Hillside abodes


The slope of South Mountain was home to a real mix of housing structures from very large and luxurious homes to modest houses to the unique.  The geo-dome above is one of the unique ones.  These types of houses are supposed to be environmentally friendly but, just between you and me, I don't find them very attractive.


I also found this small but tall house.  This one is certainly an unusual shape.  It has a perfect location to take advantage of the views of the city but there don't seem to be any windows big enough to do that very well.

I have a new photo up on Sharon's Sojourns today.  Fashionable architecture is the subject this time.

A but unusual it is that geo-dome house.

What concerned the first Photo, I agree with you Sharon, very unusual and not much attractive.
The 2nd gives me the idea of a small castle :-)

Variety is the spice of life.

I much prefer the Southwest style you featured yesterday but I would love to try living in the geo-dome for a little while.

I'm drawn to this square one. But I agree about the viewing.

The top one looks like it may have been modelled on the Apollo 13 landing craft!

Original houses' shapes don't always go well with the practical and confortable side of things.

Both of these houses seem not to take advantage of the views that are available from part way up the slope of South Mountain.

These two are very unusual and I like them both. There is a geo-dome house in Mayer that is quite lovely.

They're both amazing! The one on top looks like Sci Fi with a rustic look, but the second one is my favourite. Great finds, Sharon.

Can you imagine the view from the roof though, fabulous!

P.s. would love to see inside the dome :)

Two most interesting structures. I don't much care for geo-dome home houses, either. They tend to go round and round inside and you never get anywhere! :)

Re the 2nd house: Maybe they have a little patio on top of the house where they can sit and take in the view at night; or hide from the coyotes.

I remember the second one. Bet they have great views.

How about I hold out for the one you showed yesterday?
