SEBC Press Release:

Numbers on the Rise for the Region’s Premier Building Conference

For Immediate Release:

Twenty percent more residential and commercial construction exhibitors. Sixty percent more building
industry educational offerings. And, a 100 percent new location. This year’s Southeast Building
Conference (SEBC), held on July 28-29, 2016 in Kissimmee, Florida, was reflective of the region’s
current homebuilding market – it’s on the rise.

“We set the bar high, when it came to planning and executing the 2016 SEBC,” says Bill Smock, SEBC
Committee Chairman and Owner of Gator Plumbing in Bradenton, Florida. “With the industry’s
pendulum swinging back in a positive direction, we wanted SEBC to be indicative of that shift.”
During the two-day expo, builders and members of the industry experienced a sold-out trade show, that
showcased regional and international distributors such as TOTO, Viking Distributing, and Master Brand.
Attendees were given access to not only a higher quantity of exhibitors, but quality interaction as well.

“Builders and exhibitors alike value their time,” says Kimberly Scott, SEBC Director. “We wanted SEBC
to offer multiple engagement opportunities for the establishment of new business relationships and
exposure to new products, without either group getting lost in the crowd. And, we are confident we
delivered.”

In addition to a sold out expo hall, attendees had access to over 60 hours of education provided by
industry leaders. Students learned the latest in design trends, innovative building technology, and
marketing developments. Keynote speakers hailed from Consumer Reports, the Wall Street Journal, and
Houzz.

This year’s SEBC experience was amplified by its move from their longstanding venue, the Orange
County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, to the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in
Kissimmee, Florida. This intimate venue offers close proximity for all SEBC offers; networking
opportunities with exhibitors and colleagues, top-notch education, expo show, and inclusive events that
welcome all attendees.

The 2017 SEBC will be held on July 27-28, returning to the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention
Center in Kissimmee. For more information on SEBC go to www.sebcshow.com

Established in 1977, the southeast Building Conference (SEBC) is the premier regional building industry
trade show in the Southeast providing the latest in residential and commercial construction products and
services. The Southeast region covers: Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana,
Mississippi, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

The following article covers American Ingenuity’s two page Dome Kit Order Form & Parts List Description. 

Each floor plan varies as to the number and type of entryways, window dormers and door dormers. Once Ai knows which floor plan you prefer, we can complete a preliminary Building Kit Order Form that lists the kit with entryway and dormer pricing. Once your plans are finished, the preliminary Order Form is updated to show pricing for the Parts List Items.

 Generally additional entryways or dormers can add $300 to $4,000 on to the kit with one entryway sale pricing.

  • The 2×4’s cut/drilled/painted for the temporary wooden rib system to support the panels during kit assembly can be purchased from Ai or we email the specifications for them to be cut on your site.  The 2×4’s can number 75 (for 2 freq domes 15’ – 27’) or 135 (3 freq domes 30’-48’) or 210 (4 freq. 60’). 2×4’s can add approx. $605 or $1,088 or $1,999 to your Order Form.
    • (Due to fluctuating 2×4 prices we do not know exact price right now. Pricing will be based on current 2×4 costs at the time of shipment.)  Ai does not add overhead costs to the labor to cut the 2×4’s. Only the labor costs to cut the 2×4’s plus 2×4’ cost itself determines the pricing.
  • Parts List Items can add $300 to $1,500 to the Order Form: The second floor of the dome can be partially suspended from the dome shell. Depending on your floor plan & size of dome there can be 8 to 20 rods.  This means suspension rods are installed in the shell during the kit assembly.  A rod and top and bottom plate is around $50. The rods and other items are listed on the Parts List.

 The following description is to give you a heads up as to what is included within the two pages of the American Ingenuity  Dome Kit Order Form.  

