I love these! A kid's clubhouse, a changing room off the pool, several for when the kids come home!

Veddy cool, indeed!

I saw these pictures a couple of months ago on a Russian site. I thought at the time, that was on of the neatest designs and craftsmanship I have seen in quite awhile.

Edie,
Thanks for bringing the sphere to our attention!
Cut the sphere around the middle and add a tubular center section, RV amenities and wheels and a really new egg would be born. Can you it chained on a logging truck?
Talk about an attention gatherer at a rally. There would have to be a tour charge and a door on both sides for looky-loo exitting(sp?) traffic.
At any rate, it's pretty spectacular just as it is designed. An amazing amount of designing and problem solving expertise were used in the conceptualization and execution of this unique structure.
We are impressed!
Kurt & Ann K.

After looking at it I thought it would be perfect for a frame styled after Cinderella's pumpkin coach. You'd have a real head turner then

I guess it'd have be squished on the sides or an 8' sphere.
