Plot Synopsis

BUILDING OFF THE GRID is a series of one-hour specials that follow builders and DIYers as they construct homes off the grid in remote regions of the United States. Each 60-minute program features different builders, including: Chris and Catelyn Williams, who build the home of their dreams -- a 30-foot tall, 700 square-foot, off-grid yurt in Montana, complete with a breathtaking view of the mountains; Alaskan builder Jeff Ward and his son Bryce, the mayor of the North Pole, who combine their talents to create an off-the-grid cabin not too far from Santa's house; the Perrins brothers, who build an extremely remote log hunting cabin in the heart of the Alaskan Range, using archaic tools, materials, and pioneering techniques throughout; and many more builders.
On Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT, DIY Network premiered "Underground Living," a new one-hour BUILDING OFF THE GRID special. Specialty builders Jon and Amanda D'Aleo design and build "earth-sheltered" homes for clients in southern Colorado, but they weren't expecting a project this far off the grid. They'll have to work overtime to get a house constructed and buried before the Colorado winter hits.
