A HOMEOWNER has shared the off-grid ranch they built in the middle of Arizona.
She explained they were in the process of building a well for water as well as other energy sources.
Melissa (@desertpeople__) shared the video with her TikTok followers.
The content creator was proud to show off her 50-acre off-grid ranch in the middle of the desert.
Alongside her partner Aaron, she explained they decided to make the bold move to purchase the ranch outside of Tucson, Arizona, and turn it into their dream home.
Over the winter, they couldn’t make many renovations due to the intense weather but in the spring, the couple began their large-scale project.
Melissa showed off the new grey floors they renovated inside of their home with an “earthy” structure in mind.
For water, the couple relied on a well that supplied the necessity to them in the middle of the desert.
For energy in their off-grid home, she explained that they built a solar system to generate their own power.
“Slow but steady progress out here… Aar has been working on building out our solar system the last couple of days,” she said.
“Very much enjoying getting to know the land itself, witnessing the blooms, colors, sounds, and creatures all around. What a magical grid point.”
The best part of their decision to go off-grid, Melissa said, was the incredible views they get to see every day: “And man oh man, the star watching out here is stellar.”
People shared their thoughts on their huge life decision: “Soo happy for you! Maybe we should come out and build a dome when you’re ready!” said one commenter.
“Awesome. I know someone who’s doing this in Buckeye,” said another.
