Benefits of Living in a Monolithic Dome Home


Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live in a monolithic dome home? For those who are unfamiliar, these homes are designed and constructed using a specific technique that ensures the domes are energy-efficient, tornado-safe, and relatively low-maintenance. This particular monolithic dome home is special because it was built for Larry Byrne - who was The Monolithic Institute’s principal in-house designer and design consultant - and it is now listed for sale. Let’s take a closer look at the advantages of living in this type of dome house.

Design and Construction Process

The process of building a monolithic dome is quite unique. Concrete is used to construct the dome, which is supported by airforms made out of plastic or fabric. After being filled with concrete, the airform undergoes an inflation process that gives it its shape. Once it sets up, the interior and exterior walls are coated with shotcrete. This provides an insulation barrier that keeps the interior temperature consistent throughout the year while also making it strong enough to withstand tornadoes up to 300 MPH.
As an added bonus, since there are no corners or seams on this type of construction, mold and mildew won’t be able to cling onto any surfaces inside the home - making cleaning much easier than traditional homes.

Energy Efficiency

Monolithic dome homes feature thick walls that trap heat during cold weather and keep cool air in during hot weather - making them some of the most energy efficient homes available on the market today. That means lower utility bills for homeowners! The concrete shell also acts as a sound barrier from external noise pollution so you can enjoy peace and quiet even if you live near busy roads or other sources of noise disturbances.

Safety and Durability

Since monolithic dome homes are constructed using concrete and steel, they have excellent resistance against fire damage as well as wind damage from hurricanes or tornadoes up to 300 MPH... which we all know is an important quality in home built in Texas. Additionally, since there aren’t any corners or seams inside these houses, they don’t require much maintenance like traditional homes do - saving homeowners time and money in upkeep costs over time.

A monolithic dome home may not be the first thing that comes to mind when searching for your dream home. But they offer so many benefits over traditional homes such as energy efficiency, durability against natural disasters, low maintenance needs due to its lack of corners or seams where mold can grow, and soundproofing qualities thanks to its thick walls made out of concrete and steel. And just look at that gorgeous interior! Now you have an opportunity to purchase one for yourself! A very special one indeed.
