I designed the house, laid every block, cut every log and board, and drove every nail and screw, with my own 2 hands, by myself. Alone.
Designed and installed the solar system and wired the house.
Designed and installed the spring water pumping system into the house, and the on-site water treatment system.
I did everything by myself.
The passive solar is a very good way to go, and is easy to do.
You'll appreciate your use of the thermal mass in the winter, and that's an idea that also used to an extent.
My house is relatively small, so that i didn't have to burn alot of wood to get it warm.
It's just me, and my dog and cats, and we're happy just like that.
