  1. Quite an investment in both time and money. An off beat project that appears to be well executed.

  2. Reminds me of the old geodesic domes.All that spacs above you .Beautiful.

  3. Just finished building a quonset hut on two shipping containers in Trinity County, CA. Check it out… http://www.pairoducks.blogspot.com/2013/11/somewhere-in-northern-california.html

    As an instructor in building technology (here in BC) I love all forms of construction and I teach my students about everything from standard wood framing to concrete, metal, rammed earth, etc. Having said that I think it's really important to relate your building to the area you are in. There are usually good practical and aesthetic reasons for this and while I applaud the use of different materials I would love to have seen a little more wood used here (post and beam?) to get those nice big open spaces. Anyway, very creative but maybe the wrong site?
