We have completely updated the interior main floor decor. The 2-level, 1750 sqft office portion can also be “viewed” as a 4-bedroom home. The wood interior dome triangle panels have been finished with a white stain creating a light and bright interior.
30′ Diameter Low Profile – 1000 sqft
An attached 1 bedroom guest dome encompasses 1000 sqft on one floor centered around a 30′ diameter. low profile dome. It is a great plan for a cabin or small retirement home. The dining/living area has gorgeous river views. The “L” shaped kitchen and large bath have many “accessible design” features: pull out cabinet shelves; walk-in, wheelchair accessible shower, sink cabinet open below for chair, bathroom handrails, wheelchair turnaround space, and electrical outlets at 24″ off the floor. The large main bedroom is an extension off the dome. There is a small loft sleeping area, perfect for kids, two-car garage attached. The interior is done in “satin-sawn” cedar left natural with no finish.

We also have a 3-frequency 2-story screened-in porch dome. The deck inside is accessible to our main level. It’s a great way to escape our Minnesota mosquitoes.

The upstairs has the master bedroom with a balcony and walk-in closet, another bedroom and a large bath. Above the master bedroom is the 4th-floor attic cupola with skyloft floor.

The lower level (Permanent Wood Foundation System) walkout has a rec. room, photo darkroom, and storage. The loft has the main bedroom and bath. There is a small view cupola/skyloft. There is also a handicap accessible ramp to the main floor. Parking and turnaround space down the driveway is limited but should be adequate for the tour. Newly added is an array of solar panels. Gloria would love to talk to you about them.
36′ Diameter Low Profile
This dome has 2 extensions and 1250 sqft on 2 floors, no lower level (there is a crawl space). The main floor has an open living-dining area with a patio door leading to the outside deck overlooking a small lake. There are stairs leading down to another level with a great outside African style covered bar. The entry extension incorporates a half-bath and laundry. The main floor also has an efficient kitchen along with a master bedroom and full bath. Because there is no basement, the furnace is located on the main floor. The loft is another bedroom. This is an excellent example of a small affordable dome. Bev & Ron would love to talk to you about their huge display of South African items from their several Safari trips.
