FEATURED Dome Homes

IN CT

Dome-shaped homes tend to look either really good or really bad. Most dome homes are designed with a single, large dome, which is then separated into many different rooms inside. That makes the most optimal use of the materials, surrounding the most square feet for the least amount of materials. Building a dome property, the idea of creating a dome for each room sounds exciting. This style of dome home could be quite affordable if the domes were mass-produced out of lightweight insulation, like as paper crete or expanded polystyrene (preferably reused), then hauled into place, attached, and stuccoed over with cement. Dome Housing Construction Methods
Monolithic Domes
Monolithic dome construction makes use of concrete, rebar, and spray insulation, often with an oversize balloon as a form. Monolithic domes are naturally strong, and resistant to earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, and even bombs, as was discovered in World War II. The air forms are usually sprayed internally with a seamless coating of polyurethane insulation. A grid of reinforcing rebar is put up inside of that, and sprayed with a light layer of shot crete to make a shelter that is extremely energy efficient and highly resilient to natural or man-made disasters. The energy costs for a typical monolithic dome home is about 10% of the bill for a conventional house of similar size.
Earthbag Domes
Earthbags are an incredibly adaptive material, enabling the builder to create any form - from conventional straight-walled houses to round domes, to freeform walls. Earthbag construction is ideal for hotter climates, with lots of thermal size to moderate house temperatures between day and night.
Earthship Tire Domes
With earthship technology it is possible to build houses of various shapes and sizes, including domes, from old tires packed full of soil. These houses are often bermed into the earth on three sides to shield them from the weather, and occasionally the top is covered over with earth as well. Dome structures have demonstrated impressively resiliant against earthquakes, tornadoes--even dropping bombs. While dome homes might not fit into every neighbourhood, the fact is that if all houses were built like monolithic dome homes, then we would have very nearly reached a sustainable (energy- and resource-efficient) civilization already. While dome houses may be odd-looking to some people, to a increasing set of home buyers, they are now the only way to go. Dome property do sell. They sell just like traditional box houses. The real estate saying - "Location, location - and then selling price for the community" is just as fitting. However, acquiring financing for a home like this, as well as pricing it for reselling, can be difficult. The homes attract a group that is willing to stretch their imaginations as to what a home looks like, and that implies that those with dome homes have a specialised audience to sell to. That may be one of the causes that builders are mostly seeing people buying them as secondary homes that they plan to live in throughout their lives, and can for the most part finance themselves.
