Have you heard about these? There is a guy in Wales built one for his family... You can get plans for them and there is a movement there to build more as they are green... they are self sufficient... solar electricity, wood heat, really quite amazing.
I am just getting started but I am looking for support to build one myself. I plan to put together a paper and apply for a non-profit grant to build 2. It will be myself and my sister. We will build ours as examples and then plan to help others build them as well as low usage green houses for low income people and families. The power companies will not like them but that is part of the glory. They are low cost, the ones in Wales costing about $4000 to build in US dollars. So the cost of the property and then the cost of the materials, most of which are naturally cut and used from the property if possible. Check out the site and support the cause. Would love to see a lot of interst as this could help us get this project off the ground.
