They totally had me until I read two words "compost toilet"---I can do it on camping trips and such but I dunno if I could do it every day!

Well, we can maybe adjust for a few bene-flushes! :D

If we could somehow minimize the hands on poo element I could probably do it----but if it is anything like that BBC America Eco Challenge where it was day to day hands on poo turning then I'm perfectly happy to let that be your chore. :D

We could design it to look like Lucille Ball in the famous grape stomping episode of I Love Lucy. Complete with sneering "eeeewwwwwww" sound effects!

Brilliant!

I have always wanted to make the cottage like this. Make it blend into its enviroment. How beautiful, thanks for sharing!

I can't get past the scene where Gandolf bangs his head in Frodo's house. I'm tall, it would hurt to live there. No room for a big screen TV. No high speed interweb. Nope, not for this master of carbon generation.
