RIVERTON — Homeowners who like to think outside the box may want to head to the Riverton area Saturday to check out Steve and Sheila Sullivan's residence, a 47-foot diameter monolithic dome made of concrete.

The 6424 Barlow Road address is one of 33 domes across the country that are part of the Fall Dome Home Tour. People can tour the unusual house Saturday and learn about some of the advantages to living in a concrete dome.
