"The autonomous house is defined as a huse operating independently of any inputs except those of its immediate environment. The house is not linked to utility lines for gas, water, electricity or drainage, but instead uses the energy of the sun, wind and rain to service itself and process its own wastes. Together with its surrounding site it resembles a land-based space station which is designed to provide an environment suitable for life but is not connected with the existing life-support structures of the Earth. The autonomous house uses the life-giving properties of the Earth, but in so doing, it provides an environment for the occupants without interfering with or altering these properties."
