Every now and again, we see a home that just makes our jaws drop — and this is one of them! This amazing Norwegian family designed and built an incredible glass dome around their cob house built only from natural and reclaimed materials.

The dome allows them to grow grapes, veggies and multiple fruit trees, and they have a wastewater recycling system that waters their plants from the water they use in the house. The whole set-up is mind-blowing, so please enjoy the video below!

Madeleine and Nollie purchased this 800-square-foot Monolithic dome home from a man who had lived in it without many amenities. They took the empty concrete dome and transformed it into a cozy Airbnb with decor inspired by the “Hobbit.”

There’s a large open-concept living/dining/kitchen area for feasting, reading, and relaxing. Walls block off a cozy bedroom with a queen bed, and a bathroom with a large walk-in shower. What do you think of this dome home?

Have you seen WWII Quonset Huts before? I wasn’t familiar with them until today! They were used during WWII to house troops or as agricultural buildings, but when the war was over, the goverment sold them to the public.

This one in Southern Illinois is in a college town and sits on 1/4 acre. It could be yours for $79,000 — land included! I think with some sprucing up this could be quite the adorable property. Would you buy it?

Spaceship? Dome? Yurt? Cabin? Whatever you want to call it, this newly-remodeled home is absolutely gorgeous! While it’s by no means tiny with three bedrooms, two baths, and a spacious living area/kitchen, the alternative design makes it worth looking at!

I love seeing what people do with circular spaces since they present a number of design challenges. For example, they went with a custom curved countertop in the kitchen to go with the flow of the home. What do you think?

WARNING: Wide-angle lens shots ahead.

The first thing I thought when I saw this dome home was “snowglobe”! And in Ontario, there’s a good chance a winter visit would allow you to sit in the comfort of the loft bed and watch the snowfall from the sky.

Inside this solar-powered off-grid vacation home you’ll find a hammock, hand-painted mural, cozy living room space, and absolutely awesome views! There’s a bathroom with running water during the warmer months as well.

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!

Originally built in 1971, this art deco dome home recently underwent a major facelift, and the result is a bright and colorful art-deco dome home that sleeps 7!

Inside there’s a full kitchen (with dishwasher), two queen bedrooms downstairs, and then two loft bedrooms upstairs and a bathroom. It looks like a fun place to stay, and is only a 3 minute walk from the Outer Banks beaches.

Dome homes are so fun, and this little one tucked in the woods on a 65-acre organic farm is no exception. It’s 100% glamping — no heat, electricity, etc. — but you have exclusive access to the host’s basement bathroom, and can use their deck and grill for cooking.

The dome was made with locally sourced timber from the property and boasts a lovely queen bed and sitting area. You can spend your days roaming the farm, and enjoy in-season produce, as well.

Take a look and tell us, would you build a dome home?

This is an amazing Pink Dome Bungalow in Galveston, Texas where you can enjoy an awesome family vacation. It’s about 1,400 square feet, so “small” rather than tiny, and features three bedrooms and two bathrooms!

The deck surrounding the dome adds another 2,000 square feet of outdoor living space, which is pretty incredible. Of course, the thing that makes this dome especially unique is the abundance of pink accents, from the tile to the pillows to all-pink-cookware.
