This home definitely gives off Buckminster Fuller vibes.

What is Buckminster Fuller?

Richard Buckminster Fuller was an engineer, architect, and futurist. He developed this design best known as the geodesic dome. This home is very much this design.  This home was built in 1982.

The home is 1360 square feet and it has all the same things as a normal home. James Stockwell originally owned the house.  If that name sounds familiar, James Stockdale is the brother to Forrest Stockdale and they worked in business together with Amarillo Air Conditioning and Sheet Metal Inc.  They both moved to Amarillo in the 50s after serving in the military.

The triangles for this home were built in the sheet metal shop.