The first page of the Order Form lists:

  • The dome kit size and its regular pricing and discount (any discount is on the kit with one entryway pricing and is not on the building options)
  • All the individual building options (entryways, window dormers, door dormers, cupola, link, etc), each are listed separately with quantities and pricing
  • Pricing for the items from the Parts List.  See below for a description of the Parts List.
  • Shipping Estimate or states Shipping To Be Determined Later.  Minimum shipping cost is $800.
  • Sales tax and applicable Florida surtax if kit is shipped to Florida property address
  • Date sale pricing is good through
  • Date Signed Order Forms and Deposit are due by to receive sale pricing
  • A Shipping Date range for kit shipment
  • Estimated Shipping Costs
  • $120 purchase for the four lifting spikes (items are not returned to Ai).  If purchasing more than one dome, you need one set of spikes for each dome as they wear out with use.
  • Hub Deposit & purchase bolts, nuts, washers:
    • If you are in the USA a deposit is placed on the steel hubs for 5 months rental time with $20 monthly rental cost over five months.  The deposit is returned when all hubs are returned within the five month rental period. 
      • 3 freq domes: 30’- 48’ dome kit –  the hub deposit is $1,610  for 46 steel hubs.
      • 2 freq domes: 22’ & 27’ dome kit – the hub deposit is $910 for 26 steel hubs.
      • 4 freq dome: 60′ dome kit – the hub deposit is $2,485 for  71 steel hubs.
      • The steel hubs are bolted to your locally purchased 2×4’s that you cut, drill holes and paint the ends…the hubs and 2×4’s make up the geodesic wooden support skeleton to hold the panels in place while the seams between the panels are concreted and the entryways and dormers are concreted.   You borrow the hubs from us and UPS or mail them back to us when you are finished with them.  Ai issues you a refund check, less any missing hubs, etc.  Once the mesh in the seams is overlapped, locked with C rings and concreted and the entryways and dormers are concreted the dome is self-supporting and the rib system is removed. There is no wood in or on the shell to interrupt the insulation.
    • Purchase price for bolts, nuts & washers that are used to connect the steel hubs to 2×4 wooden ribs. 2 & 3 freq. $128.  4 freq. $160. These items are not returned to Ai.  The items get worn with use and cannot be used again.
  • International Orders – hubs are purchased because they weight around 150 lbs and cannot be returned.
    • For 2 freq domes 26 hubs are purchased with bolts, nuts, washers for approx. $1,170 and not returned to Ai.
    • For 3 freq domes 46 Hubs are Purchased with bolts, nuts, washers for approx. $2,070 because they are not returned.
    • Ai has to rent a telescoping forklift to load the container. Our forklift cannot be used.  The rental cost is $800 for one day rental.  If your order includes two or more containers, the telescoping forklift may need to be rented for two days or more. You will need a telescoping forklift to unload the container.
    • Add $200 for Ai to complete international paperwork and coordinate your shipping with your freight forwarder.
  • Purchase cut, drilled, painted 2×4’s for temporary wooden rib system from Ai or Ai can email specs for the 2×4’s to be cut, drilled, painted on site.  To determine pricing, Ai only charges the cost of the 2×4 and actual labor costs to cut, drill and paint the 2×4’s.  Ai does not add our business overhead costs to the 2×4 pricing. 
    • For two freq: 15’, 18’, 22’ or 27’ dome there are 75 – 2×4’s – approx. price $605
    • For three freq: 30’ – 48’ domes there are 135 – 2×4’s approx. price $1,088

The temporary support system needs 2×4’s cut to a precise length, holes drilled in both ends of the 2×4’s that make the triangles and one hole drilled in the 2×4 leg for the riser panels and ends painted red, white or blue to match the hub leg colors.  Ai realizes this cutting, drilling and painting is difficult and time consuming for our buyers; therefore, the cut, drilled and painted 2×4’s can be purchased from Ai and shipped on the truck with the dome kit.

Please let us know if there are any items you do not want to purchase, and we will remove them from the Parts List or change any quantities.

The second page of the Order Form is the Parts List which consists of two parts.

