dome home 

A few adventurous souls building their own dome home in central Wisconsin are going to have a hard time climbing on the roof to watch the stars at night. But this energy-efficient dome will provide many other benefits to user wardblvd. Wood-burning biomass and solar power will heat and light the house. You can follow the dome building from foundation to (near) finish at their gallery, which chronicles the journey. Thanks for sharing, guys!
