hehe

icosidodekahedron is a weird word, even though I googled for it and found this.

Its greek so allow me to elaborate.

edra in greek means face, normal :)
icosi = 20
dodeka = 12

we use the words, icosahedron or dodekahedron.

There is no number composed of 20 and 12.
30 edres is triantahedron.
32 is triantadyo
The word icosidodekahedron makes some sense in terms of 32 edres, but there is no such word in greek.

Very cool image, lovely colours.

I just spent at least an hour on your site looking at the constuction pics of your dome house. Wow! well documented. Looked like you had fun building it.

I work as an architectural designer and one day in the far future I would love to build a house for myself like you did. Well, not a dome, but built by me.

Thanks, Tzan. We're just about to finish it up. We're down to doing the baseboards and detail work. It's been a long time, but we did a lot of the work ourselves.
