Jeff and Rose and their 5 girls (ages 10, 12, 14, 15, 17) have been living off grid on their northern Canadian homestead for 8 years.

They started with a bare 20 acres, without even road access, and have since built their house, shop and all sorts of homestead type of infrastructure; animal pens, barns, guest house, rain water collection, gravity fed water storage, composting toilets, solar system etc.

Their fishing, hunting, prospecting and other off grid adventures are all documented on the Gridlessness youtube page –

In this interview Jeff and Rose share how they built a debt free life homesteading off grid with their family in the Canadian Wilderness.
