Photo of the Week Inside a Dome Home 

In February 2010, CU photographer wardblvd shared some pictures of the beginnings of his dome home. He built the energy-efficient dome home from the ground up in central Wisconsin. Now, a little more than a year later, wardblvd has more photos to share. The inside of this green home is just as neat as the outside. What makes it so interesting are the angles and wood shapes that tell you the home is a dome home. Scan the gallery of photos to see the entire inside of the house. It includes a greenhouse and naturally lighted rooms. Plus, the completed dome home is energy neutral and uses different forms of energy to supply the home. And if you are interested in any certain room or aspect of the house, leave a message for wardblvd in the comments below the photo.

Thank you CU Photographer wardblvd for submitting more photos this week! Also, check out Building Our Dome Home gallery for all the photos from the project.

Please continue to submit photos to the CU photo-sharing site! The photos don’t just go on the web; they can end up in the print magazine, as well.

Plus, each week the Photo of the Week is taken from that week’s submissions. You have to submit every week for a chance to win this honor!

Remember to fill out the captions and give your gallery a name all its own. The more we know about an image, the more we can take from it. I know I enjoy reading about the different animals, especially when they all have fun names.
