Never mind mashed bloody potato??! Isn't the house cool? I would love that as a little tarot house in the middle of The Fields Of Sanctuary...surrounded by trees and rivers... where I could do readings for people.

Imagine trying to build something similar for yourself on a bit of water in/around the UK...!?


Although vast majority of small private boats on our waterways are themselves basically just floating plastic/fibre glass constructions...

Idea

Not cheap,  though...

Need to be well ventilated and aired out --  to remove noxious fumes and gases from the plastics --  before being inhabited;
Need to be fire-proofed and vermin-proofed (e.g. against birds and rodents..) --  because of the nature of the construction (many of those built during the 1960s, '70s and '80s had a concrete layer sprayed over the poly' shell --  that advert' doesn't say what their "fire retardant" is..).


And --  domes and polyhedral structures are actually a very inefficient use of space, because of sloping and curved walls  -->>  meaning a bigger 'footprint' compared to more traditional structures.

Expensive to heat, cool and maintain..


There are good reasons why such construction methods aren't more common or popular;  nor why they are seen in use as either "affordable" or "emergency" housing....       Dome houses made from expandable polystyrene  1399249160


While that advertising shows plenty of flexibility and versatility in the different variations and expansion possibilities --   I suspect that some of the industrial, agricultural and retail spaces they highlighted, as well as a couple of the larger sized houses,  won't be that cheap in reality  ?
