ICF Mountain Homestead: How We Save Money on Wiring and Electrical Work


Electrical rough in continues as we pull wire, make up the electrical boxes and set the ground rods. Wiring a new house is a lot more work than I thought. It's not hard, but there is a lot to do and having an experienced electrician to help makes all the difference. Doing as much of the work as I can myself is also saving us a few thousand dollars that can go toward another part of the build.

Building An Off Grid ICF Mountain Home

Guildbrook Farm is an off grid, modern homestead located in the foothills of Appalachia. We take you along on our journey to become more self reliant by growing an organic garden, raising heritage breed chickens and pigs, improve our skills in canning and food preservation, building off the grid renewable energy systems, prepping for events such as natural disasters, and learning old time skills. Join us as we build an off-grid cabin and homestead from raw land while remaining debt-free. Follow our successes and failures as we learn to live a more simple, sustainable lifestyle.

  1. in 1946 we moved into an old farm house with no electric. My father paid $20.00 to have the house wired for electric. Some time later, my mother was so very upset because her electric bill was $9.00 that month. She went to the electric company to complain. She soon realized that the new refrigerator was the culprit. As I look back on it now it seems funny, but the American dollar was worth much more then.

  2. Jeremy, your having too much fun skating back and forth on that scaffolding pulling the wires!
    Great idea though it’s working smarter not harder!! Hope you and Jamie are well and the girls too.

  3. Love the videos. I learned the hard way that the sheet rockers and their spiral saws don’t care about your wiring. I should have made sure my wires were tucked in deeper, and asked them to make sure the spiral bit wasn’t set too deep. It was a mess. Keep up the good work.

  4. (Child Craft books)

    They strolled the lane together
    The sky was studded with stars
    They reached the gate in silence
    as he lifted up the bar
    She neither smiled nor thanked him
    for she knew not how
    cause he was just the farmers son
    and she was just a Jersy cow.

  5. _Hopefully you’ll be making a map of your wiring, with measurements too? Trust me, it will come in handy down the road when you need to do or needed to run down a problem. I use to make these maps and photos place them in a folder on all the projects for my customers when I ran my own construction and remodeling company._
