Dome Features & Services

Design Advantages – Manufactured in the USA from high-strength galvanized steel, ecoliving geodesic-engineered domes are known for their portability and ease of set-up. Considered semi-permanent structures, they can be taken down or relocated at any time. That said, did you know that another cool thing about prefab dome kits is that they can be retrofitted to create permanent structures, as well?

Yet, another cool thing about domes is their energy-efficiency and ability to withstand nature’s extremes. Geodesic domes have proven to be the only structure left standing in the aftermath of a hurricane or earthquake. Prefab geodome kits are the preferred choice when it comes to building in remote wilderness areas subject to high-winds, hot deserts or tropical climates – and, let’s not forget winter snow loads.  

Dome Life Design

Dome life design is conducive to ecoliving in a harmonious structure. Why is this? Because the harmonic architecture of domes is an ancient science based on Sacred Geometry.

Familiarizing yourself with the energetic qualities of domes helps you understand that each dome size produces a resonant field that’s unique to that structure. The resonant field of a 24-ft. dome creates a structure that supports one’s innermost being – especially, when it comes the qualities of the heart.

Portable 24-ft. Event Domes

The first thing to know about geodesic-engineered Event Domes is the fact that people love that they can feel safe knowing their event structure will hold up during unpredictable weather. These portable, tent-like structures lend themselves to a wide variety of functional uses for the event industry – as well as, for smaller gatherings like weddings.
