Silo House



An anonymous submitter to Recyclart needed to expand her log cabin home. S/he decided that an old grain silo would be just the right structure to attach to the house:

Radiant floor heating. stamped and stained concrete floor, spray foam insulation, 7 windows and soon plaster walls along with a 6?x6? living wall. After finding a silo on a near by farm we moved it over to our house, cut out one wall and attached it to the side of our house for a much needed dining room.


You can see a large interior photo at the link.

Not sure if it's a false positive or not, but Sophos v10 said:

These are semi-common in rural areas because they are very easy to put together with skilled labor, locking together from big modular pieces into a waterproof structure that's relatively inexpensive. On my grandparents' farm there one made with two silos, a single one like in this picture, and then a taller one containing two stories, with a short interconnect that acts as a "mud room" or entrance between the two. It's very beautiful on the inside.
