Natural Spaces Domes answer to the tiny house  
New MinneDome™ Introduced

Our small, comfortable dome gives you full size features in a tiny home. The main floor has 400 sq. ft./37 sq.m. allowing for a living room with standard furniture, a kitchen with full size appliances, a dining room that allows you to have dinner for eight and a bathroom that accommodates two people at the same time along with a stacked full size washer and dryer. 

Most tiny homes have very small sleeping lofts, some restricting you to a sitting position. Our MinneDome loft has a 7’ high ceiling, large windows, room for a queen size bed, dresser, chair and clothes closet.  The loft only covers the dining area and bath with a 100 sf./9 sm. floor.

The right two photos show our MinneDome in North Branch, MN.

Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, and Natural Spaces Domes

A Natural Spaces Dome is uniquely designed for extremely high winds and earthquakes.  Our domes have gone through tornadoes, hurricanes (including Katrina), and earthquakes (the 7.5 earthquake in Chile) with minimal surface damage and no structural damage..

The difference is in the aerodynamic shape of our dome, our exclusive dome metal connection system, and our site specific experienced structural engineering, employing standards beyond the basic codes.

Combined with our superb energy efficiency, a Natural Spaces Dome Home is a safe, comfortable, well designed home - a home for the next century.  Click here for dome "storm stories".

Geodesic Dome Home Living

A Natural Spaces geodesic dome home offers you a lifestyle that is at once comfortable, efficient and affordable while it is exciting, uplifting, inspiring and passionate.

Yes, passionate.  Our domes offer gorgeous wood interiors. We take advantage of breath taking views through our large groupings of dome triangle windows. Dome homes with high, soaring 2 1/2 story ceilings in the living/dining rooms. Open, airy domes but with a cozy, safe, "snuggly" feeling at the same time.

See what new domes we have going up by clicking on our Dome Raisings page. There may be a dome near you.

Call us for more information about seeing any of our domes. Most of our dome owners are happy to show their dome to prospective future dome owners.

Owner Built Dome Kits

We offer a unique, simple, extremely strong dome connector kit that allows you to cut out your dome wood struts and triangle panels or, you can buy complete dome home building systems - just visit Natural Spaces Domes Building System. If you want to see what our dome kits cost, you can go to The Dome Store.

Net Zero Energy Homes

One day, homes will be incredibly air-tight and energy efficient - so efficient they will consume zero net energy and even sell energy back to the electric companies.

Natural Spaces Domes are ready now.  Some of our domes are already equipped with solar panels, wind generators and are so efficient (with R-values that practically go through the roof) that they produce more energy than they consume.  One of our dome customers in New Hampshire had their almost completed home tested (December 2015) and reported they received a H.E.R.S. score of 38 and an air infiltration rate of 0.73 ACH@50 pascals! We're using tomorrow's smarter technology, today.

Green Geodesic Domes

Natural Spaces Domes has been building "green" geodesic dome homes since we started building domes in the 1970's. Green Domes

Energy Efficient Domes

Our dome homes have always been based on maximizing the energy efficiency along with resource efficiency. Using our dome kit technology based on 40 years of designing, building and refining dome homes, we have cut energy costs by 50 to 75%.  In some instances, we have reduced the air conditioning costs to zero! Our dome homes provide energy efficiency levels that other houses won't have to meet until 2025.  Real Time Energy Costs

Healthy Dome Homes

Our geodesic dome home kits offer components from sustainable sources and products that minimize toxins, creating an interior living space that promotes the health of your family. We built our first really healthy dome home in 1983 based on personal experiences from living in a dome for 8 years. Healthy Domes

40 Years of Dome Building Experience

In the early 1980's our dome houses featured R-values of 60 to 70. In 1972, we were selling dome kits with systems that included solar heating, solar hot water, wind power and methane gas digesters. We learned how to create a dome home using 60% less building materials than a standard, wasteful box house.
