Mary Beth, with regard to hot water for your studio...
I also define misery by the degree of cold water I stick
my hands in to continue working.
I am not sure what you saw in Europe to heat water, but there
is a new resource which is called a tankless-water-heater.
I am sure there are lots of new-age eco businesses who will guide
you but I did find the following:
http://www.tankless-water-heater.com and perhaps you can go from there.
There must be versions for smaller amounts of hot water...
They are expensive, around $500.00...
