    And all the little pigs have God

    The issue isn't just building an economical house, but also building one whose energy requirements are sustainable. Sure, you can probably afford to build a 3,000 square foot house in podunk Iowa, but the energy demands of that house are going to be considerable.

    I can't imagine a house the size of a lot of people's bathrooms would actually demand that much energy. You would probably only need one bulb to light to the whole place and a incandescent light bulb to heat the place up. The energy costs would come from the appliances like a tv,oven/stove,and or computer regardless of what you built a home that small with.

    How much do you think electric and gas bill are?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
