Florida Makes Off-Grid Living Illegal – Mandates All Homes Must Be Connected To An Electricity Grid Robin Speronis lives off the grid in Florida, completely independent of the city’s water and electric system. A few weeks ago, officials ruled her off-grid home illegal. Officials cited the International Property Maintenance Code, which mandates that homes be connected to an electricity grid and a running water source. That’s like saying our dependency on corporations isn’t even a choice.

We're going to have a brief look at my model of Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California. Calm yourself. I know it's exciting but get a grip.
