Hi Kuldebar,

It looks like you know an awful lot about off grid living and it was great reading your post above!

I noticed you said there are a lot of places where there aren’t building codes etc. I’m interested in learning more about this because I’ve been looking at converting a shipping container into a nice eco dwelling in the wilderness, but I’ve been looking over at Container Home Plans and they mentioned about the difficulties of getting building approval in built up areas etc…

Do you know any other good places to learn a little bit more about building regs and approval?
