Low impact living is at the heart of what I’ve been doing for years. It’s what drives me and the content of my blogs, articles, books and house plans. Low impact living encompasses much more than just housing, although dirt cheap DIY housing paid with cash is a big part of the solution. Low impact living is intertwined with almost everything we do. I really hope readers will take a few hours or, better yet, a few days reading through the following sites to get a good understanding of low impact living and then put these ideas into regular use.

We have been trying to find the bags, but have been unsuccessful. Can you make suggestions as to where to find them. We wanted to “play around ” with this to see if its something we can do. We have researched and been planning for about 5 years now. We have found out we can build in our county. Would like to start with a shed to see if theis is something we can physically do. Please send suggestions on where to find bags. Lowes, Home Depot dont have them here. We live in Middle Tennessee. USA
There are a list of bag suppliers if you scroll down this page: http://earthbagbuilding.com/resources.htm#supplies
