Why domes make the best off-grid shelters

Geodome shelters are structurally sound and have an inherent capacity to withstand nature’s extremes such as, snow, high-winds and earthquakes. Dome studies, also, reveal a 30% uptick in energy efficiency over comparable size conventional homes. Prefab domes are suited to all types of terrains and fully deployable  – and, they can be erected in hours with a couple of friends using universal tools.  

When it comes to green-building construction, ecoliving geodome shelters solve a number of economic and environmental impact challenges that traditional building materials and methods simply can’t address. Considered temporary shelters, meaning that they can be taken down when no longer needed, portable geodomes often simplify permitting or even bypass many local building codes altogether.

More Living Space

Geodome shelters enclose the largest volume of interior space with the least amount of surface area. When comparing similar alternative building structures, a geodome’s expansive circular design lends additional head-room and breathing space – so, no one need suffer that claustrophobic feeling while being cooped up indoors due to inclement weather.
