The Eco Planning Guide section is full of thoughts and ideas on how to
plan, build, live, clean, eat, do yard care, get places and take care of
our pets in alternative ways that will possibly have less negative
effect on each of us and our planet and hopefully leave our Earth in at
least as good of shape as it was when we came into it. After all
most of what we do each and every day is done simply by force of habit.
It is hoped that one or more of these thoughts and ideas will inspire
you to stop and think before doing and possibly change a long-standing
habit into one that might be better.
The Our EcoHouse section is all
about the planning, building and living in our own EcoHouse. Our
lot, our house plans, pictures of the entire construction of our
house, pictures of the finished outside and inside, as well as the final
pricing are included in this section. Although we had never built
a house before, we were able to get financing, design from scratch,
subcontract and direct the building of our house quite successfully and
ended up with a beautiful and ecologically smart house for about $70-$75 per square foot.
October or November 2014 there will be links to my Ebay store where you
may purchase many of the items listed on this site. My store will
contain only items MADE IN USA,
with the exception of organic clothing. I will attempt to stay
with MADE IN USA
items but there may be a few others made elsewhere.
We are always open to suggestions on how to
improve this site and any new ideas others might come up with. We
would be very happy to link to your eco, green or sustainable website as
well. Just contact us if you would like to be added. I am
especially interested in websites of other ecohouses that have been
built or older houses or mobile homes that have been converted.
