Silo Living

By Berit Griffin, Marvin Windows September 3, 2009

monte-silo-house-1Have you ever dreamed of having a tower in your house? What if your whole house was a tower? One homeowner in Utah built a circular house that looks like a silo. Instead of storing grain, two circular metal structures house a cool modern interior.

Located near the Provo River, the house serves as a getaway for a bachelor and his friends. It is environmentally friendly, with a southern exposure to get the maximum amount of light and the metal exterior helps keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

The interior seems to draw occupants in with its gently curving structure. One of the most interesting rooms is the bedroom with beds built right into the wall. It saves space and looks great.

Surrounded by a beautiful landscape, this silo fits right in. What a great place to relax and enjoy life!
