Friends

I was bored, so today I wanted to talk about something a little different.  The type of house I plan to live in the future.  Its called a Geodesic Dome house.  They look sorta like igloos made of wood.  They're pretty cool looking in my opinion, much more unique than normal houses.  They're also a whole lot better in more ways than one.  One example is that Geodesic Dome houses are cheeper to build, and cuts costs on heating and cooling.  This is because of its circular design.  Because its like a bubble, the materials to make the framework would cost about 1/3 less than a box-like house of the same size.  The reason why it also cuts costs on heating and cooling is because airflow circulates on the inside, eliminating cold spots in the winter.

Another cool feature about this unique type of house is that they can withstand against the elements.  The framework is made up of dozens of triangles, nature's strongest shape.  This reinforces the house to put up with just about anything nature can throw at it.  Except for lava.  XD  There are true stories about people who own dome houses and how their homes have survived earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornados!  I know this all sounds too good to be true, but it is true!

The feeling of being inside a dome house is also said to be unlike anything you could get from a normal box-like house.  People who own dome houses said that the space inside makes you feel more at ease.  With all these benefits, I'm surprised that we haven't been building more Dome Houses!  What about you?  Would you live in a Geodesic Dome house?
