|Summary text/ abstract||I have been researching low impact development and low cost eco-housing in Britain and overseas for the last seven years. I am particularly interested in collective eco-housing and self-build projects. This report is primarily about new builds, but it acknowledges the vital importance of retrofitting to reducing the environmental impact of our housing. That said, housing should be just as much about justice as the environment. It is possible to build a very low impact ecological house at high cost but it would be difficult to replicate for others and as such cost is embedded into the debates about what a good house should be and do.|
