Your hub is superb, and the issues you’ve got had ! A few years ago a friend and I visited the Earthship demonstration house in New Mexico. Much like what you describe, it’s built half underground out of recycled supplies. It operates fully off the grid – collects its own electrical energy by way of solar panels and its own water. My background is in water conservation, so I was intrigued with their rainwater collection and filtration system, took a number of images, and wrote a hub about it when I got here again.

So far as community goes, I am certain poorer communities may be simply as harmonious and pleasing to dwell in as richer ones. Usually more so.
