Environmental concerns, political unrest and burnout have all contributed to a recent surge in families looking for the peace of mind offered by semi, or fully, off-grid living. If you’re ready to live outside, without sacrificing luxury, a Sanctuary Home by Edgewood combines artistic architecture and craftsmanship, with all the capabilities needed to be self-reliant and safe.
There are more technologies available today than ever which can provide reliable off-grid heat and power. We’ll consider the options most practical for your home and specific location, such as active and passive solar, geothermal heat pumps, convective cooling, and more.
We can build areas of your house that offer additional protection from extreme weather conditions, EMF and radiation exposure, or home invasion. These can be simple rooms, or entire floors, equipped with the comforts of home, and ample space for long-term food pantries, safe rooms, gun lockers, etc.
Our engineers can determine how best to capture and manage your home’s most valuable resource: water. Whether we source from wild water, harvested rainwater, a well system, cistern tank, or a combination, we’ll ensure your family has reliable access to clean water.
Our proprietary cathedral roof system, the Thermal Blanket™, combined with our thick, handcrafted full log walls, carries a Class "A" fire rating against wildfires. Additional protection can be provided by creating defensible spaces, and installing fire sprinkler and/or suppression systems.
Your home can be equipped with indoor and outdoor security cameras, running live feeds accessible from anywhere in the world. Programmed to deliver custom alerts to your smartphone, these systems keep your family informed and secure.
Advances in satellite-internet service have allowed us to work, study and stay connected in even the most remote locations. We can install the system that offers your location the fastest, most reliable connection, including Starlink, where available.
Building a Sanctuary can take several years to complete. In order to deliver the level of service and detail each home requires, we carefully select each project to ensure we are partnering with like-minded individuals. We invite you to get qualified by completing a short questionnaire. Once we have reviewed your project, we will schedule an interview where you’ll be introduced to Edgewood’s founder, Brian Schafer. We’ll talk in-depth about your project, answer questions, discuss timelines, and decide if your Sanctuary home is a good fit for us, and for you.
