ecohome, definition of
An Ecohome is a house which has been designed from the ground up to be environmentally friendly whilst at the same time energy efficient.
Usually this requires a custom build (which can be expensive); although with some careful thinking it is possible to make an existing property more eco friendly whilst preserving the embedded energy incurred when it was built. Too often existing properties are demolished that could have been made 'good' with a bit thought.
