    I know someone who has a styrofoam house that looks like any traditional stick built house, they actually heat it with used oil. And then someone else who has a straw bale house that is super efficient. It looks like stucco on the outside and regular textured drywall on the inside, the window seals are all about two foot deep due to the depth of the straw bales but it was very cheap to build and very very efficient.

    They are very efficient, The company that builds the sips houses here, turned one into his office. Had the air on 77 degrees felt a lot cooler than my small apartment set at 74 degrees.
