Want a spacious dome home for about $40,000.
How can this be done? With EconOdome kits and your labor.
The Basic 2x4 EconOdome frame kit used to build this home costs $8,250.
If you wish, you may build this home instead with the
labor-saving "all 2x4" T-Beam EconOdome frame kit costing $13,600.
To create two complete floor levels inside you need a riser wall kit.
The five feet high 2x4 riser wall frame kit costs $1,750.
All other materials may be purchased locally.
Optionally, you may wish to order: pre-cut insulated triangles.
The 38.5' above dome will have 2,000 sf on two floor levels.
Cost to completely enclose & weather proof about $20,000.
Cost to complete the interior about another $20,000.
A gas water heater and an aquarium pump are used to heat the floor.
Riser walls + window & door frames are put together at the factory.
The building was framed up to ten feet high in just one hour.
The rest of the boards (struts) were put up one at a time.
It started raining in the afternoon so three people
finished putting the dome framework together the next morning.
Triangle panels made of rigid insulation and DensDeck cover the dome.
Screws with large washers are used to install the triangle panels.
The seams and washers are covered with cloth saturated with resins.
More waterproofing is applied to the surface with paint rollers.
When the waterproofing is thick enough the dome home will not leak.

This southwest style dome home in New Mexico includes a large sunroom between the house and garage.
This home also features custom interior woodwork and three floor levels above the walk-out basement level.
Eric and Buena Kaylor lived in the camper while their home was under construction.

This dome home under construction in New Mexico is clad entirely with DensDeck Prime Roof Board.
One inch thick R-6.5 insulation board was glued to the back side of the DensDeck sheeting prior to installation.
The exterior is then sealed using a proven commercial roof sealing method called "the saturated seal".
The surface has been proven to be both puncture and fire resistant per Underwriters Laboratories.
This sealing method and other similar proven methods are most often used to
waterproof large and expensive commercial buildings such as hotels and office buildings.
Commercial waterproofing systems undergo rigorous independent testing.
Many commercial waterproofing sysems work well on EconOdome buildings.
And commercial waterproofing sysems allow for the installation of
rigid insulation sheeting on the exterior of the building.
This feature helps to make a home built with EconOdome kits both
more energy efficient and also more storm tolerant. For instance:
A 3 bedroom 30' EconOdome home built this summer above the Arctic Circle in Barrow, Alaska
was clad with a combination of rigid insulation sheeting, DensDeck, and
glued-on lapping pre-cut triangles made with 90 mil EcoWhite EPDM by Firestone.
Most of the material to build this ten-sided Arctic home was pre-cut and/or pre-assembled.
Materials to build this dome home upon pilings extending into the frozen Arctic tundra
were floated to Barrow, Alaska on a barge during the summer of 2012.

The lapping white rubber shingles were glued onto the dome surface with a contact glue.
A rubbery and very sticky seam tape glues the seams at the laps.
EcoWhite EPDM has been professionally tested at -50degree F and 100mph winds.

This 38.5' dia. 2-Story Dome Home is being
built with a 2x6 Basic EconOdome frame kit.
The cupola on top helps with natural ventilation.
The sunroom will help with passive solar heating.
A large 38.5' diameter greenhouse stays warm inside year around
by transfering heat from the top of the dome to the earth under the dome.
The EconOdome home design begins with the end in mind.
