Buy a foreclosure home or a new dome?
Old vs. New
There are many older homes built in the pre 1940 era. Technologically these are seriously outdated homes. No
insulation in the walls and very little in the roof. Most likely they have layers of lead based paint. Their windows are
usually single pane with an outside storm window. Small, almost non-functional rooms, odd layouts or ill-conceived
Homes from 1945 to 1975 - We built massive amounts of new houses to satisfy a population explosion that had a mostly
ever increasing economy. But energy was "penny cheap" and not even considered a building factor. We built with some new materials like plywood and sheetrock but the methods and details remained (for the most part) wedded to the previous era.
Homes from 1975-2000 - we thought we knew how to build the modern house but most of the time, we blew it. We missed the important details. We ended up with mold issues, ice dam problems in cold climates, air infiltration issues, and the
use of cheap, imitation materials all of which destined the house for a short life.
Today, our Natural Spaces Dome home is based on over 40 years of practical building science and technology. Our system has evolved and our resolve to build a home for the next centuries has strengthened. Do we know how to build a real energy efficient, healthy, comfortable and livable modern home? You betcha, as we say in the midwest USA. We provide our basic dome home that is structurally superior - able to take high winds, tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes. Our building materials, combined with properly designed heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems, can insure a healthy interior environment.
Our intelligent, personalized architectural design provides a customized dome plan, insuring that your Natural Spaces Dome home will be a comfortable, healthy, and very enjoyable living experience for you and your family for decades to come.
