I’ve men­tioned this in blog posts before, but I fell in love with Xanadu homes (bub­ble look­ing shot­crete-sty­ro­foam homes that were futur­is­tic) that were in tourist traps like Gatlin­burg, the Dells and Florida.

Well, I always want­ed one when I grow up…and I found a place that actu­al­ly builds new­er updat­ed ver­sions that are much bet­ter (Mono­lith­ic Domes)

I have a book of their sam­ple floor plans and Amy and I took one and recre­at­ed it with our own wish list. I thought I had lost that plan when I had a dri­ve crash…but low and behold, I found it a few days ago.

Our dream is to take the upstairs and then divide the bath­rooms when the kids all move out (so there is 4 rooms and 4 bath­rooms upstairs) and turn it into a Futur­is­tic Bed & break­fast, decked out with tech…for those peo­ple who need to get away…yet not real­ly get away…ya know…people like me.

So, I am shar­ing it for your view­ing plea­sure. (Click to embiggen)

  1. After a close call with a tor­na­do (liv­ing in tor­na­do val­ley) my hus­band and I are look­ing into mono­lith­ic homes. I love your floor plan!! We have 7 chil­dren, we home­school, and I have a home busi­ness. So lots of room needs. Would love to know the diam­e­ter of that floor plan. Thanks in advance 🙂

    1. Hon­est­ly, I can’t remem­ber. I pulled a floor plan from one of their books, and then mas­sive­ly mod­i­fied it, but did­n’t pay real close atten­tion to actu­al mea­sure­ments. So I need to com­plete­ly redo it and be more accurate.
