Just wanted to applaud a very well captured sentiment I hope we all are 
beginning to share.
(One of the biggest challenges here in the cloudier, colder NE is 100% non 
polluting, non fossil-reliant heating. Geothermal comes close.)

Whatever home design and organizational structure you may chose, keep in mind we are at 
or approaching the end of the oil era... Other fossil fuels may be able to "fill 
in" for some brief time, but run the numbers, no known juggling will allow the young 
children of today to live in a fossil fuel powered world that operates anything like what 
we have today.
Think in terms of eliminating dependence on energy input, trips to the grocery store, etc. Not necessarily a complete disconnect, but keep moving toward the point where you are not DEPENDENT, as most of us are today.>>
