The dome home of Buckminster Fuller and Anne Hewitt Fuller in Carbondale, Illinois, is now being restored. The only dome in which the Fullers actually lived, it took less than a day to build: seven hours from start to finish.

    I like the curved bookcase. Do you know how long the Fullers made this their primary home?

    They lived there from 1960-71, at least part-time. More info here:
