Kevin and Kara are looking for a Chicago condo with at least two bedrooms, and no en-suite master bathroom. Kevin's looking for an industrial-style loft with space for a dark room, and absolutely no chandeliers. Kara would like to find a traditional brownstone that only has three or four units. How will this couple find everything they want with such different design requirements and a very modest budget?
Stefani hails from Germany and while on a trip to Haida Gwaii, Canada she met Jason. They decided to try life in the big city of Berlin, but after a year they had had enough of working nine to five and commuting for hours. They longed for a simple life with more personal freedom, so they decided to move back to Haida Gwaii. Not only that, but they wanted to try living off the grid. On an archipelago of islands with a total population of around 4,000, and the nearest town with less than three hundred people, they will be among a handful of rugged souls who choose to live beyond the power lines.
