Thanks for posting. I have driven past it and wondered about it.

I read an article about those things; some Dane or Norwegian fellow designed them. Not too many here in America.

some history on the Hunt county UFO

that was placed there over on that property 40 years ago and at one time somebody actually lived in it

we stopped and asked to see it then the people were happy to show it off even had some weired furnishings

it been painted several times as you can see it was originally bright turquoise

it was quite "mod" when it was placed there

a smaller version was sold to schools and churches as a play house

one was installed at Dan Rogers elementary in Dallas for about 30 years

There's a modern, more livable version:
Monolithic Dome Institute

In Italy, Texas (30 miles or so south of Dallas on I-35E), there's a factory where they make forms for Monolithic Dome houses. They look like the Quinlan UFO house, except without the legs. The factory itself is a giant caterpillar made from several domes joined together, and the complex includes several examples of dome homes, some open for tours, some abandoned but left in place for testing purposes.



Nearby, if it hasn't been torn down yet, was Starship Pegasus, a pizza parlor and game room shaped like a Star Trek starship, with a flatter-than-usual dome and warp nacelles added to the back. It aspired to be part of a science-oriented park featuring all the planets, in Monolithic Dome form. Unfortunately, they closed a year or so ago. It would be a tricky place to explore, though -- I hear a massive truck stop just went in next door.

I hope you guys got a load of the thread on the abandoned townhouses in Taiwan.

That UFO reminds me of a really silly yurt. My friend had a wild yurt in the woods near Seattle with hardwood flooring and a nice skylight/window type deal.

A pig? That's all ya got?

The Goose, in Hazard, KY (one Z for the real town, not two ZZs for the fictional county), has been a community fixture since 1940.



The building isn't in commercial use any more, but it's well-maintained. But if you decide to make a pilgrimage to eastern Kentucky, take the side roads. You can find entire abandoned cities under the kudzu.

Well, I dig it. It outstyles a doublewide!
