^^^^ whoah the two of you!! for now, I would be happy with the "mood CD" with the surf & whatever else it has to offer. I listened to it (the surf sound) once in somebody's house during a massage session, it was such a feeling of peace. Where can I get it?

Nice ideas.
I once thought of getting a grass carpet in my appartment in the top floor. Thought of using pond tarp and some clay pebbles and then on top of that a fabric and then the soil and grass. Basically like a huge potted plant. But of course it was just fantasy - I think it would have worked, but I am not sure about the weight of it all (Dont want to sit in the living room of the people below). Also of course I did not own the house or flat, so I could not legally do anything - I was even getting in trouble just for having tomatoe plants outside my window.
Sand in the bathroom - nice idea, but I guess it would carry all around the house eventually

In the summer we can have an enclosed outdoor shower and keep the beach sand outdoors. Hm. I HATE practical limitations! Let alone limitations set by apartmnt managers! SHEESH!

The problem of tracking the sand into the rest of the house would be solved by the outflow from hot tub being routed as a "small stream" about a foot wide, and four of five inches deep, right in front of the door to the rest of the house. You would step onto a flat rock, then into the "stream", and out onto another flat rock that would be immediately in front of the of the door (Garade vor die Tor?), where your feet would wind up before going into the house. The "Stream"
would disappear beneath vegetation to the reservoir for the pump that would return the water to the heater for it's return to the hot tub, via under ground piping that Tee, (Ateyo) and I are installing ourselves.

You wouldn't be able to do the glowing plants, but you could make an outdoor jacuzzi/pool and grow those plants around it. You could also build a heated greenhouse and grow tropical plants and mosses in there around some kind of water feature.

Ateyo and I have been building this retirement palace since 2003. The two of us have been designing the master Bath, that will house the Hot tub for a year. The room is completely framed in, and sheathed, with the insulation in place.
In April, we will start laying the plumbing for the toilet, stand up two person shower, twin sinks, and the in ground, free form, lava rock hot tub, with the waterfall hot water, supply, and the foot washing return "stream". Some time in May or June, we will have the beach sand, and all the landscaping in place, and have our first official soak together.

Wow, sounds nice. Are you considering some solar powered way to heat the whole thing or is it going to take a large propane tank outside to keep it running like that. I mean - we are already worried about taking a bath once a week in warm water because it takes about 2-3 liters of oil to heat it and another 3-4 liters per day to keep the water warm in the reservoir, not to mention how much it would take to keep the bathtub warm at all times...

Right now, we heat the house and the water with propane UNTIL we pour the next hanger floor. In the floor which acts like a trombe wall, is a "radiator" of PEX tubing. This is a special type of "plastic" tubing that you can bend fairly small radius turns into. We will use this to pick up the winter sun, The hanger roof blocks the floor from the Summer sun, store it's heat in the 40 by 25 foot, 6 inch thick concrete slab. The transfer pumps the water from the heat sink,
(the hanger floor), to more PEX radiators encapsulated in the floors of the house, valving allows us to shut off the water flow to unused rooms while we are sleeping, conserving the heat for the bedroom, and master bathroom. (Yes, you will be walking in warm sand).
As for the hot water, this spring as the money becomes available, the two of us will build our own solar water heaters, for ONE TENTH, (or even less) the cost of purchasing the units. Once that is done, the propane tank will remain as a back up system, that would be rarely, if ever used, except during periodic maintainance.

very cool or rather warm Lucky you are in Texas where it is not too cold, I guess. The -20°C we had two weeks ago would have killed any solar water system that is not a complex one running on antifreeze. I am planning on building a fairly simple warm water system here, it will only operate from late spring to fall, I think, but it may save us the trouble of having to use oil at all in summer. I try to use low cost materials but it is actually not easy to get this cheap. And the commercial collectors are amazingly cheap these days...