 The first part of the Parts List is a listing of items that come with the kit;

  • 4-8 cans of expanding foam, one metal expanding foam dispensing gun and one can of cleaner
  • 2 galvanized steel cables that go around the dome
  • admixture A – for concrete
  • admixture B – for concrete
  • synthetic fibers – for first layer of concrete
  • bonding agent – applied between two layers of concrete
  • C-rings and two pairs of C-ring pliers
  • Cupola kit if you have a cupola

 The second part of the Parts Lists is a listing of items not included in the kit which you can choose to purchase from Ai:

  • Items to suspend the second floor perimeter joists and to suspend other areas of the second floor where there are no first floor load bearding walls
    • 6 ft Suspension rod with nut coated to prevent rust & two nuts & washer -$19 set
    • Top plates, bottom plates or flat plates for horizontal seams….Ai purchases the steel, cuts the steel and drills it and bends it to specs. Each plate $14.90.
    • Garage door header modified Z plate – $14.90
  • Concrete Accelerator (if you are going to be mixing concrete in late fall when temperatures could be freezing at night)
  • ¼” cable for lip edge of first floor door dormer – $2.50/ft.
  • Simpson hangers (connect the second floor edge beams to the joists) – $1.95 to $4.20 each
  • 1/2″ in diameter 6″ long stainless steel forged eyebolts for the top of the dome – $17 each.  During kit assembly a 4″ Vent Pipe is installed where the five top P panels meet.  An eyebolt is installed in each of the five top seams five inches from the vent pipe.  To paint the dome a rope is tied thru an eyebolt and secured to the worker’s harness.  The eyebolt keeps the rope away from the Vent Pipe so the pipe is not damaged.  The rope attached to the eyebolt needs to be part of an engineered system with a maximum arresting force of 900 lbs.  If a cupola is purchased six other eyebolts are purchased for a total of 11 eyebolts.
  • 1”x1” galvanized steel mesh for link – $1.05/sq.ft. – can be ordered in 300 sq.ft.; 500 sq.ft. or 600 sq.ft. amounts…we are shipping complete rolls. This way we do not need to unroll the rolls and measure lengths out and then reroll the rolls and strap them, etc. If you want less than 300 sq.ft. then the price per sq.ft.is $2.10.
  • Ai originally designed 22’ and 27’ domes as two frequency domes for garages because the entryway would remove three riser panels instead of two risers for the 30’ thru 48’ dome entryways. This causes the 22’ and 27’ dome entryway panels to be longer.  Because they are longer they consist of 3 ½” EPS not wrapped in steel mesh and there is no concrete applied on the underside or lip edge.  However if the dome kit buyer purchases 1”x1” galvanized steel mesh for 15’ or 18’ or 22’ or 27’ G  type entryway panels at  $1.05/sq.ft. – minimum 300 sq.ft. or $315. Ai will wrap the 15’ or 18’ or 22’ or 27’ entryway panels at no labor cost for our buyer.
  • 1/2″x 1/2″ galvanized steel mesh for the entryway and dormer framing – $1.05 per sq.ft.
  • Additional “C” Rings (small and large) are purchased because they tend to get dropped. Small (2 – 3 lbs) – $5.85 per pound.  Large (2-3 lbs) – $4.75 per pound.
  • Two additional “C” Ring pliers are purchased – $18 each.
  • Additional Bonding Agent is purchased. The Bonding Agent that American Ingenuity ships with your kit is new and improved and is better than what you can purchase locally.  Locally Home Depot, etc. sells a cheaper bonding agent which is a blend of vinyl & acrylic resins. The bonding agent we include with your kit is manufactured by Richard’s Paint and is number RP295.  It is a 100% pure acrylic resin. Ai sells a five gallon bucket for $107 because Ai wants you to have the very best bonding agent.  Ai recommends that you purchase an extra five gallon bucket for each dome kit instead of purchasing a less quality bonding agent locally when you run out.
  • Additional metal expanding foam dispensing gun $40 – gun wears out from use.
  • Additional synthetic fibers for the second layer of concrete – $7.00 a bag – good for four bags of Portland cement.
  • Additional cans of cleaner for the metal foam dispensing gun – $10.85 ea – small dome 1 can.  Large dome 2 – 3 cans.
  • Additional admixture A and admixture B as liquids get spilled or evaporate in the hot sun.  Depends on size dome.  Small dome 1 gal A and 2 gals B.  Large dome 2 gals A and 4 gallons B.   A is $30.40 a gallon. B is $34.40 a gallon.
  • Additional 24 oz cans of expanding foam – $11.10 ea. Small kits need 12 extra cans; larger kits 40’, 45’ 48’ – 24 cans.
    • Ai ships 4 – 8 cans of expanding foam with your kit at no cost to you. You can purchase more cans from us.  Our cans are 24 ozs. We send a metal dispensing gun and a can of cleaner at no cost. Expanding foam is applied under each riser panel.  Grooves are cut in the dome shell wall board & EPS to insert the electrical wiring.  After the electrical wiring is installed, the grooves are filled with expanding foam, the expanding foam is cut flush and then the wall is finished with tape and joint compound just as drywall is finished or with mixture of cement/perlite – recipe in Assembly Manual.   Of course, you can decrease or increase this number.  The dispensing gun allows your workers to start and stop the foam without having to use the whole can at one time…like you do with the small cans that you purchase from the hardware store that have the plastic nozzle which cannot be restarted the following day.

