Makes me wonder why we aren't going this route faster. Most people 'dont like these dome homes' because they look "odd". I'd take peace of mind,
safety and life over 'looks' any day. Do read on. It's quite interesting. I have links too
Dome homes (I just found out about them last night) are tornado proof, fire proof (in places where fires break out, forest, etc), earthquake proof,
emp proof (with the right components installed into the dome), weapon projectile proof, termite, rot, flooding, mold proof. They are very green too,
require super little upkeep and maintenance; slashes bills nearly 3/4, keeps warm air in in winter and cool in in summer.
You can have levels, 2 story, 3 story, they can be small to mega huge (Think churches, schools, sports places), you can put in inground pools indoors,
basements, you can devote one to growing food, flowers, etc., livestock.....
You can even have them connected to make bigger homes! Garages, game room, one of the bigger sized ones has a freakin' built in in ground infinity spa
These things last centuries, not decades like the usual square homes. Think Panthnon in Rome. Domed, been around for centuries now, still going
strong. Needs upkeep here and there but nothing like the usually built things, right? *nudges you* right????
With all these positives, I'm stumped why folk prefer to rebuild regular normal 'what we're used to seeing' homes after floods, quakes, tornados, pay
extra for termite proofing, fire and water damage, etc, annnnnd struggle to pay bills for electric etc when it seems that these dome houses are nearly
eliminating all those issues. The smaller ones are kinda cute, the bigger ones are awesome. Here are some floor plans and dimensions of most all of
the models. The wee ones are good for a single person but they definitely go up from there in family size, offerings, etc.
Seriously, take time to check over this site and all its information. When I first saw them I was laughing "Like I want to live like a Martian/Jetsons
lol no'. And then i really READ and saw all the positives and benefits. You know? It seems worthwhile to get one, a smaller one, build on as I go and
know that I - and my son's future kids and their future kids if they all wanted to live there after my death - will have a safe long life because of
I kinda dig em, to be honest. They're very doable in too many ways. So many wins in the immediate and way down the road spans of time. FIgured I'd
share with all of you.
Edit to add this link to a pic of a dome as the sole survivor in this area from the Moore, Oklahome f5 Tornado.
It's the only house/shelter standing. Pics speak loudly, don't they, just?
