Living in the round gives new meaning to the expression, "I feel like I'm running around in circles." Seriously though, people have been living in round abodes for thousands of years. Those who sell round homes will tell you they are quite durable, wind resistant, and functional and, in many ways, better than traditional, square homes. This one, without many windows, resembles the cloth and felt yurts of the Mongolian steppes. If there is ever an open-house at this residence at 2416 Walker Avenue, we'll be first in line. We'd love to see how they slice the pie!
We've featured the round building on Holden here and Greensboro's Lustron homes, here and here. If you have an interesting home in your neighborhood, please let us know. We love to explore the different ways that Greensboro residents live.
