A floorplan from a solar home in Vermont. I'm not quite sure about living in a round home, but I do like the compact layout of this wee housie. It's main missing bits are a solar greenhouse and a larder in my mind!
With glass over the courtyard, like an atrium. Maybe put some mirror tint on it so it doesn't become a magnifying glass during summer. It could be a year-round greenhouse! I would also add a glass door connecting each room to the courtyard.
