In this long-running course Self-sufficient off-grid you learn all basic concepts behind ecological insulation, solar collectors, rainwater harvesting, water filtering, constructed wetlands, compost toilets, solar panels and more. Sustainable alternatives are given for the basic needs warmth, energy, water, toilet - you will learn the how and why.
Especially for (future) tiny house residents, all examples in this course are targeted at regular tiny house dimensions. After this course you've made a huge step forwards in the many many choices that you have to make about warmth, water, showering, toilet etc. This course is also suitable if you want to make your home more sustainable, or if you want to create a new house as sustainable and energy neutral as possible. To set the subjects into a sustainable context, the introduction will discuss some permaculture and climate change principles.
As you said yourself, the information on this subject is not very accessible and it requires a lot of study(time) to grasp all aspects of selfsufficiency. I'm often bored during a course, but this time that was absolutely not the case.
After this course you have saved months of research and you will know enough basic knowledge to choose ecological insulation, buy or install a solar tube system, build or buy a stand-alone solar panel system, know the basic terms of a wet land system, know the how and why of a composting toilet and building one, and to decide how to arrange the water storage and filtering system. You will know the appropriate sustainable basic tools to understand all sorts of off-grid systems and how to evaluate the (non)sense of "new" sustainable technology. Some permaculture concepts will help to do this.
Unique to your approach is that you explain things easy enough to keep the overview. It helps us ask the right questions to ourselves, and keep focus on what is really important.
