ROUND HOUSE PLANS
Round house plans do cost a little more to build, considering that standard construction typically runs in straight lines, using straight boards. Today we have products that make the transition much easier, such as Flex-C, which is a flexible top and bottom plate. Round or curved walls create an illusion of space making a small house seem much larger. Glass or windows may be standard units, but the width will be smaller in order to set the frame inside of the curve.
Description: 10 meters (33’) diameter is the maximum size of a round earthbag structure before needing buttressing. This spacious design features a large kitchen and south-facing window wall for excellent solar gain.
AutoCAD generated drawings of this plan are now available at no extra cost through Dream Green Homes.
