Solar thermal is far more efficient at converting the energy in sunlight and, if you follow these instructions, you can build a Solar Thermal heater for next to nothing. It’s intended as a fun project, but with a little tweaking to make it more robust and control the flow properly it can be made into something practical.

Living Space 21 aims to provide cheap, low impact housing for the UK. If you have 40 square metres of land with access you can have one of their Studios on Stilts for £60,000. What’s more, they’ve teamed up with the Co-operative bank who will provide a 95% mortgage, with stages if you choose to go the self build route.
If you do go the self build route they will supply the frame with doors, patio and stilts, if necessary, for less than £20,000. Plotsearch is recommended if you need to find the land for your build.
