...what sort of ecohome would you live in?

I would love a straw bale house with a living roof, geothermal heating, built-in grey water recycling, solar energy, reclaimed wood flooring, all antique or just old furniture, super efficient appliances and an outdoor jacuzzi heated by wood.

Underground home. Geo Thermals. On demand hot water heating. Heating and cooling that are zone controlled. Wind turbine, solar.

I have no idea what grey water is?

I'd love a log cabin type home built into a hill so sort of half underground and insulated that way. With solar panels and wind turbines for energy and plenty of land for growing own fruit/vegetables and even perhaps keeping chickens for their eggs, plus pets.

We're doing an Earthship next year but made out of cinderblocks (just as sturdy and it takes a LOT less time since you don't have to ram tirs). I also want to experiment with a cob home next year, even if it's just a project, I really want to build one

Really would depend on the area of the country. And well, we have no idea where we want to live once DH gets out of the military (in 15 years....lol!!!).

Grey water is water that has been used already but can be used again.

Like your shower water can be used to flush the toilet.
