Geodesic Dome Houses
Inspired by the Dome hotel in Chile, we have been developing the idea of a self contained, 1 or 2 bedroom geodesic dome unit.
This particular cover design is opaque PVC with windows and door and a large, stargazing skylight. (other covers, including permanent concrete covers can also be provided) The skylight is covered with mosquito netting and has a removable PVC cover for rain. The windows are covered with transparent plastic and have roll down PVC cover as well.
Permanent foundations are not required for a geodesic dome home, which may qualify them as temporary dwellings thereby not requiring planning permission in many places. Contact your local planning office for detailed, local information.
Geodesic dome homes can be made to any size, the internal layout of the house can of course be built to your designs and ideas.
Inside there is a mezzanine bedroom, shower, toilet and kitchen. The rest of the unit is open plan. We are working on the size of 7m diameter, 4.2m tall. This has a floor area of 50m2. The floor and walls are wooden with the first floor frame being made out of metal.
