I've renovated condemned buildings for 5 years now and moved in to each one when it was at its worst. Here are some tips I have for living off grid
Don't be ashamed to put up a clothes line.
Wash your clothes in a bathtub like you would squash grapes with your feet for wine. 15 minutes wash and 5 min rinse per batch.
2x12's and cinder blocks make great shelves
A pipe and some rope make great hanging location
Rubbermaid totes can keep clothes dry outside in heavy rain, sterlite cannot; the tubs last longer shaded with a tarp.
I keep 40 days worth of cheap cotton t shirts, thrift store jeans, thrift store sweaters, and store bought boxers, and socks. There is little else in
We do laundry once a month and the whole process takes less than 4 hours.
Renovating condemned buildings sometimes I bathe and redress 3 times a day. Fresh clothes are a better head change than anything you can put in your
pipe and smoke.
