This dome has been featured on “World’s Greenest Homes” on Discovery’s Planet Green channel. Rated as an Energy Star 5+ home (the highest rating) with a H.E.R.S. score of 55 (a very good rating, especially for a home built in 2007 with fiberglass insulation).

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.

The Double Domes – http://www.thedoubledomes.com/
The domes were originally designed by Dennis Odin Johnson in 1975 for a couple of doctors with 4 children and built with a 2 story basketball half-court and rec room. This dome is available and ideal for vacations, family reunions, and corporate retreats. Sarah and Peter own and rent this 6 bedroom/5 bath double geodesic dome home sitting on a 2-acre lot. The house itself is an absolute gem -truly a once in a lifetime home that the famous architect – Buckminster Fuller, himself – has actually been in before. The Double Domes’ 7,787 square foot interior can comfortably accommodate almost any number, making it the perfect location for those special events. Each dome is a 44’/13.5 diameter mid-profile dome.
