They are really interesting but very hard to impossible to build closets and put in bedrooms. I have been in a dome and it is the same thing, really hard to make rooms let alone make closet space, nice to look at but rotten to live in!
Why not? With many types of 'alternate' building, such as mud brick, straw bale or rammed earth, you can build a house in any shape you like! And of course, in some traditional cultures most of the buildings were round - for example, igloos and yurts. The one in the photo is rather cool too!
I don't like the look of them at all. Having watched ' The Block ' this year with an octagonal building, they came up with all kinds of building, plumbing and decorating problems, purely because of the shape of the building. They had to use every trick in the book to create storage and space for furniture. The bedrooms in particular looked very small because of the space lost due to being circular. If it was a choice between renting or living in a round house, I would do it, but otherwise, no thank you.
I forgot that we did get a gift of liquer cherry truffles for Christmas. I just found them when cleaning out the cupboard. I haven't tried them, but my husband says that they are very nice. He got them as a Kris Kringle gift.
