off grid life

blandford, nova scotia

our home, designed and built by Susan and Brainard Fitzgerald

For us, it was all about living on the coast. We believe that life is too valuable to spend living ordinarily. So we sought adventure and solace living off grid on the shore of an isolated cove on Nova Scotia’s South Shore.
