Our Roundhouse in Fall — 2 Comments

  1. Love that Round House !

    I am thinking of building one with a larger diameter, 6 – 8 Meters and with a tiled roof.

    Can I incorporate an extra door and windows – would it compremise the strength of the structure?


    • Larger sizes are possible if they are built correctly. More window and door openings weaken the structure, but there are ways you can reinforce the design to make it stronger. Read up on bond beams, pinning, plaster mesh, buttresses, etc.
