I’ve always known about this tiny dome home that’s practically in my parent’s backyard in a very unlikely place.. Miami, Florida.
It turns out that it was built here before any of this area was developed which is the West area of Miami nearest to the Everglades.
Back when this area was considered the woods, this little dome house was built. Back then it was in the middle of nowhere. Today it’s a very developed area and this is the only shelter like it around.
While staying over at my parent’s house this weekend I was able to walk over and capture some shots of it for you.
Afterwards my dad was able to tell me more about it which I just shared with you in the last few paragraphs.

I don’t know exactly how this home was built, but I think it’s so cool because it seems like a cross between a dome, yurt, and cob.
I wish I was able to get some interior shots for you but I felt I was already pushing it by getting into their yard to take these photos. Maybe next time around, I’ll knock but I really didn’t want to invite myself in without warning.

You’ve got to wonder.. Has this had the same owners the entire time? Has it been passed down? Either way, I think it’s great that it’s still around.
Every other home in this neighborhood was built in the 1980s and 1990s. Today you wouldn’t be able to build anything like this here but it’s so cool to see something this unique and small still around.
