Pretty house. Hubby took a look at the truss system, and shook his head. said the loading of the trusses was wrong and will be problematic down the road, even without snow load.

There is what I think is a round cobb house a few miles from us. It reminds me of a large mushroom.

I dunno, according to what he says, he built this 30 or so years ago, doesn't look like he's had any troubles yet? I've lived in a LOT of newer houses that had leak troubles

That's what I was thinking....has lasted this long and looks like he just built it. Pretty good build for an IT guy who never built anything before.
