In response to Hey..! This was a french design, built somewhere around Brest (Brittany) and sold all over the country..!
Living here in California I had previously looked at purchasing from a French company but that design is considerablly different from SUNSPACE in terms of ceiling heights , materials used and in two other important areas - the first being meeting North American building codes which at the time of my enquiry to them they were unable and unwilling to accomplish and secondly in pricing as they were 40% more in cost. There is also a rotating home builder down from me in San Diego who only wants to build 10,000 plus square feet and also wants to charge a cool 1/4 million up front in consulting fees to direct you to where you can purchase the parts.
Here in the USA, I will stick with my dream rotating home through a North American builder at a reasonable cost!
