    Thanks for the posting the link.

    Really? Most furniture is square or rectangular. Since the walls are angled instead of vertical, there is a large part of the floor space that is too short to use. There is lots of vertical space overhead that is not useable floor space.

    Round buildings look cool but are very inefficient use of space.

    My oldest son rented one for 2 years. There wasn't any real extra space between their furniture and the walls, about the same as your regular home. Kitchen cabinetry was all custom installed. They had high ceilings yes, but that high ceiling made that place extra cool in the summer and the wood stove evenly heated it in the winter. I was never in it, but the pictures I saw of it were nice. They moved to Oklahoma, and now wish they hadn't.
