The Longhouse is an easily designed component home that utilizes the same prefab technologies as the Dream Dome, but is built with straight sides. This gives it a "barn-like" appearance, and is likely to be one of the most spacious and comfortable homes you will ever occupy.
As you can see, the walls flow up and over the top, allowing wind and rain to move freely. It can be designed in any length based on multiples of 8 feet, and can be extended with a half-dome on one end, as shown below, or a half dome could be added to both ends.
The one shown here encompasses almost 1550 square feet on the first floor, with a partial second floor that adds another 900 square feet, leaving the space over the front living room open all the way to under-roof, for a Great Room effect.
This house has three bedrooms, including the Master Bedroom with Master Bath, on the second floor, along with an extra bathroom for the other occupants. A third bathroom is on the ground floor, and is accompanied by a large kitchen and utility/laundry room, a pantry, a formal dining room and spacious living room. The full width front porch is ideal for sitting out on nice summer evenings.
The Longhouse can be built in any length greater than 24 feet, based on a multiple of 8 feet, and is always 30 feet wide. Each panel on every level of the straight section is 8 feet long, so you can choose to have a home that is anywhere from our minimum 24 feet long to 80 feet long or even more. The one described below is based on the one shown on our Longhouse page.
