I will be building an Ecohome in the middle of Colorado where it snows for a third of the year, is freezing for about half of it, and has a couple warm summer months. With all the different building and insulation techniques I have come across, I still have no idea which would be best for my specific climate. If it makes a difference, I intend to have some sort of slab foundation with air heated piping, as well as a wood burning stove. Thanks in advance!
