These attractive and low maintenance homes are gaining popularity around the world. From 1970, Monolithic Domes can be found in every American state and in Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. Weather Resistant and highly cost and energy efficient, a geodesic dome might be the right home for you.
Monolithic technology is an extremely versatile green building technology – A Monolithic Dome uses about 50% less energy for heating and cooling than a same-size, conventionally constructed building. The dome can be built on any type of site: beaches, mountains, and even underground or underwater.
Many homeowners that live in hurricane and tornado areas are moving into Dome homes as these homes can handle high winds and storms. “ The high wind resistance for a Monolithic Dome is rated at 200 mph, allowing it to withstand virtually any hurricane and most tornadoes. Several Monolithic Domes were in the paths of the 2004 series of hurricanes that ravaged Florida, and all survived intact. The Dome is also very resistant to earthquake damage.”
