Wild Wonderful Off-Grid

We are a couple who are building our own home from the ground up in the mountains of West Virginia. After living near the city our entire lives we finally decided to sell it all, pack up our 3 kids and live in an RV on our 73 acres while we building our own debt free, off-grid house and learning to live a more self-reliant life.
Our house build is documented entirely on our main channel "Wild Wonderful Off-Grid" and our family life outside the build can be found on our vlog channel "Wild Wonderful After Show"

    Great job! The next step to total energy independence is geothermal for heating and cooling. You could put some loops in the ground to provide heating and cooling from deep within the earth. Or if there is more than adequate water like from a spring, an open loop geothermal system may be possible. Geothermal is far more efficient than radiant electric heat and even standard air conditioning.

    You did a great job blending two different sizes of panels on your ground mount. Looks awesome and you're going to have power up the " Ying Yang" once you install 15 batteries in your battery bank, very necessary for long periods without any sun. I am curious about what measurements you used from the outside of your panels to the rails they are mounted on? I picked up 16 panels that are similar to your 385W panels that I can't find spacing specs, so it would really help me to know what measurements you used.

    Still wondering why you would go for solar for electric heat when you already live surrounded by nature's solar energy source, wood heat. A wood boiler will do a much better job of taking care of your heating needs, especially if you have a thousand or two gallons of heat storage, and burn wood in batches every few days. Build it into the basement of the new part of the house and it will keep the whole house and farm warm.

    I installed the exact same kitchen faucet at the cottage. The sensor was not working after 1 month and the company replaced the whole faucet. Then a few months later the water would turn on by itself; one evening when I was watching poltergeist! 😆 So I have since turned off the sensor option. Love the faucet though. Works well and looks fantastic.

You have to be so proud of yourselves on all the accomplishments that you have achieved. You have such a beautiful family and every one watching can see the love that all of you have for each other and your kiddo's. Absolutely beautiful. As always, I am looking forward to watching all of your future projects. Awesome job on videoing and your narration Erin. So professional.
