Geodesic dome protects cob house and family of 6 in Arctic Circle via Urban Organic Gardener

When you think about living in the Arctic Circle you often imagine a modern structure with modern facilities. Truth be told, architecture has a long history of keeping a good idea over the years. That is why this cob house under a geodesic dome is all you need in order to have a good life even in difficult circumstances. The house is hand-built by the Hjertefølgers family. The geodesic dome over it is glass-paned and provides a comfortable life as well as a good environment to grow their own food. Located on the island of Sandhornøya, in Norway, the 5 bedroom-home spans over 3 levels and is solar powered! Take a virtual tour of every room to get a glimpse into what it means to live this way. Watch the incredible story of the `Nature House`, how it was raised and how it is living in it now.
