Yeah, even our animals live in domes...
I probably could have taken better pictures to show how curved it is, but it does present a challenge in interior design sometimes.
The intention was to put actual walls up on both of these outside rooms, as with many ideas, life got in the way, the upside was that the rooms stayed warm, the downside was lack of privacy, although the setup with the quilt in the next picture was replicated on all of the banisters when kids were in the house.
Normally a stovepipe would be cutting through the center of this picture, my parents just remodeled and haven't gotten it back inside, we probably will about the time it warms up. =)
Triangles making up the ceiling, the kit my father bought included all the joints for all of those triangles to make the frame.
The view from above (note the snazzy new wood flooring and leather furniture, they wisely waited until their destructive children were out of the house before this remodel) The bright light is the window, it was very warm and very bright in there, despite it being late in the day.
There are probably a few things that looking back my father would have done differently... Like closing off those rooms, but overall the house has given my family thirty-some years of living space... and good stories to tell new co-workers and such.
