Video clip.

Strange-looking on the outside, but like a nice, cozy home on the inside. (http://video.msn.com/video.aspx?mkt=en-US&brand=&vid=db5fd4d5-6a44-45f3-82a1-49b097fb4611 - broken link)

Yes it sits at Alamo Lake Road near the Chrysler proving grounds. They just finished repainting it over the last month or so.

They don't accept visitors and keep there gate locked.

I wouldn't think they'd have visitors, since the couple lives there! Who'd want some random tourists there checking the place out when you're trying to enjoy your morning coffee?

Default "egg" shaped house in Sedona

Speaking of ball shaped homes, there's a monolithic dome house with one dome that is egg shaped and several other domes. It is near or in Sedona on HWY 179. Check this website out for it. They have painted it like a rainbow:

The Monolithic Dome Xanadu (http://www.now.net/rainbow/monodome.htm - broken link)

The owners have petitioned Sedona to allow a rezoning so they can give tours of the home but the city refuses over and over again. So, my guess is, they painted it rainbow colors to attract even more traffic attention, thus causing traffic tie ups and pressure on the city to allow the rezoning. I hope they get it because it would be very educational for people (and KIDS!) to see the monolithic dome architecture and structure.

For now, drive by, stop and tie up traffic by taking pictures, and drive VERY slowly by there so that someday, we can all see the inside as well!

(No, I don't work for them, I just have four kids that have been begging me to show them the house because back when it was being built, my husband and I got lucky and were able to see the unfinished interior of some of the domes.)

Wow. I just watched the video about the golf ball shaped home and that was interesting! I never thought that would be so spacious just by looking at the outside!

The golfball house is in the middle of no where (no services near by) but can be seen from route 40.

Maybe that is all you need. I'd be bored to tears.