 Items on the Parts List can be shipped with your dome kit at no extra shipping cost.  American Ingenuity only orders Parts Items based on each customer’s order.  Ai does not stock any of these items; therefore if you need additional items after the kit is shipped we can give you the phone number of the company where you can order parts (bonding agent, Enerfoam, etc) directly from them, pay their shipping cost, handling fee and have the items drop shipped to you.

The Parts List items and the 2×4 pricing for the temporary rib system can change because their costs can fluctuate.  Two months prior to the delivery of your kit, Ai will call the shipping broker and obtain your shipping cost and will review the 2×4’ pricing and Parts List items.  If costs have changed, Ai will complete a revised Order Form showing latest pricing and shipping cost.  The balance due on your Order Form is due three weeks prior to the shipping of your dome kit in the form of a cashier’s check or bank check.

 

All Domes Can Be Designed Without a Loft or Second Floor

To view chart showing square footages, etc. click on Chart

If you want to max out the second floor this means there are no high vaulted ceilings over the first floor.  Each floor plan varies as to how much of the second floor is built on site.  Usually 30% to 50% of the second floor is NOT built which results in spacious, high vaulted ceilings over the first floor.  Dashed lines on the stock plans show the high vaulted ceiling areas.  Each second floor has 5′, 6′ & 7′ perimeter height lines drawn in.

15′ dome – two frequency dome with standard 4′ risers and additional 2′ risers.

  • First floor square footage is 172 sq.ft.
  • The dome kit has standard four foot tall risers & additional two foot tall risers which results in first floor ceiling height in rooms that have loft built above them of 8′.   

18′ dome – two frequency dome with standard 4′ risers and additional 2′ risers.

  • First floor square footage is 249 sq.ft.

  • The dome’s interior center height without a cupola is 24’5″.  With cupola is  27’1″.  Without cupola, the second floor center height is 14’9″ sloping down to perimeter height of five feet.
  • Dome can be designed without a second floor or loft. Or the second floor can be built with 30% to 50% left open over the first floor producing high vaulted ceilings.  Please see 48′ Elevation view on previous page.

American Ingenuity Residential Dome Stock, Modified or Custom Residential Building Plans are 50% off American Ingenuity’s plan pricing, if ordered prior to September 1, 2015.  If you do not see a stock plan that fits your lifestyle, Ai can design custom plans from your sketches and notes. To view Plan’s Sale Pricing, please click on Plans Discount. 

American Ingenuity’s Building Plans are New & Improved.  It is Ai’s philosophy that each customer pay for only what they need. Ai does not burden the price of the dome building kit with plan’s pricing, engineer seal cost, structural calculations cost or energy report cost. Building plans are purchased three months to 1 1/2 years prior to dome kit shipment.  About 50% of the building departments require engineer sealed plans, calculations and an energy report to issue a permit. As a result each customer pays for their plans separately from the building kit and pays for a seal, calculations and energy report only if their building department requires them.

How can I view American Ingenuity’s stock floor plans? There are three ways:

Q: What is the standard foundation included with the residential stock plans?

A: Concrete slab. For Ai to design a basement or concrete columns or stem wall or pilings, etc. an engineer fee is added to the Plans Quote to cover the cost for a local Florida licensed PE engineer to calculate the load of the dome and the load of the two floors within the dome and give joist/edge beam size/spacing and foundation design to our CAD department to incorporate within your building plans. The local engineer requires a soil report which includes a soil’s engineer recommendation for type of foundation to be built.  Please call Ai at 321-639-8777 for more info.

