These are the top off-the-grid prefab homes that will help you get the most energy-efficient and self-sustaining home possible.
Off-the-grid means that you’re unplugged from the energy grid. You’re out in the wild or wherever you are on your own. This means staying in a home with all the amenities you need — electricity, power, and more.
That’s the most affordable option in the long run — a home that’s self-sustaining. If you’re looking for just that, then we’ve got the list for you.
Here’s a list of manufacturers that have perfected their off-the-grid tiny homes, cabins, and pods.
