Thinking about an outer shell for my future house. Basically a wooden gothic arch frame insulated with ETFE cushions.

The idea is to get a useful volume between the outside and the heated living quarters. This would hopefully keep the temperatures above freezing at all times of the year without heating.

Some of the functions of the living quarters could be moved to this half-heated volume. One such example would be cooking.

The living quarters could thus be kept smaller and cheaper.

First time I see this material. Looks like milky plastic on the internet. You won't be able to see out?

Perhaps if you raise that dome up a level and place a cylinder below it and the cylinder is made of glass or clear plastic?

@JohanEmpa - ETFE is very transparent. It even lets most of the UV-spectrum through. I could have a lawn inside the outer shell.
