Off the Grid Living
HGTV's "House Hunters" franchise goes to the extreme to tour unconventional properties way off the beaten path. The featured home buyers yearn for a different way of life, far away from the hustle and bustle of city dwelling or the cookie-cutter aspects of suburban situations. Whether it's to pursue a dog-sledding job in Norway, check out a sustainable treehouse community in Costa Rica, or seek more freedom by settling down on an archipelago in British Columbia, these house hunters are casting aside modern conveniences and living off the grid.
