Buckminster Fuller home by rhoing

Buckminster Fuller home

Today we got a tour of the inside from the architect who is overseeing the restoration of the Fuller home in Carbondale. You get some sense of size and dimension from the double sliding doors. Now guess how many square feet of living space inside (if you dare)!

Today was a busy touring day with our friend Ellen:

Very cool looking structure! Love the color! I'd guess between 250 and 300 square feet of living area. Quite small!!

We all may be living in those soon enough.

@thewatersphotos Twelve-hundred! Yep, that's 1,200. Two bedrooms, one bath, kitchen and a spacious living room. There is even an upper level where Bucky had his office/work-space! Remember, a sphere is the geometric shape that minimizes surface area for a given volume, hence the motivation behind the geodesic dome itself: it minimizes material usage for a given space!

Much roomier than it appears to be.

@rhoing Wow! That is stunning! I never would have thought it was that big!
