Chris Strathy and Building an Affordable Off-Grid Hot Tub

Chris Strathy comes back to Ethan’s podcast to discuss building an affordable off-grid Hot Tub among other things. Such as an underground hobbit house, rehabbing an old log cabin and much more.

Chris enjoys the challenges of being off-grid and has a 15 area old tobacco farmland to put his experiments into practice. He has built a unique home office on stilts, an outdoor kitchen and several water catchment systems to make his off-grid farm uniquely his.
