Modern Monte-Silo House in Utah

Designed to accommodate a bachelor and his weekend guests, the Monte-Silo house in Utah looks like the perfect party house. Located close to Provo River and surrounded by an amazing scenery, it links two corrugated-metal grain silos that adds to its uniqueness. Warm in winter and cool in summer, the metal house proves interesting from an eco-friendly angle. With a southern exposure that adds natural daylight and maximizes the solar heat, the house also features an electric mesh embedded into the floor as backup . As for the interior, we’re sold on the “bed in a box” concept where you can rest after a long day with the buds.  – Via

    Hey I absolutely love this idea for a house. I live up here in Canada and just love this idea because for thing you’d never have to replace shingles or replace your tin rooves in my families case. I’m just alittle curious about winter and insulating it,
