Want to live in a bubble? The CasaBubble lets you commune with nature without the rain, mosquitoes and pollen. A fan keeps the bubble inflated and maintains air flow. An airlock vestibule lets you come and go without deflating it.

Bubble rooms range from about 11 feet to 26 feet in diameter and $7,000 to $12,000 in price. They come in several configurations from the CristalBubble, a simple transparent globe, to the GrandLodge, a series of spherical rooms.

You can join bubbles together, furnish with inflatables, even bring in a hot tub.