Q: Do you have pictures showing Kit Assembly Steps?

A:  Yes, to view panel assembly info click on Dome Kit Assembly, Construction Overview , 22′ Video or Ai Dome Video.

Q: Do you have an engineering statement about your dome panels?

A:  Yes, to view the statement click on Engineering.

 

DESIGN FLEXIBILITY

If you do not see a stock plan to fit your desires, Ai’s design team can modify a stock plan or design a custom plan from your sketch and notes for a reasonable fee. Even modified or custom plans are discounted the same percentage as Ai’s stock plans.

When viewing the stock plans for each diameter dome (22′, 27′, 30′, 34′, 36′, 40′, 45′ and 48′), you will realize that the square footage of each plan in each diameter dome varies.  This square footage varies because the size of the second floor changes due to how much of the first floor is left open to give high vaulted ceilings over the first floor rooms. Plus the 40′ or larger domes can have a small loft if a cupola is installed.

Some plans show the second floors maxed out meaning there are no high vaulted ceilings over the first floor. Other plans show high vaulted ceilings over one half of the first floor.  Look for the dashed lines because they reveal how much of the second floor is installed.

On the second floor of each plan there are perimeter height lines 5′, 6′ and 7′ showing how close you can stand to the second floor perimeter dome shell walls.  Cut out the to-scale ruler and measure between the height lines to check out the second floor space.  In a typical house there is an attic not generally walked in…but in our 27′ – 48′ domes the second floor is useable.  To learn about useable second floor square footage, click on Second Floor.  A lift or rail chairgives access to the second floor if not wanting to walk up the stairs.  Click on Cupola to learn about it and third floor lofts.

The following gives a recap of how many bedrooms and bathrooms typically fit in each diameter dome.  The diameter of each dome is in feet.  Ai gives square footage by room and by floor and Ai includes a to-scale ruler and to-scale furniture to learn about the spaciousness of the domes.   The second floor square footage is calculated per code to 5′ of height and does not include closets.  All floor plans show second floor perimeter height lines of 5′, 6′ and 7′.  Using the to-scale ruler you can measure the second floor area that has 7′ or more of headroom.

If you do not see a stock plan that fits your lifestyle, our designers can modify a stock plan or design a custom plan from your sketches.  Click on Stock/Modified/Custom to learn more.

For Ai to design a garage dome, give us your vehicle length, width, height and hood height and our Computer Aided Drafting Department (CAD) will design a proof showing the first floor plan with stairs and your vehicle sizes.

Q: I see that American Ingenuity is no longer manufacturing skylight panels. What lighting methods do you recommend?

A: Over the years American Ingenuity has accumulated information about the skylights and has determined that skylights are not the best method to bring light into our dome structures. Rather than offer an option that we feel is not beneficial, American Ingenuity has decided to remove this item as an option on our dome kits.

The most efficient way to add interior light is to install first floor entryways and max out second floor window dormers and or install second floor door dormers. Instead of installing a door install a tall window. This way when double paned glass gets moisture between it, you or your handyman can remove the window and tarp the dormer so no rain will come in while the window is being repaired. The dormers also provide an awning to protect the window. If you purchase windows that can be opened (with a pole or electrically for inaccessible windows); this would be an additional way to get fresh air into the dome.

There are five specific locations on the second floor where window dormers or door dormers can be installed. If selecting an existing plan, Ai can let you know where additional dormers can be installed. Or on a new custom plans design you can see where they can be located on the floor planner.

If your master suite is on the first floor and an entryway is designed in the suite, there will be ample light coming in through windows installed in the entryway. Once your dome kit is assembled (but not finished), you can better determine if more light is desired by standing inside the unfinished dome. At this point install solar tubes; they can be added into the panels during the finishing of your shell. A hole can be cut into any panel; just do not cut within 8” of the center of a seam.

Solar tubes unlike traditional skylights, are designed to control the problematic aspects of sunlight. They reduce glare and inconsistent light patterns. They also screen infrared rays that can overheat interiors as well as ultraviolet rays that can fade furniture and fabrics.

