    I agree with this statement.

    I saw this once and thought it was pretty cool for a 'camping' like house.

    Quite a few people round here live in yurts, a few in tipis and even more in caves. Caves are the best. They maintain an interior temperature of around 20 degrees (68F) year round, irrespective of what the temperature is outside. Brilliant!

    Insulation is your friend.

    I would also live in the Yurt or Dome.

    BTW, here is an article about a hemp house that was built in Asheville,NC. It was on my local news. Pretty damn cool!

    All of them can have bathrooms, kitchens, etc, installed.

    What kind of "bigger" do you mean, in sqft?
