I once wrote about Buckminster Fuller and his concept of the geodesic home for a magazine called Mental Floss. The Fuller piece was part of a larger story about housing ideas that never truly caught on. The thing is, a geodesic dome is actually a pretty good thing in which to live. They’re awfully sturdy, and they’re quite energy efficient.
If you live in the Chicago area and you’ve wanted to reside in a geodesic dome, you’re in luck. There’s one for sale now in Carol Stream.
Listed by agent Tim Binning, the broker/owner of RE/MAX All Pro in Bloomingdale, the two-story home features five bedrooms and 3.1 bathrooms. It also boasts a new ceramic counter and backsplash in the kitchen. Of course, it’s also a geodesic dome, which is obviously it’s most interesting feature.
The home retails for $269,800. And you can get all the details on it here
