Dome-shaped homes and houses on cliffs falling sheer to the sea, that’s how you can enjoy incredible living experiences

Talking about dome-shaped homes, we said that they are highly resistant to the ravages of extreme natural events (read Living in a monolithic dome helps you survive natural disasters for further information). Now we would like to make quite clear that they can also be environmentally-friendly buildings and not only earthquake-proof homes. In New Paltz, N.Y., for example, there is an eco-friendly UFO-shaped home that sits on a turntable and spins to take advantage of sunlight. Large windows shaped like a wedge help light spread everywhere.

Do you know the story of the three little pigs? Well, the tale may have inspired “Green” construction projects implemented using very cheap and highly insulating pre-compressed straw bales that distribute dampness uniformly in the house while granting a high static resistance; on the contrary, they distribute it uniformly in the rooms. Straw-bale construction is developed in Austria, in Germany and in Spain, but also Italy is showing interest in this highly energy-efficient building method (Click on the following link to learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of straw-bale construction).

Another cool house can be found in Timber Cove, in California. Could you ever imagine of living in a house made of steel, stone, redwood and plexi-glass surrounded by crashing surf? The house is solidly anchored to rock and enjoys wonderful panoramic views of the Ocean, but it is subject to the spray from breaking waves.

Of course, it is a home suited for those who wish to enjoy an unusual living experience! Just as the house made of steel and glass boxes in the Sonoran Desert. This Desert Nomad House is equipped with light-sensitive window screens that descend or move up automatically according to sunlight in order to preserve a constant temperature in the interior and avoid an excessive heating inside.

Would living in a deconsecrated chapel upset you? Those who are interested in buying a former religious building to convert it in a comfortable home would certainly not agree with you. There is a large supply of this kind of properties in Italy and the UK. Restoration works would require high investments but the final charm is unquestionable. (Read the following article to find out more about living in former religious buildings and click on this link to increase your knowledge about former religious building for sale in Spain).
