Earthen Dome with European Soaking Tub

This cob structure sits at the Saoirse Learning Center, where the owner wants others to learn and experience tiny and alternative living styles:

Offering professionally conducted workshops and wellness retreats along with unique accommodation options, Jen and her crew are on a mission to help more people free themselves from the stresses of the modern world, to live in harmony with themselves and their surroundings, and learn how to live life more sustainably.

She has two other homes on her property, but I just love this dome and all the character inside and out!

Our unique dome retreat is nestled on ten acres of lush, shaded property. We are just off of Hwy 281 and within 1 mile of historic downtown Blanco. This unusual style of living is offset by the rustic feel of a relaxing, quiet country stay.

Our dome comfortably sleeps two guests on its queen size bed, has a well equipped kitchen and a European soak tub that doubles as a shower if you prefer.

    Is it a possibility for you to send me specialized emails of only “Earthen” material? Also, are there any known books I can purchase on the subject as well as how to create ones that will last?

    I think it’s ADORABLE. I Love the front door the glass window with the flowers on it. I Love the kitchen too but I prefer a stove in it. The tub was unusual never seen one like it but I Loved it.

    That is not a European soaking tub. Though it looks really nice. Seems like some Americans do not know a lot about European or Scandinavian interior design – but keep claiming design similarities. Please stop trying to claim similarities unless you actually know.

      Actually, European-style bathrooms are just typical of what’s otherwise often referred to as “transitional design,” which simply means that they combine elements from different eras and design movements, which this design does incorporate with the artisan mosaic tiling, Ofuros inspired soaking tub that has become fairly popular in Europe, making the tub the center piece of the bathroom, next to a pedestal sink, etc are all European design influences…

      Seriously, designers these days are drawing upon centuries of history and a multitude of cultural influences, but as long as those elements are drawn from Europe, past or present, then they’re going to be called European… It’s just how that works, even when an American takes the idea and runs with it with something completely hand made, because it’s giving credit to the source of the design/inspiration!
