Not to beat a dead horse or anything, just wondering if anyone can answer a couple of questions about this show.
1. How did the Brown family find their current plot of land on that island?
2. How big is their current plot?
3. How much did it cost them?

I've lived around people who're "off the grid" or live as close to that as possible up in N/W Montana and not even they live like the tar paper shack Brown family. At worst they'd have a single wide just plopped out in the middle of the woods or maybe a camper (for a real short time as it gets DAMN cold in a tin can during winter).
Just wondering....

How would anyone on this forum know the answers to these questions? It's a freaking TV show. No one knows if they even bought anything at all. You might try contacting the Brown's directly. They aren't that hard to find on the internet. They have their own websites.

The only silver lining on this ridiculous show is the weekly recap.

Actually it's very possible given the breadth,width and depth of the people on City-Data. Over the years on this forum I'm constantly surprised by what information people have in their data banks.

If one does not like it, I have a solution...1. Change channels 2. Turn of the TV.

jimj - I caught a passing comment that it was around 26 acres (or maybe 29?). How they bought it and what they paid for it, I couldn't tell you. If they even bought it.

It's entertainment as already stated - and finding out the even most of the people on buying Alaska/Hawaii/Wherever, didn't actually buy the property they said was sold...

Besides the part time jobs - the TV job the browns are on generates money too. When you have 9 people in the family that are being filmed that can add up quick.
