Plot Synopsis

Each one-hour episode of BUILDING OFF THE GRID follows builders and DIYers as they construct homes off the grid in remote regions of the United States. Each 60-minute program features different builders, including: Chris and Catelyn Williams, who build the home of their dreams -- a 30-foot tall, 700 square-foot, off-grid yurt in Montana, complete with a breathtaking view of the mountains; Alaskan builder Jeff Ward and his son Bryce, the mayor of the North Pole, who combine their talents to create an off-the-grid cabin not too far from Santa's house; the Perrins brothers, who build an extremely remote log hunting cabin in the heart of the Alaskan Range, using archaic tools, materials, and pioneering techniques throughout; and many more builders.

Season 12 of BUILDING OFF THE GRID debuted on Tuesday, October 24, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT on Magnolia Network. In the season opener, "Texas Luxury Tent," a Texas couple teams up with two South African canvas tent experts to create their dream glamping experience. But they soon find the build is anything but luxurious. With rain, heat, and critters, they have to work together to reach the finish line.
BUILDING OFF THE GRID returned for its thirteenth season on Thursday, April 11, 2024 at 9pm ET/PT on Magnolia Network. In the season opener, "Georgia Mountain Cavern," a young family embarks on their biggest and most challenging build yet -- an in-earth cavern in the mountains of northern Georgia. But building on a mountain will be anything but easy as they deal with a rocky terrain, extreme heat and heavy rain.
