    Not sure how “tiny” this is — but I’m hardly about to complain. It looks awesome, and it’s a more-than-welcome break from all the Tumbleweeds and Tumbleweed knockoffs/clones. I love it 🙂

    On a side note — people are creative, and I think this site does a disservice to humanity, somewhat, by showing mostly Tumbleweeds and their clones. Surely there are many unique houses — like this one — that can be featured on the site? I’m not saying, “no more Tumbleweeds grrr argh” — I’m saying, let’s have fewer Tumbleweeds (and clones) and more unique models. Diversity and variety are good — for everyone 😉

    That’s an awesome design. Nothing makes you feel more like you’re living on a UFO than being surrounded by round windows under a dome.

    If you like this, go check out monolithic domes at : http://www.monolithic.org/ Their domes tend to be built in hurricane/tornado zones or for schools and churches. They are so energy efficient that fuel cost savings ( roughly 50 % – 66 % ) repay the costs of construction in 20 years or less as you go larger in size !
