When I made the decision to tranathletic activity off the grid last year, I knew that I was going to deal with a major lifestyle change.
I consistently enjoyed handling our yearly chores the old-fashioned way, though I still had our mornings when I would’ve enjoyed to have the new conveniences around.
I remember getting pretty sick with the flu last winter, too – knowing that I had to go outside as well as break our own wood for the fireplace was almost too much to bear! With that, I decided that I would get power attached to our house, along with running water. After all, I enjoyed living outside of the city more than anything else. I was especially excited to have these new appliances around now, as I entirely needed them to make life a bit easier for me to manage. The most useful new appliance was legitimately the heating & air conditioning systems! Through the rest of this past winter, I was able to rely on our new central heating system. It’s powered using a wood pellet stove, so I’m still living with appliances that use old-fashioned principles. As for air conditioning system, I have a straight-forward window mounted air conditioning system component in our kitchen, then my lodge is pretty small, so I don’t need anything too powerful to cool down the lodge duringboilingsummer time mornings; Besides, the climate stays fairly cool through most of the year anyway! That’s what I love so much about the area – the air quality is consistently charming since I’m far from the pollution of the city. In turn, that means the air quality at our lodge is usually just as good.
