A business born from the COVID-19 lockdown, Live Off Grid is about creating spaces where people can disconnect from their normal routines and discover the wider world. Specifically designed living quarters strip away the need and desire for modern distractions. The world is much bigger than what we see on our screens, but you have to walk a path of self-discovery to see it for yourself.
Take a moment to reflect on how your mental health has been in the last few months. The media has been in complete disarray, and we’re being bombarded with mixed messages on how to take care of ourselves and how to take care of others. In truth, the answer is to ignore the media altogether.
Nothing is more important than your own wellbeing. If you look after yourself, you’ll find the strength to help those around you as well. Self-love and taking a step back from the hustle and bustle we’re accustomed to is the key. Once you’re in a new, calmer environment, your entire perspective changes and it becomes clear what your priorities should be.
Live Off Grid works in your best interests, but we also care deeply about improving your wellbeing in the most eco-friendly way possible. We take reconditioned shipping containers and give them a new lease of life, taking the concept of upcycling to a completely different level. Natural and sustainable materials in muted colour tones complement the space perfectly, and plenty of windows allow natural light to flood in.
There’s a misconception that living off grid is boring. This simply isn’t true. Over-reliance on mental stimulation makes us believe we have to be doing something all the time. When you master the art of doing nothing, you understand what real happiness is. Taking time out for yourself in a rural environment lets you reflect on how much time is wasted in front of a screen. You don’t need technology to stimulate your mind when you have a beautiful view on your doorstep.
Live Off Grid is setting itself apart by making disconnection accessible to everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you’re relaxing in one of our reconditioned shipping containers from your back garden or from a field in Northumberland, the effect of switching your mind off and taking in nature is still the same.
The future is bright. Our units can be used as unique, extra office space. They create safe havens for people to live without having to pay monumental rental or mortgage fees. Holiday parks can invest in our units, offering something different to guests at a more affordable price.
In time, Live Off Grid will have sites across the UK. Our vision of making disconnection easily accessible to everyone means we have to lead the charge. We will create the spaces people need. We will help you Disconnect & Discover.
