A Silo House


Have you ever heard of or seen a silo house? Well, I'm about to show you...



 Would you be remotely interested in living in a round home?



I like the back splash. I'm seeing more and more of this rustic look in kitchens.


What sweet little nooks for reading or sleeping.


A curvy bathroom.


I kind of like it. But then, the above photo kind of looks like a space craft that has landed in a field.

  1. Very cute, but I think I would get a little claustrophobic in one of those bedrooms!

  2. I always love seeing old structures being repurposed, but I'm not sure that this is my cup of tea. :)

  3. Very nice! Lots of light and no wasted space. Great post!

  4. I think these are great! My grandmother lives in a round, rock house. It does look like a space ship at Christmas time, because she opts for a single strand of white lights around the first story... it looks like it is about to take off. Haha! But, when you're inside, you really don't notice the roundness.

  5. I am not sure if I would like to live in one but it might be fun for a vacation.

  6. No. I am not sure what it is about it I do not like...maybe the curved walls. Now if it was set on the beach for a weekend trip that would be fine.

  7. We have a few of them in my area of Manitoba (Canada). One guy built his first now he manufactures them. I think the rain on the metal roof would bug me after awhile.

  8. naw-- this one just doesn't appeal to me -inside or out..

    loved that lil storage building turned backyard retreat , it was amazing ,

  9. I enjoyed looking at this, but I don't think I would be interested in living in one. I prefer the tiny little houses that you have shown.

  10. I prefer cozy little cottages myself. This round house is not my cup of tea...

  11. I live in horse country, and there are a few very cool round barns in the countryside. I guess the horses don't mind living in them! Not sure I'd want to -- seems like it might be hard to hang up a picture!

  12. I'd feel like a square peg in a round home!

  14. Very cool. High end. I would like it but could never afford something that nice. I think the backsplash looks industrial. I really like the look. I like a combo of rustic and industrial and glitz. I want a sparkly chandy for the dining room. You might enjoy reading my Fences post from last week. I shared an interesting house too. Have a wonderful Wednesday. XXOO

  16. Hi Brenda,
    While this is cool and I bet very energy efficient it is too modern for me. Love the idea but for me I need the traditional cottage feel. I will be excited to have you up in Spotlight this Saturday. Thanks again for doing Spotlight. Have a great rest of the week.

  17. Nah..I'd probably get dizzy going around in circles..lol..

  18. I think it may be good for someone that likes industrial, modern décor. It would sure make me nervous to be inside it during a lighting storm.

  19. There is one near us, it is several granaries put together, I like it. It is a cool use for a building that is not being used for its original use. In Wyoming there were actual silos that were made of some kind of shaped ceramic tiles, I thought a house could be make of one of those.

  20. There is another near us, a smaller grainary that someone has made into a pit greenhouse. On the south side they built out a glass addition that is a few steps down from the grainary, the grainary is used as a potting shed, pretty cool. We have three, but they just hold grain.

  21. I love it! The windows and balcony are pretty nice. Wonder how hot that gets inside when it is 100+ outside?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love it. Maybe I wouldn't always be hitting my hip on the corners of counter tops! Without more photos it's hard to tell if that living room (?) in the first photo is as stark as it seems, but I could imagine hanging industrial chandeliers in this one. Window shades might be a problem.......

    I picture a curved MCM sofa. I already have the round glass topped coffee table in my workshop. Is that the garage in back? Maybe with living space above? It would make a great B&B, too. So many people in the world live in round houses, from the yurts of the Mongolians to the mud/straw huts of Africa and the igloos of the Inuit. Round is so soothing and I imagine it would reduce stress for some people. I'd be happy to give it a try. If it doesn't work, I could always turn it into an art museum!

  23. It is fascinating! I think the curved rooms look well designed.......very modern and stylish.
    Happy week, Brenda.

  24. I like it. It reminds me of living in a lighthouse.

  25. Brenda,
    I must tell you-growing up we had several Silo's on the farm, because we grew not only potatoes but wheat. Well, these Silos would be full throughout the Fall and Winter and then the wheat would be sold in the Spring when the prices went up. One Summer we had several family member come visit from North Carolina and our sweet red brick house was not big enough for everyone. So, Mom and Dad rented some cots and the three of us slept in the Silo for several nights. It wasn't bad-but it did feel odd! Of course it was not decorated nor did it have windows...

  26. I love this! The reading nooks are awesome.

  27. Why not?? I've seen lots of buildings and industrial structures turned into homes- gas station, school houses, churches, warehouses; I say a silo would be cool!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I LOVE the 180 degree balcony but it would need to be 360 for me, as I love being outdoors. It would be cool to see more metal finishes or decor inside playing off the surface of the exterior. Since it is inspring ideas for me, I definitely could enjoy living "round"! I've always thought a yurt is a great living space, too. Imagine the sound of rain on that surface. Ahhhh.....I am dreaming.

  29. It's a really interesting house, but I'm afraid it's very difficult to use old furniture in a round house.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've wanted to use one of these as a cabin for so long, but my guy's not going for it! I would decorate it more "flea market" style.
