Odds ‘n Sods:


I recently received a review copy of the book How To Build The Perfect Off-Grid Home, by Roxyann Spanfelner. This profusely-illustrated 185-page large format paperback was recently released by Paladin Press. I was quite impressed with the author’s level of detail on site selection, foundations, general construction, trenching, pipe and conduit runs, plumbing, AC wiring, appliance selection and load estimation, backup generators, and photovoltaic system installation. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is planning to build a retreat, even if you plan to contract out all of the plumbing and electrical work. – JWR
