Our accommodations are rustic but clean and green.  Sun-heated showers, outhouses (no indoor toilet).   We are building more guest facilities this year.  We live in a high altitude valley surrounded by mountains, so weather can be extremely cold or windy.

Living off-grid is austere and challenging. There are different possibilities for accommodation, depending on the season and availability.  The cabins we have are communal spaces, available for short term visits.  Work exchange people generally stay in trailers, tents or equivalent.  Ideally you bring your own RV or tiny house.

People need to spend time here as a guest and/or worker before making long term living decisions.
