Shearwater Cove – An Off Grid Yurt Village in Alaska

The folks at Tiny Home Tours recently visited Jason & Charity at Shearwater Cove, who’ve built an off-grid yurt village in Alaska.

They found the land in the dead of winter and began building in 2015. Building on the land was tough. All the building materials in by boat and they used the boat dock as their initial work platform. The first step was to build decks, stairs, and bridges up and across the boulders, creeks, and rough terrain. This extensive decking provided easy access to the yurt platforms.

Today you can visit Shearwater Cove’s oceanfront yurt rentals and access to kayak adventures in Resurrection Bay and Fox Island. Shearwater Cove is just 10 miles from Seward Alaska but is only accessible by boat.

So if you feel like a tiny living adventure in Alaska consider checking out Shearwater Cove.

Simply Living – Build It for $10,000-$12,000 in Materials

What we came up with is a 20 foot house that can be fully completed for only $10,000-12,000 with all new materials even less with reclaimed materials… For a limited time, we are offering the plan package PDF download for whatever amount of money you decide and what you think they are worth. And we are going to donate 100% of the proceeds to charity, specifically I Care Atlanta which is a nonprofit devoted to ending homelessness.” – Tiny Home Builders
