The Do It Yourself World

Welcome to The Do It Yourself  World


The Do It Yourself World is a collection of DIY projects in alternate energy, natural foods and off grid living. We have projects ranging from radiant energy, to DIY lighting and solar panels, to foraging for wild edibles. Our experiments and projects are leading to a fully off grid lifestyle. We are working with DIY hyrdogen boosters for autos, solar panels and homemade windmills. These pages are constantly expanding with new projects and discoveries, so check back often.

Follow along with me on my path to self sufficiency with daily videos on Youtube. I am currently living on an 18 acre homestead with my beautiful wife Melanie and daughter Michelle. We are about 95 percent off the grid and working towards 100 percent. We are working towards self sufficiency and a fully off grid lifestyle. Nearly daily video updates of our struggles, trials and experiences.
