Only suggestions I have are to look into solar power instead of tapping into the grid. And also steel homes. Though I don't know how 'eco friendly' they are but they are virtually indestructible and low-maintenence (no termites etc). You could just build the frame of steel and then use whatever you want for the rest to give it a strong foundation. Sounds awesome though, we are about to do the same Buy some cheap land and slowly build our house with what we save in rent!
