A small five-sided dome cabin

This five sided cabin has an interior loft. The floor is built above treated telephone poles. Each of the five sides is 8 foot by 8 foot.

In order to build this building legally without a building permit in California, this building was built above pre-cast piers and boulders. After completion this building was moved to different locations on the resort property.

as a tiny home over 20 years ago and now being utilized as a
bed and breakfast mushroom cabin dome in Aptos, California.
