Here are just a few examples of ecologically sustainable housing designs that can be used by anyone even on a limited income. You can visit and stay in an amazing eco-village in Peru and volunteer there for one month or more, go to this site here http://www.volunteeringecotrulypark.blogspot.com/
Check out First Earth which was a documentary with the aim of filming and photographing as many ecological housing designs as possible.
''FIRST EARTH is a documentary about the movement towards a massive paradigm shift for shelter -- building healthy houses in the old ways, out of the very earth itself, and living together like in the old days, by recreating villages. It is a sprawling film, shot on location from the West Coast to West Africa. An audiovisual manifesto filmed over the course of 4 years and 4 continents, FIRST EARTH makes the case that earthen homes are the healthiest housing in the world; and that since it still takes a village to raise a healthy child, it is incumbent upon us to transform our suburban sprawl into eco-villages.''
This is an brilliant example of Sustainable Freedom. Desert based Housing that is completely self sustainable generating its own electricity and water with zero pollution.
Also visit the Earthships website, this organization have built eco-homes in areas that have suffered environmental disasters such as Haiti, China and Africa.
Another source of ecological housing is european based Simon Dale's woodland housing designs can be made with natural materials for less than 5K

Thanks to those people that like to share knowledge:
You can also make a simple solar water heater with black rubber tubing on a roof in the daytime, which provides hot water effectively for a shower
