A friend sent me an email about the TX silo house, so I just googled it, and found the domob site. Have no clue what it stands for, but found it really interesting! Every farm and ranch in our area has those silos, and what a great way to recycle them. I wonder how hard they are to insulate? And do you suppose they echo?
We have one of the smaller silos on our property and my hubby has talked about doing that for years, but I know we won't ever do it (he can't handle it health wise now). I would think as long as you insulated well, that it wouldn't echo.
Gosh, that would take all the fun out of it for the grandkids, lol! I am seriously very impressed tho, I really never would have thought of doing that with an old silo. Am going to have to show pix of this to the family, as they have silos. Then when the kids are driving you nuts, you can send them outside to the silo to live. ;-)
Saw one made from 3 short silos on my way to a lodge in the White Mountains here in AZ; I think it was outside of Show Low. Since the elevation is over 7500', it must be well insulated to handle the cold mountain winters.
