I love this idea!! And I think the dome homes are cool looking.
I live in a mobile home so you can imagine the stress I go through during hurricane season. And I don't like to evacuate so a dome home would be such a great idea for Floridians!
Also being energy efficient just puts the icing on the cake!!
Way to go Mickey!!
I feel the same fear every spring. I live in tornado alley. To people married to the idea that proper homes MUST be square/oblong I say, you just can't fix stupid. Sorry, but the overwhelming benefits of dome technology ( strength, durability, energy efficiency) are without doubt. Just ask FEMA. I believe they've classified domes as "near safe structures". Also, dome structures feature prominently in Nasa's plans for potential housing on Mars. So I guess they know a thing or two about survival in extreme conditions.
