Some beautifully detailed design! We love the shower area in particular.

Solar panels are viable in higher latitudes (ie far north in northern hemisphere or far south in southern hemisphere) as he lack of sunshine in the winter is compensated for by the long daylight hours in the summer. I recently traveled in northern Scotland and was delighted to see many houses with solar panels. This was in latitudes of 55+ deg north! I'm contemplating adding some solar here - at 45deg south we do get looong light days in the summer.
