We were interviewed by Ms. Heide Branches a months back and the Outlook Oklahoma Magazine has published the article. It is available online and in copy. Outlook Magazine Article . Life off the grid http://issuu.com/edmondoutlook/docs/outlook_july15/31?e=1468143/13767441 We hope you enjoy the article. Only one mistake in the article was the amount of solar generation. Article says 21070 watts but its unto 2170 watts per hour for the hours of sun we have. Please Like, Comment, Share!! Do what you must. God Bless. Please use my Amazon link to buy at Amazon.

Did you build your own home and did you have any problems with the building codes? I am having trouble finding anyone who has built an earthship in oklahoma, so I don't know if you would have to battle the code enforcement people so's they didn't try to bulldoze my house if I built it.
Bill and Rosa OffGrid (3 years ago)
+y0nd3r We purchased a portable building (storage shed) 12 x 40 foot as our main startup structure. I went to the county and state to see what the building codes were in our area. Once I explained how we were going to live I got the requirements for building our own home. The County we live in has almost no restrictions other than if you hook to county water you must put in a septic system. The rest is very relaxed. We did however wire and insulate according to normal building codes. We have been inspected and passed with flying colors. Just go by the normal laws and communicate with your county and you should not have any problems. We have underground houses within 15 miles of us and they are legal. You might have to approach it as an underground home.
