    Would you live in one of these?

    Would you live in one(or all) of these structures as a means of permanent housing?

    Yurt.


    Shipping container home.



    Monolithic dome.

    If I have to live in one, I'll take the monolithic dome. Otherwise, I'll take a real house.

    The Yurt for sure. Then I come out of my house wearing a Mongolian outfit.

    Having watched home improvement shows like This Old House, Hometime and several others I would pick a home made out of a shipping container. That shipping container home is the lousiest one I seen.


    These would be better examples of a shipping container home.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It was just a quick example I pulled up.

    One of the local universities is constructing a number of homes similar to this in a test solution for homeless/housing problems. You can fit 8 -10 of these comfortably on a 1/4 acre plot.

    How about converting a nuclear missile silo into a comfy home. Imagine your home theatre on the 1st floor basement, the bar on the 2nd, the home gym on the 3rd, the wine cellar on the 4th...

    I've seen those before and if you're single, they would be great.

    The dome and containers can be made as big as you like.
