build our own house and become as self-sufficient as we can. Depending on the exact location, Sweden can get quite cold and snowy and the winters last very long.

As we couldn’t find a whole lot of information about sustainable building and living in colder climates, we decided to document our search so the information becomes available to everyone. This website is therefore a living document and it will grow as we continue to pursue our dreams.
