If you wish to order the complete 13' diameter EconOdome cabin kit,
Info about and costs for 26’ 2V (two frequency) EconOdome Kits
(fyi: Larger EconOdome Kits are made with a 4V (four frequency geodesic geometry).
A hemispherical 4V EconOdome kit has 10 vertical trapezoids and 130 triangles.
The 26’ 2V EconOdome allows for larger skylights than a 4V dome because the triangles are larger.
The 26 ft. dia. 2V dome has 40 framed triangles made with 65 precision cut struts.
The longest strut length and triangle edge length is 8 feet.
The 8 ft. length works well with both conventional lumber lengths and 4’x8’ sheet sizes.
There is framing within each large triangular frame to better support the covering panels.
And, also to allow the large panels to be divided into smaller and easier to handle panels.
If you wish to complete your dome home more quickly and also create a beautiful ceiling:
We recommend you consider building with an EconOdome T-Beam frame kit.
