Dome home 

A few adventurous souls building their own dome home in central Wisconsin are going to have a hard time climbing on this rounded 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 CU gallery, which chronicles the journey. Thanks for sharing, guys!

Remember to submit your photos to our CU photo-sharing website. Your treasured moments could become famous on our homepage!
