AN off-grid lifestyle might not be for everybody but it doesn’t mean you can’t stay warm in the winter.
One adventurous homeowner living in the wilderness heats her two-story home without any electricity.
“Let me show you my off-grid heating system,” said Gubba (@gubbahomestead).
Making her whole house warm and cozy just takes some muscle – but she was up for the wood chopping challenge.
“All I have to do is chop some wood like a boss, this keeps me fit, it’s my exercise for the day,” she explained.
That fitness routine included hauling the wood down the stairs where her heating system was located.

Gubba put the chopped pieces of wood into the stove and explained how this allowed her whole home to stay warm – no electricity needed.
“It’s so cool, there’s so much heat coming from my wood stove,” said the sustainable living resident.
A roaring fire could be seen raging inside that she explained will keep going throughout the day.
She also showed her heat induced fans that work to circulate the heat – they also go over to her HVAC.

“This fan does require electricity. I only have it run if I really want it hot,” she explained.
The independent woman had certainly gained some fans.
“Like a boss – also love your stairs! How cool,” said one impressed follower.
“Haha thank you!” she replied.
This boss lady – who didn’t have any energy bills – couldn’t stop gushing about her efficient – and easy – off-grid heating system.
“I absolutely love it, it keeps me warm and cozy during the winter. I love my wood stove.”
One viewer shared his own wonderful wood experience.
“Wood is the best. I heat water with mine which I circulate through the sand under my floor,” he said.
Yet another viewer had a question for her: “How do you power your lights and appliances?”
“Electric and gas,” she answered.
