I am a big fan of Monolithic Domes Part science fiction geek fantasy (think Logan ‘s Run) part parabolic efficiency and conservation of materials and resources. Hell, theyare cool -There’s even some that are built underground for that maximum James Bond Villian or Rich Hobbit effect. I shouldn’t make fun of them because they have an organization.So get yourself a Monolithic Dome today. If you are the do- it -yourself type get thestuff to get back to the egg or find some guys who are licensed to do it. Happy Doming!
Hot Damn! do I love metal buildings or what?. Ok I love the idea of metal buildings. Pouring the foundation alone can cost thousands of dollars, and one company offers tin shacks so advanced that they look like a split level ranch house and cost upwards of 100k, at which point you should really consider an actual house ,dude. I don’t actually have the land or the money to make it feasable, but damn do I love metal buildings! Metal Buildings like you can get from Heritage Building Systems or even Pioneer Steel not to mentionSteel Master or Miracle Truss or even Steelspan. “They’re Just sheds dude, calm down:” you might say but the folks at USBuildings beg to differ. As does Ironbuilt Metal Buildings
