Hi folks, my name is LaMar and I am a long time off grid homesteader.  I built the cabin you see in the picture by myself with all new materials (except for recycled doors and windows) for under $2000. I have written an Ebook called 'Off the Grid' that includes detailed plans for the cabin plus eighteen other very useful solar homestead projects and directions for buying cheap land, installing solar and wind power, drilling your own water well, building a solar composting toilet and much much more...

The plans are 355 pages long and include detailed pictures, drawings, material and cost list.

The Ebook is printable with many full color pictures.


I live in this cabin year round and it is great for a single person, couple or small family. The cabin is approximately 400 square feet. There is a living area, dining area, full bathroom, and kitchen on the main floor and large bedroom and office in the loft.

This cabin would be great for a single person, couple, or small family and could be used as a recreation cabin, guest house, hunting cabin, or starter home.

I also included plans for building a solar, wind and generator powers system similar to the one in the picture for under $1000. This system will run your lights, TV, radio, CD player, 12 volt water pump, microwave, washing machine etc.

I have sold thousands of these books at $24.95 through my own website but I am now making them available through ebay as an Ebook for anyone interested in building a self-sufficient homestead.

Here are a few customer reviews:

LaMar, I received your Simple Solar Homesteading book today, and it is FANTASTIC!!! Very well done, and very easy to follow! I am really looking forward to building my own cabin in the future!

"I just received LaMar's book about simple solar homesteading. The whole book contains finite directions for building a cabin for under $2,000, a solar system for under $1000, a solar water heater for under $50 ,a solar composting toilet, and even a garden cart, plus lots of other info about where to go to get more stuff. It's the best $ I've ever spent. Just the how-to photos are worth so much. I printed the book off, bound it, and stayed up most of the night devouring it--now I can't wrench it out of my son's hands. I've always said if you know how to build shelter and grow food, it takes most of the fear out of life. If you haven't ordered this book, do it NOW! Thanks, LaMar, for putting this together". Rebecca at Coyote Moon Homestead in W KY

Simple Solar Homesteading II

"Lamar has empowered the reader, the seeker, the fed-up, those on very limited income, enabled them to take control of their life. Freeing them from the servitude of a system; that enslaves under 15-20 even 30 years of indenture, the mortgage company. A system that cares not for the Spiritual welfare of its captives, but only the profit it can extract from it’s sufferers. I found this book, to contain a wealth of information. All of it in a format that is usable, by anyone with the most marginal construction skills. Providing plans for more than just a cabin, he touches upon many more of the needed systems, which go along with homesteading. It will become a valuable tool for many, profound in its straight forward simplicity." Rock Trant
