The Dome Home – Ultimate Protection for Surviving Storms and Natural Disaters

Dome Home is a Shelter for the Storm a Pre-Requisite for Survival

Weather systems throughout the state have come to be increasingly severe as well as more frequent over the last number of years. Your choice of circumstance of where you live you  could place you at risk of  tornadoes, cyclones, hurricanes, tropical storms, floods, and earthquakes. We’ve all seen news reports of unfortunate people living in susceptible parts of the world have their houses demolished by the forces.

It does not make sense to rebuild using the same old materials and building system because all the predictions are , storms are going to get much worse and more frequent.

Maybe we should all be thinking of the future about how well equipped our homes are in relation to the looming danders.

A Dome Shell Structure is One Method of Construction That Survives Storms

Dome shaped structures have stood the test of time because of their inherent strength. Using innovative systems, materials and methods it is possible to build beautiful monolithic shell structures like the dome home below.

One of the oldest surviving intact structures in the world in the Panthoen dome in Rome that no invading army has succeeded in tearing down for well over 2000 years

When it Comes to Dome Homes They Look Fascinating, Futuristic and Strange

The beautiful elegant lines of a dome look so simple yet take so much in refined design and process to achieve  those kind of flowing lines. Dome shapes need a mold of some kind and a mold needs a plug and all these elements have to be millimetre accurate to cast elements of a dome such as pre fabricated sections.

The 3D image of Domeshells #Dreamdome above is a prefabricated dome systems that arrives on your site as a kit. All you need to do is prepare the circular slab according to the exact design provided and your away to assemble up to a 7.0m diamter dome in 2 days using only a couple of tools.

It is more cyclone Category five capable, well insulated and earth quake proof. Its tough outer shell can withstand extreme impact. The #DreamDome is a way to build a magically comfortable home which is also a true shelter from the storm.

The #DreamDome is the brainchild of Chris Brown of Domeshells Australia who is a true pioneer in the development of material composite systems for dome construction in addition to pioneering a range of dome building systems.


A Mini Dome Shelter for the Back Yard

The above is a great example of a back yard studio dome. Only 3.0 meters in diameter (about 7.6m2) this little cutie is transportable and can be delivered to your back yard and tied down on to its slab giving you not only a “to die for” cuby space but also a very strong storm shelter big enough for the family.

For Midwesterners who knowledge electrical storms, dome homes are also a smart choice. The shape of the rebar cage acts as a conductor, and attracts the lightning straight to the floor, thus minimizing any damage that may perhaps end result from a lightning strike.

Best Option for Shelter

Floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, and lightning dome homes can endure nearly anything.

I predict that dome structure will become a much more frequent shape of the landscape in the future when survival depends on having the best there is