STOCK PLANS IN DXF FORMAT

Now Available

Would you like to design your own Dome Floor Plan?  If you know how to use a Computer Aided Drafting Program (CAD) and if you do not see a stock plan in American Ingenuity’s Dome Stock Floor Plan Booklet that fits your needs, you can now order CDs containing a few of American Ingenuity’s Stock Floor Plans in DXF format and design your own floor plan.  By purchasing the CD, you can modify an A.I. stock plan or produce sketches that American Ingenuity can use to design your custom Building Plans.

When you purchase a CD of DXF files we include a bonus item…..a DXF file of a six inch in diameter Mini-Dome.  Not only will this model be fun to put together, but that it will also serve as a reliable reference for building a life-size three frequency dome (30′ – 48′).  Once the Mini-Dome is assembled, you can see the dome geometry consisting of Hexagon, Pentagon and Riser panels.

American Ingenuity designs the DXF files using the AUTOCAD program.  In order to manipulate or edit the DXF files you need the AUTOCAD program or a compatible drafting program.   If you do not have AUTOCAD, on the internet there is a free 30 day trial of Delta Cad which is compatible with AutoCAD. http://www.deltacad.com/.  Also you can read and edit the DXF files if you have a photo editor program like adobe or paint shop.

Origins and terminology of CAD

 per Wikipedia “The Free Encyclopedia”

CAD  originally meant Computer Aided Drafting because in the early days CAD was really a replacement for the traditional drafting board. Now, CAD usually means Computer Aided Design to reflect the fact that modern CAD tools do much more than just drafting.

CAD is sometimes translated as “computer-assisted”, “computer-aided drafting, or a similar phrase. Related acronyms are CADD, which stands for “computer-aided design and drafting”, CAID for Computer-aided Industrial Design and CADD for “computer-aided architectural design”. All these terms are essentially synonymous, but there are a few subtle differences in meaning and application. CAM  (Computer aided manufacturing) is often used in a similar way, or as a combination (CAD/CAM).

 

9th Step – Accept Delivery of Your Dome Kit. The Kit Buyer and American Ingenuity agree upon the month the dome kit will be shipped.  To receive the entire dome building kit discount, Ai determines the week and day of shipment in the agreed upon delivery month.  Buyer is given 6-8 week’s’ notice of the kit shipment date.

Your foundation does not need to be installed to accept delivery of your kit.  It is quite normal that foundations do not get installed when planned due to weather conditions, etc. Your dome kit can be stored outside for 2-3 months in nonfreezing weather waiting for your foundation installation (some boxes and items should be stored indoors.)  If more months of outside storage is needed, spray another layer of latex paint on the EPS edges.

Ai has a detailed truck unloading document which describe the kit unloading process.

 The dome kit can be stored outside (in nonfreezing months) for the following reasons:

  1. The steel reinforced concrete, noncombustible Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation & drywall are not harmed by rain.
  2. American Ingenuity paints the EPS edges that extend out of the steel reinforced concrete with latex paint.  The paint prevents UV light from harming the EPS.
  3. The special 1/2″ Georgia Pacific DensArmor drywall on the interior of the dome panel is not conventional gypsum.  When conventional gypsum gets wet, the gypsum crumbles & the paper face is a food source for mold growth.  This special DensArmor drywall contains fiberglass face with special gypsum which allows it to be moisture resistant and mold resistant as there is no food source for mold growth.  Even if the drywall gets wet and is then allowed to dry out, per the manufacturer, the DensArmor goes back to its original consistency.

8th Step – Site Clearing & Install Utilities.   Before removing any trees or disturbing any soil or plants obtain required permits.

Driveway ConstructionTo install a driveway from the main street or road to your house site, a permit may need to be issued showing culvert size, driveway width, driveway height, etc.  Please ask your building department about this.  The dome building kit will be delivered on a semi-truck that is 70 plus feet long.  If there is no turn around on your property, the truck can park at the street with the panels being forklifted or trailed to the site.  If the truck will be parked on the street, a permit may need to be obtained so you can block one lane of traffic.  Ai’s truck unloading document covers this possibility.

