Round Houses Not Just For Trains Anymore
Deltec's round house is highly wind resistant with less exterior surface than a square building of the same sq. footage, according to the Asheville, N.C., company. This helps to cut energy and heating costs in half, compared to a conventional square house, the company says.
The design is also more versatile than a conventional square house, fitting virtually any size or shaped lot or location, the company adds.
Components, such as half scissors truss radial roof, pre-sided walls, double headers on wall panels, I-joist floor beams, floor panels, etc., are all pre-cut to go together easily.
The houses can be built up to three levels high and conventional square or rectangular additions can be added.
Models range from 328 to 2,070 sq. ft. per level.
Shell prices start at $15 per sq. ft.
Free brochure available. Catalog $12 or $19.95 with video.
