    More Alternative Houses: Treehouses & Bubbles Again
    last edited 2012/11/27 20:22 (*)

    Some more lightweight habitat approaches, some are looking nice but seem not practical, others might be good as inspiration and starting point to develop something actual working:

    Cocoon Tree

    The cocoon is 3m in diameter, and 120kg heavy, fixated by 12 points and ropes. It is rather conceptual work than real world application (e.g. missing rain gear). Pricing starts at USD 8,000. See more at .

    Bubble Dome

    Air filled walls with transparent PVC, apprx. 4m in diameter, pricing about USD 12,000. Read more at Attrap'Reves Bubble Hotel, France and .

    More inflatable domes, various sources:

    Domes have a beautiful shape to live in, especially when one was conditioned in square buildings; yet, the domes have one major disadvantage: all surface is a roof and therefore most of the times requires to provide 100% water seal and be still breathable. In this sense, circular habitats like a yurt provides some of the feature, yet, have minimal roof like square-based buildings.
