The Round House

I drive by this odd looking house on my way to the grocery.
It's completely round except for a regular looking garage
attached to the side. It's completely covered in roofing shingles!
I wish they would cut their grass ..or um..weeds...so I could
get a better picture! LOL! And did you notice those windows?
All different sizes and randomly placed...they remind me
of one of these preschool toys...
I think of these puzzle boxes every time I drive by! :)
I'd really like to see inside!

  3. What a very interesting, alternative architecture.;) I have seen round houses here too.;) I think you are right about the toy, they might have been inspired by it.;)

  9. Brian ~ oh good...you do it. Then I won't have to! I want to know if it's all open inside or has divided rooms, etc.

  10. So Betsy, my question is...did they MOVE IN IT or are they still living in the trailer sitting beside it? The kids call it Ugly Epcot.

  12. I have a house that looks like that near my house as well. And their yard has high weeds too! Maybe they are related? Ha!

  13. It really does look like the puzzle...too funny. I wonder what it's like living inside. How would you hang a picture on the wall? What would the closets be like? Or the kitchen?

    Maybe you should stop the next time you drive past and ask if they will give you a tour....tell em Stephanie sent you!

  15. Stevie ~ I know! So many unanswered questions. The tall weeded yard makes them seem unfriendly, so no chance at all I'd knock on the door...I'd get lost in the jungle just trying to get to it! ha.

  17. Wonder if the owners are odd shaped too. ??? I had forgotten about the puzzle box toy. My kids loved them.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I wonder if they have to order special round/curved sofas and bookcases etc.?

    ReplyDelete
  19. There is one of those here too and I have seen it inside..all round! ;D

  20. That house has always puzzled me too. Let me know if you ever figure anything out about it!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thinking about all the weeds, I wonder if they're growing a special weed inside the house? :)

  22. Perfect comparison. Domes like this provide an architect with the opportunity to bust the parameters of a typical home.

  23. Justin ~ hey...you may be on to something there! Although being odd, they are drawing more attention to themselves than if they just had a normal looking place. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. oh me too betsy..i would give ANYTHING to see inside....

    ReplyDelete
  25. geodisic domes are indeed pretty unique

    ReplyDelete
  26. We have a few of these Geodesic Dome Homes in our area too. I'm not sure I could get used to it, but the dogs might like to chase each other around and around and around!

  27. We also have a couple of these homes in our county. Very interesting.

  28. hahhaha. Ys,it DOES!!! Whoa. Maybe, Betsy, they keep their weeds long to stop people gazing in on them! :)
