Building Off the Grid

This highly-rated show on the DIY Network follows a group of builders who specialize in constructing homes in remote areas with challenging terrain.

Tiny House, Big Living

Given the chaotic world that we’re living in, the simplicity of tiny house living is more appealing than ever, and this show on HGTV teaches you exactly how to do it. Each episode follows families who are transitioning to tiny houses and all of the triumphs and tribulations that come with it. Some couples choose to build the houses themselves, while others hire expert builders to do the job, resulting in a wide range of experiences and aesthetics. The show is no longer airing, but you can check out full episodes of its eight seasons on HGTV.

Building Alaska

There’s building off the grid, and then there’s building off the grid in one of the most remote locales in the world. Building Alaska follows an eclectic cast of characters who are seeking to construct one-of-a-kind cabins, lodges, and other retreats in the Alaska wilderness. Without roads and building supply centers, these builders have to use creativity, innovation, and courage to get the job done. The show wrapped its 11th season in March, and you can catch up on all the episodes on the DIY Network.
