Domespace is a rotating wooden house. The design brings numerous benefits. For example, the shape makes it resistant to cyclonic winds and it was built over an elastomeric belt which cushions vibrations and this also allows the house to withstand earthquakes of up to 8 on the Richter scale. This UFO-like house also makes the most of passive solar energy and it can rotate to follow the sun.{found on gizmag}.

The Inn Place by Kevin McGuckin Concrete domes are strong, highly resistant to damage by earthquake, lightning, hurricane, and wind. FEMA rates this type of construction as ‘near-absolute protection’ from F5 tornadoes and Category 5 Hurricanes.

I really like the arch over the door and the built in skylights and then the built in benches and planters outside.  The windows in the bedroom are pretty cool too
