If you are considering an air source heat pump for your off grid cabin one of the things to consider is that with most products you must pay for a technician to come out and fill the lines. With the Mr Cool DIY kit the pipes are pre-charged so you just hook it up yourself and you're good to go.

What to consider when framing your walls to help out the plumbers and electricians (or yourself when you finally get around to doing those tasks).

This site is owned by Ana White, who has a Youtube channel dedicated to DIY home and furniture construction.

https://www.youtube.com/user/knockoffwood

This is the video I watched (on building a mudroom bench) where she mentioned her new site.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fD4iv9N-Y6I

Her new site lets you design cabinets or furniture like tables, benches etc with their free design software, you send them the plans, they cut the plywood and edge band it if you want, then they ship you the precise cut pieces so you can build it.

A nice Youtube channel called Crafted Workshop with a guy building a small guest house out back of his main house. He does a lot of in-depth explanation of the entire building process.

https://www.youtube.com/c/craftedworkshop/playlists

So far he's posted 5 videos on the construction but he also builds other things like guitars, sheds and furniture

Here's a cool off grid inverter from Cyboinverter that doesn't require a battery bank. It's can be used for heating hot water directly from your PV panels.
