Again, I'm tight on time so I'm sponging off of other people for now! And when I found this through my friend Alanna, I knew it needed space to iterate on Green, Broke & Living in Kits.

I'll let you 'tour' the home yourself, but I'm suitably impressed. I don't know that I'd want to live in this exact home, but taking several components from here (and maybe an alternative toilet - I just can't imagine that the squatting toilet would be a good idea in the middle of the night, or after coming home from the bar!) and combining them with other sensible and green technologies - I would be quite content!
This reminds me of the cob & hay-bale house I want to build, with the methane-collecting composting toilet and the gas it creates that I can use to heat my hot water. Sigh. It's good to daydream!
