My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

Building Green (Another option)
My aunt told me that SMU is building several houses on campus as a test bead so I did a little searching and came up with this link and pictures. The pictures were robbed from the site at the link. Looks like there may be another alternative to building green down here? It would sure take the back breaking labor out of filling and moving sandbags! Perhaps using sand bags up to a certain level then switching to plastic blocks would make a build stronger and easier to build once the level got to a height where sandbags would be too much work?
Worth checking out. Main problem would be coming up with all the plastic, but seems like there is a lot of aluminum can recycle bins around here. Perhaps we would also start seeing bins for recycling plastic.
