Styrofoam Is Where The Heart Is

Styrofoam homes.

Now, that’s not bringing to me visions of a safe habitiat for me and mine.

Japan Dome House Co., Ltd. thinks they’re the future!

Constructed of 7-inch-thick 100% expanded polystyrene foam modules, the company says that they don’t have the maintenance problems of wood or metal structures, and they are “highly resistant” to earthquakes, fires, and typhoons.

Gotta admit tho; there’s a definite Mos Eisley vibe about the 480 domes at Aso Farm Land resort village in Kyushu.

They do, however, look quite comfy and roomy inside :0)
