Where to Start ?

Published by admin on 16-Feb-2017 12:31 (222 reads)

Building off grid can mean and entail many different things including , budget? , time frame you have in mind to build? ,where to start ? , materials to be used? , design ideas? and more .

Our advise is to, think long term(10 years) and act short term(quick) and spend to suit that thinking.

I have listed below a few things and the order that I tend to asses these things in before I would consider starting any off grid project .

I understand everything touched on here will depend considerably on how much money you have or are prepared to spend and how quick you want your setup to get done.. So hey , you may have to use your imagination a tad :- )

* Budget ?
Budget is a thing that as with most items on my list, you will need to asses yourself obviously .
You should I feel , work out a couple of things first before setting a budget . Work out what suits your thinking first and foremost.
Do you intend to spend a lump sum initially ? or do you want to spend small amounts as you go ?
If you decide what limit over all that you intend to spend , then you can choose either to spend it all in one hit or over time. Either way , your total spend can then be looked at to sort out what your budget can do and how far you will get.

The beauty of pre thinking the end budget amount first, is that it gives you an idea of what you should do now and how far your decisions perhaps should go financially? ..

An example : If you have decided prior to spend a total of lets say $3000-$5000 on your solar ( DIY) ? then you should choose to not waste time and money on a $500 initial setup to get you going . I would spend that pre set budget as soon as you had it and achieve the level of power that you have chosen ..... One spend , no build up wasted spending on short term answers to needs and then you have ticked off one item, a major one at that, on the head , done ! All the power you have planned to use and or need.




to be continued ......

cheers
Steve

One of my favourite Off Grid things I like to do is to create my own lotions and potions.

I have been playing around with creating natural lotions and potions for about 40 years. We use them to help keep us healthy, and without the need to buy products which contain a lot of nasty unnatural chemicals.

I have been asked many times why don't I sell my products? Well now I do. :)

My daughter, Neen, a beautiful woman, both inside and out, and now a mother of 4 delightful children herself, is now following in my footsteps. Together we are now offering our natural homemade products for other people to share their benefits.

We are not a large company obviously and all our products are made by hand in our own homes and we use only the best ingredients. We create with organic, raw and natural stuff. We do not mass produce and the products may change as to whatever we have available at any given time. You can ask us to make something special for you if you like.

We are also Doterra Wellness Advocates and not only use their oils to help us in our daily lives, but we include them in our products. If you would like to know how to buy your Doterra Essential Oils at wholesale prices, please talk to us.

We welcome you to our new venture and hope that you find something that you would like to try.

Cheers
Kerri-Ann and Neen
