A more economical EconOdome Home Building Kit
Little Dome Homes by Faze Change Produx
are Designed to be Permanent and Durable Dome Homes.
Little Dome Homes are energy efficient and
safer in storms of all kinds.
A round shape lets the storm blow a-round the building.
Little Dome interior floor plans can be revised to be exactly as you wish.

This Little 2V Two-Story Ten-Sided EconOdome Home
with 40 triangles on the hemispherical dome roof is
26 feet in diameter and has 808 square feet of Living Area.
We also make a Similiar & Slightly Larger 2V Dome Home Kit that is
30' in diameter and has 1,138 sf of Living Area on two floors.
There is enough open space within the dome roof for three bedrooms
and a loft area above the bedrooms and near the center,
as the ceiling is 15' high in the center.
On Caribbean Islands and Midwest Plains
we fear high winds and heavy rains.
We want to be happy, well fed, and safe from harm.
So next to our productive organic farm
we build a little round charm,
Slightly larger than tiny and safer in storms...
A little dome home that eases our alarm.
Painted sheetrock most often is visible behind and between the exposed 2x4 trim.
It will cost extra to have solid wood exposed behind the trim as shown above.
The inside of the loft level dome ceiling may be finished with
all exposed wood or more economically with sheetrock.
See both standard and options pricing below.
TWO OPTIMUM DOME HOME SIZES:
Both the 26 ft. and the 30 ft. 2V EconOdomes have
40 framed triangles
made with 65 precision cut struts when fully assembled..
Little 2V EconOdome Frame Kits are made with fewer triangles
so that the triangles are big enough to contain operable skylights.
There is additional "T-blocking" within each large triangular frame
to better support both the interior and exterior panels.
The exposed 2x4 wood trim attached to the triangulated main frame
and attached to the T-blocking create a beautiful pattern on the dome ceiling.
If you wish to complete your dome home quickly and also
create a beautiful ceiling with lots of precision cut exposed wood:
We recommend you consider building with an
EconOdome T-Beam frame kit.
The T-Beams hold both the interior and exterior panels in place
with the help of "the force" of gravity.
