    There is a round barn in our area. I remember as a little kid, every time we drove past it my Dad would point it out and tell us "that was the barn where all the cats went crazy"..............looking for a corner to pee in!!!

    We have a sort of round barn space to build on: a 45' dia. 10' concrete walkout basement foundation for a geodesic dome that was laid 5 years ago, and left unfiinsihed on top of which I'd like to construct a barn. It has 3 extensions of 2 or 4 feet as part of 3 of the 18' +/- walls I'm not sure how to incorporate into the floorplans. I have one family milk cow, and her calf so far and plan on having at least 3 more calves in the near future. Our hill faces north, so that's the walk-out part of the basement. [We live in a geodome about 100' from this structure.] The geodome has 10 sides, 5 about 8' and 5 about 18' long. Suggestions anyone?
