Buiding Details/Specifications

3800 sq/ft
4 floors
32' diameter
15' below grade

The sphere is made of 3/4" emt metal tubing. The foundation is the lower portion of the sphere composed of stucco wire and 2" of  h2o proof modified stucco. The windows are Pella casements. The conservatory with the big half round window faces true south. The greenhouse faces SE.

The intent of my design was to make a lightweight and low cost sphere, that could sustain extreme loads. And I can say the design after 5 years is a complete sucess.
This simple steel and modified stucco ball can be fire proof, hurricane proof, earthquake proof and finally sunami proof, yes I can float one.

Estimated completion August 2009.
