    I love that walkway and the outdoor space.

    The interior design as shown is fine for some. I am not fond of entering the bedroom for guests to use the bathroom. Perhaps a simple reverse of the utility room and bath would alleviate this issue. It is up to others to spend this kind of money. Myself, I cannot afford this pre-fab prefurnished home.
    As for the rest of the design, being elevated allows for additional use of space underneath or would be great in a flood zone to help protect the main contents. Elevation would be great for certain views of the countryside.

      I agree, Joyce, on switching the utility room and the bathroom. I love the elevation and the views!

    Way to much darn gray color, makes the place look so unwelcoming and dull…and a gray bathtub…that reminds me of my grandmother’s casket….no thank you

      Ah, but the grey that you see may not be the grey that it is… due to the limitations of film or camera, plus shadows etc.

      But agree on the pricing… aye aye aye… but as James says, it is built to withstand storms etc. And that doesn’t come cheap.

    The price quoted for a completed home is absolutely insane!

      They certainly can seem that way, custom built prefabricated homes that prioritize high performance design, superior materials, safe and durable, healthy and comfortable can cost a lot more than you basic housing structures. Especially, when part of what they’re selling is not only high, green building, energy efficiency and sustainability but also hurricane resistance and high durability, with lower long term maintenance. So it’s basically a product that significantly exceeds normal standards and you can place them where other structures may not work as well.

      However, you can always just built a similar structure that isn’t built to those standards to get it to a lower cost range, provided that’s enough for your needs, and a lot depends on just what are the requirements for your area and how you choose to finish it.

      I couldn’t agree more! The whole point of going tiny is to save money!

        @Lisa – Except there are multiple ways to save money and the point was never about ignoring actual needs or what someone wanted to get out of it.

        Everything just has a trade off and not everyone has the same needs or wants the same life.

        For example, a home that can withstand a hurricane would save a lot of money over a home that will get destroyed and would need to be replaced every time there’s a storm. If you don’t live in such an area great, you don’t need this home, but for someone who does it can make a very real difference in their life…

        A green, efficient, and durable home can save a lot in long term costs that over the years can add up to multiple times what was the purchase price of the home. Producing a lifetime of savings that can far exceed any one time purchase savings…

        A healthy home can save a lot in long term healthcare needs as well as maintenance costs, such as preventing mold and other issues that could effect your health… Again, there are many ways to save money, I just pointed out a few to prove the point…

        There’s also other reasons people go tiny, like for sustainability, being better for the environment, shrinking their carbon footprint, being able to have an alternate lifestyle, etc.

        So it was never one size fits all, everyone has to do it the same way or else. The point is ultimately freedom and the ability to live your life how you choose to for what’s optimal and appropriate to you and no one else, as everyone just does what’s best for them, and this is largely achieved by eliminating waste and focusing on what’s important but that could always be different from one person to the next and their specific situation…

          All quite true. I stand corrected.

        The whole point is the build a house that the owner wants. Price is just one part of the equation/factor. And factoring in weather resistance, in this case storms, unfortunately doesn’t come cheap.

    I have always loved round homes and this one is done nicely. As always, I can see how I might change things a bit to suit my own preferences. Though it is a round home (well, close enough), I prefer geodesic domes because of their energy efficiency. I would still leave everything on the first floor and just enjoy the spaciousness of the high dome ceiling…maybe have a storage loft over a bedroom and bathroom. But even that would need changing. Firstly, I would expand the house by a few feet. Even 35′ diameter would add lots of space and if you took it out to 40′, holy cow, it would feel like an estate! hahaha The few extra feet would allow for another bathroom, possibly just a half bath but that would keep guests out of my personal bathroom altogether. Keep one bedroom as is but because I only need one bedroom, I would like to make the wall to the second bedroom sliding doors that it can be left open or closed, depending on what you might want to use it for or if someone shows up unexpectedly (I hate that) and you want to close off whatever mess was in that area…I’m an artist and projects don’t always look guest ready! 😉 Put that eating table out in the middle away from the wall and add a small island on wheels that can be shoved up against the wall if you want more space in the middle but be available as additional counter space if you are baking or such. And give me a nice big refrigerator! hahaha Anyway, round homes are unique and wonderful, and this one certainly sparks the imagination! Thanks for sharing!

      The problem with geodesic domes is they amplify every little noise. Which might not worry you, but having other people living/sleeping in the house it can be quite… shall we say, intense.

        Like insulation, there’s a number of ways of designing the home, along with a fairly wide range of products specifically made for such application, to create layers of sound insulation that can significantly reduce the spread of sounds and vibrations.

        Youtube channel Home RenoVision/DIY (two channels) has a number of videos on how to DIY sound dampening your walls, etc. if you’re doing a remodel. Or you can take tips from those videos for cost effective options to choose when having a new home built… He’s a very down to earth former contractor who pretty much has dedicated his retirement years to helping people DIY or at least know what products are good to use and which to avoid, as well as where to get them at the best prices… Though, he’s Canadian, so some products you may have to look for local alternatives…

          And I’m Kiwi so therefore you can probably double the Canadian $ for the actual price. Ai yai yai… or whatever your shock verbalisation is.

      • James D.
        June 15, 2022, 12:41 am

        Even by you, DIY should be a more reasonable price and part of the point of that channel is to find the more affordable ways to get it done…
