We are showing our small dome prototype that has 400 sq. ft. (37 sq. m) on the main floor and a loft you walk up into on a narrow, but conventional stair. You can stand up in this loft with 8’ ceilings, sleep in a queen-size bed, store your clothes in a closet and look out through 12 ft (3.66 m) wide windows. The kitchen has conventional appliances, the bath has a nice shower, the dining room can fit 6-8 people and the living room has room for more furniture than just one couch.
