  • Four white, concatenated domes perched above Greensprings Highway east of Ashland are not something cast off from a sci-fi movie.
    They're just the home of Marcia Sherry-Newby and Phil Newby, who love the feel of a circular space.
    "It's great to live in — very interesting acoustics, real positive energy from the circular shape, 16-foot ceiling and very energy-efficient. We love it," said Sherry-Newby, who lived in dome-shaped housing while studying at the University of California at Davis.
    Newby said he loves the shape and spaciousness, noting that the big downsides are leaks through windows — domes have no eaves — and the reluctance of lenders to finance an alternative structure.
