In February 2016 we completed our first completely off-grid building – Meaning the building required absolutely no connection to mains services and was completely self-contained. The client had purchased an idyllic plot of land by a lakeside, deep in Hook Park Forest in Dorset at a very affordable price due to the land’s lack of mains supply.
A key to living off-grid is being extremely energy efficient and ensuring high levels of building performance are achieved to protect the warmth generated by sustainable means. The client chose The Break, a standard design model of ours and tailored the interior to his exact requirements. Projects of a similar nature: The potential for off-grid living opens up vast opportunities in terms of building placement and economy.
Glamping yurts are a wonderful chance for people to enjoy a vacation that brings you closer to purity and nature.
Posted in Articles and Reviews, Glamping, Heritage and History, Off Grid Homes, Treehouses. So many people choose yurt holidays UK in order to sample the quality and essence of what it is like to enjoy a life ‘off the grid.’ There is a family, who in 2008, took their love of living a unique life in a home that many could only dream of into a permanent residence.
So many of us are living our day-to-day lives in high intensity environments which has caused more and more people to begin swaying towards the need to find a place of outer and inner calm.


St Giles is the patron saint of cripples: a hermit born in Athens in the 8th century he spent much of his life in France where he lived in a forest for some of the time living off the milk of a female deer.
The land also had an existing dilapidated mobile home on it, which qualified for a certificate of lawfulness for replacement.
Boutique Modern incorporates extremely high levels of insulation into our buildings as standard and are capable of increasing performance levels through seamless use of extra building technology. Construction of the building took 14 weeks inside The Factory including the external unit housing all off-grid machinery and delivery to final position and completion took just 4 working days.
By it’s very nature, land without existing mains provision is drastically more affordable than enabled land as well as meaning that difficult to access plots become available both in the UK and abroad – All that is required is a water source. When it comes to glamping Glastonbury is a popular place given the links with the icon festival which takes place there.
Located near the centre of Festus, Missouri, United States, the Sleeper family were granted the occupancy following checks from city officials to live full time in their spectacular cave home.
Our glamping UK vacations are a perfect chance for this but a superb example of taking things one step further comes from the couple who used their time and initiative to leave their jobs and build their dream home….made from recycled windows over-looking a lake. The unit would draw water from the immediately adjacent lake which would be heated by a water source heat pump, electricity would be produced via solar panels and stored in a battery for use when required and rainwater would be harvested for sanitary use.


It was on this basis that Boutique Modern was selected as the chosen builders for the project. The client, a carpenter by trade, was then able to begin his desired finishing touches including a large deck over the water and is even considering ordering a further Boutique Modern unit as an additional bedroom further round the lakeside.
Boutique Modern has close working relationships with suppliers of off-grid technology and experts to specify performance requirements.
The unit also used a small silent diesel generator for times when excess electricity was required and housed a wood burning stove for sustainable heat.
