A postcard dating from about 1910 shows a round house in Rixensart, Belgium -
This very unusual house has since been torn down, unfortunately.
I am going to comment on your site in general. I hope that is okay.
It is an interesting and focused niche you have here. These roundies are rare beasts. I am more familiar with houses that have large round elements, like a turret or a corner porch. I find that any roundedness seems to make a house more interesting. Not always more beautiful, but more interesting.
My highschool was built on the site of two sixteen-sided barns built by George Washington. One has been recreated at Mount Vernon. Perhaps you can get a picture of it. It was rounded so that a horse could march around in circle threshing wheat.
I have a website dedicated to houses at http://www.house-design-coffee.com . Feel free to drop in and chat.
I just remembered. I put up a page on my brother’s octagonal log cabin. You might want to borrow a pic.

thanks, your website is very cool; i particularly liked the houses in fiction section.
