Ep. 33 | Buying an Abandoned Jack Rabbit Cabin in Joshua Tree, CA | Part 2

Welcome to episode two of the three part series - Buying an Abandoned Cabin in Joshua Tree, CA.

This Episode covers the first couple months on the property - from the moment we took the keys, to the moment we realized we may have made a terrible investment. There are way too many stories to pack into a 30 minute show, but this covers the highlights.

We really wanted to deliver a sense of what the days were like and how we approached the project as a family living off the grid. Over the first few months the only amenity was running water through a hose, which was a godsend, but everything else was through the van - solar power, compost toilet and a chilly solar shower.

However, with each day the project progressed on all fronts - landscaping, exterior, interior, shower house, outhouse, solar power, etc… Stay tuned for the final episode of this series and check out @AfueraVidaCasita to learn more of the project.
