My name is Alex and myself and my young family sold up last year in the UK and started a new life in Nicaragua. We have gone into partnership with a local family and are currently building our house using bamboo, wood and Adobe construction on their land and we are about to embark on a project to create a learning centre that will be used to teach an aray of skills but our main focus will be on natural building techniques, natural energy technologies, permaculture, natural plant medicine and tinctures. We want to be able to offer this service free of charge to the local community and to do this we are also creating a small ecolodge, accommodation and a restaurant, this in turn will fund the learning centre. We came here to live off the land and live simply. To enable us to push this vision forward we are creating a 'Go fund me' project.
DIY NETWORK - BUILDING OFF THE GRID - CASTING NOTICE
We're looking throughout the United States for folks who will soon start to build an off grid home and plan to complete the build before April of 2019. We cannot consider builds that are already well underway. If you are selected for the show, you will receive compensation of up to $10k upon completion of filming and building. Please note, in order to be considered for the show, the home must primarily be built on rural land where it will ultimately exist (as opposed to being 100% built in a warehouse and then transported to the land)
Please email margaret.halkinATwarmsprings.tv or call me @ 415-828-5828 if interested. I will be happy to answer all questions and fill you in on all the show details. Here is a sneak peek link to the show: http://www.diynetwork.com/shows/building-off-the-grid
We are producing a five part documentary series for one of the largest social networking and content providers in the world. We are shooting all over the world between early June and mid August, documenting persons/couples/families who are currently in the process of building, remodelling, or have completed, an amazing home project. We are looking to capture how people change their environments to bring themselves greater happiness and how they use their living space to mirror their passions, dreams and identity. We are interested in tapping into people’s creativity, ingenuity, engineering prowess, expertise in a particular area and determination to create the perfect living space.
I'm hoping to find someone that is completing a residential build this summer. Whether it be a dome home, a solar home or a silo conversion, it simply needs to be something that grabs the imagination and is very unique!

My name is Sam Davis and I am a casting producer for a production company called Our House Media. We are in the process of casting 8 new episodes for a second season of the DIY Network Show - Building Off the Grid, and we’re looking to follow 8 different builds (one builder per episode) as they build one of their more unique builds for the show. They can be anywhere in the US, so long as the build is off the grid and is able to support itself on its own.
Requirements for the potential build: Must be +1000 square feet; Must be in remote location (no nearby neighbours); Must be off-grid (water,electric & heating); Must have some sort process to access building site. (not essential but would be interesting); Must begin in 2018.
Here is a link to the DIY Network show so you can see what kind of houses we filmed for Season 1: http://watch.diynetwork.com/show/HBLBD/Building-Off-the-Grid-Maine-Lighthouse/

BRIEF SUMMARY OF YOUR STORY:
***PLEASE ATTACH A CURRENT PHOTO OF YOUR FAMILY***
What I would like to do is bring my field experience to the home owner at his site and build for the owner, teach the owner how to build, and work with the owner building his home. I am will to travel and enjoy it. I have built in Rhode Island, Nevada, Arizona, and Florida. If need be I have a construction trailer I could bring to the job site.
I prefer to act as the owner's project manager as this can save the owner a large sum of money. I can draft the plans, get the project though the building permit process, help obtain the subcontractors. I usually design to the customers needs. I have built both commercial and residential. I have references and photos of some of the work I have completed.
