We're Tessa and Dennis, owners of Natural Spaces Domes. We were married in Bear Creek Dome Oct. 13, 2007, and this is now our home.


It's our newest Natural Spaces dome, built using environmentally sane, Earth friendly building principles and materials. A culmination of 35 years of building green.

The sidebar at the left will show you all of the step by step photos involved in each building process.

We wanted a house that exuded textural quality, that had visual excitement, but a space that still had warmth and livability. We think we've accomplished all of our goals.

The photos below show the finished house. Click on each photo for a larger image then click on the "more photos and information" to see more detailed photos and more dome data.
