I LOVE SILO HOMES!!! Prefab vacation house in Woodland, Utah: "It was designed by Gigaplex Architects and is constructed from two metal grain silos, joined together to create one very cool 1,800 square foot house. The circular exterior creates circular rooms inside, and, like many modular homes, the silo house is extremely energy efficient." #prefab

Bug-Out house idea - Silo houses may seem like a strange concept, but they're more common than you may realize. The design firm Gigaplex converted this silo in Utah into a house.

Grain Silo Houses Grain bin houses and storage buildings are constructed from round metal grain bins. After the bins are in place, they require virtually no maintenance. http://www.motherearthnews.com/diy/buildings/grain-bins-z10m0gri.aspx
On thousands of farms across the continent, round metal grain bins (called “grain silos” in some regions) are standing empty or being torn down and sold for scrap because they’re no longer in use. Architects and builders have started to use these durable, inexpensive structures to construct grain bin homes, storage buildings, offices and barns. After the bin is in place, it requires virtually no maintenance.

Quaker Square Inn, Akron, Ohio: At the Quaker Square Inn, guests stay in a former oat silo. And not just any oats: Quaker Oats. Quaker Square Inn, with its 65 perfectly circular rooms -- it makes arranging furniture a bit difficult -- deserves credit for taking something as unexciting as a huddle of grain silos and converting it into something offbeat.

The city of Helsinki tapped Madrid-based Lighting Design Collective (LDC) to convert a once-used oil silo into an interactive light installation called Silo 468 to commemorate Helsinki being the World Design Capital of 2012. To mark such occasion, the silo’s walls were perforated with 2,012 holes that display a mesmerizing light show in Helsinki’s Kruunuvuorenranta district.
