I've been looking into homes like this. One day if i can buy some land i would love to build a small scale dwelling like this. The main priorities are, first that it be relativity inexpensive in material and construction costs. The second is that it can be heated and lit using a great deal less electricity than an ordinary "box" house. Can anyone tell me if a dome house would match these priorities?
In terms of heat and electricity I would love to utilize mostly natural lighting during daylight hours and would likely be utilizing a wood burning stove for me heating needs. Electricity would one day be provided by either solar or wind power or perhaps a combination of the two. Obviously a project such as this is going to require a great deal of time, effort, and money to accomplish which is why though money is not available as of now I would still like to get all my plans in order for when the day comes.
that's odd since when could u not use other post to like or dislike? since when was the top 3 the only ones u can like or dislike n especially since the only top 3 r trolling? well now u can like mine but wdf
I lived in one and I can tell you--roof covered in cedar is so freaking expensive...so we opted for the asphalt, but only half of the roof...It made the HOT...as you went upstairs the temp radically changed...I don't know why or if it was good or bad...
Talons X do you recomend it or not? Considering I live in on the San Andres Fault seems like a pretty good option...
In the 60 and 70's it seemed like the future but for some reason abandoned the whole concept... Most importantly for economic reasons... Any insight?
Domes are the most energy efficient shape since the air circulates rather than all the heat rising, but the asphalt shingles on the roof are destined for the landfill. Need to find a better roofing solution. Slate shingles? Ideally a metal standing seam roof if possible.
