Dome in the Maryland Woods

Little Big House

open design = little big house

The geodesic dome is only about 1,200 square feet, but my experience living in it is that it does not feel like a small house. 

First of all, it’s not a small structure, as the volume of enclosed space – what you can see above you, beneath you, and all around you - is 24,000 cubic feet. That’s the same as living space with 8 foot ceilings and 3,000 square feet of floor space. Fine for humming birds, you might think, but I can’t walk around in all those cubic feet. I understand that way of looking at things, but this space is meant to appeal to those of us who don’t need 3,000 square feet of floor space, but feel that we do indeed need the feeling of space and airiness that you get from a 30-foot ceiling. And you are in the woods, and everywhere you see that you are in the woods, and you feel part of it. It gives a bit of a feeling that you are camping out - but for a tent, it's huge, and luxuriously comfortable.

the kitchen

The kitchen feels big to me. There are lots of shelves and cabinets for pantry space. Look at the great big marble table – lots and lots of working space.

And the open design allows plenty of hanging-out room. That covers everything you need in a kitchen – storage space, food preparation working space, and space for yap yap yapping with your friends and family.