Install utilities as needed on your property

  1. If you have city water and sewer then there are minimum setbacks where nothing can be built next to these lines.  If you install a septic tank and drain field, the Health Department for your city or county will have requirements for size and setbacks from the tank and field where nothing can be built.
  2. Check your notes as you will have the phone number to call the Electric Power Company for installation requirements for your temporary electric power pole, lines & meter.

Clear site where your foundation will be installed and where dome panels will be stacked on pallets or boards.

To obtain the correct finished floor height, the building department will probably require a survey be taken from the crown of the nearest county or city maintained road to your building site location.  The floor is supposed to be so many inches above the crown of the road. Also if you property is in a flood zone, your floor height will be based on the mean high water mark when the property is flooded.  This height will determine if fill has to be brought in and compacted or if your home has to be built on pilings or columns. Soil under a foundation is to be compacted to 2,000 pounds per sq.ft load bearing pressure. If your soil will not compact to this number, the engineer could design the slab to be 6″ thick instead of 4″ and the footer size could change from 20″ tall to 16″ wide to 20″ tall and 20″wide. Each slab and footer size will be based on your soil psf.

If your home has to be built elevated, for Ai to design your foundation the independent engineer who assists in the design requires a soil report.   In this report a soil engineer recommends the type foundations which can be installed on that soil.  Ask local foundation subcontractors cost to build the different types of foundations and decide which one you want Ai to design.

7th Step – Obtain Building Permit.  Every Building Department in each state and city and county within a state can vary as to what they require to issue a building permit for a new residential home.  As a result it is American Ingenuity’s philosophy that each Buyer pays for only what their building department requires.  Ai does not burden the price of the building kit for building plans pricing, engineer seal fees or energy report fees. If we did, the Ai dome kit price would need to increase in price.

Some areas in Arkansas, Indiana, Vermont, Texas and other states do not have building departments, so the property owner only obtains a septic tank permit and well permit if needed.  In the cases where no Building Plans are submitted to a building department, the building plans (13-17 blueprints) are utilized to build the foundation, dome kit and finish the interior of the dome home.

Some building departments can require not just building plans be submitted but they want the plans sealed by an engineer licensed for that state.   States vary as to what code they adopt and enforce.  The codes can be 2015 International Building Code, 2012 International Building Code, 2009 International Building Code, California Building Code and 2014 Florida Building Code 5th Edition, etc. The Ai dome building plans comply with all these codes, but the building officials do not know this.  The seal confirms that the plans comply with that state’s code.  Engineer seals are specific to each floor plan and to each state. The engineer’s seal can be purchased through American Ingenuity.  The cost for a seal for any state for one dome on a slab is $600.

Prior to utilizing this PE Engineer to seal the dome plans, Ai hired engineering firms or architectural firms whose seal fees were $1,200, $1,500, $3,000 or more depending on the dome size.  The fees were larger because the firms had to cover their overhead and labor costs, etc.  The Professional Engineer that Ai utilizes to seal your plans does not have the high overhead and labor costs that firms do; therefore his fees are much less.

For custom foundations other than slab – basement, stem wall, pilings, concrete columns, etc. engineer seal fees vary.  Please call Ai for pricing.  321-639-8777 Mon-Fri 9-5 ET.

Besides the sealed plans, the building department can require the following be submitted to issue a building permit:

  1. An Energy Report be completed on the envelope of the home including the exterior door and window U factors.  Ai can complete the REScheck Energy Report for all other states but California, Washington and Florida. The price for Energy Report for one dome on a slab is $190.  These three states have their own programs so companies specializing in their completion are hired. Ai has the name of CA firm that has completed California Title 24 Energy Report on an Ai dome in Riverside Ca. For Florida Ai will provide the company you hire the wall dimensions to be entered in the report.
  2. Engineer sealed structural calculations on the structure showing the dome complies with snow, wind and seismic conditions for that area.   The Ai Dome exceeds any code requirements but the officials do not know that so they can ask for structural calculations that are sealed by an engineer licensed for your state.  If needed these engineer sealed calcs can be purchased through Ai. (Please do not ever ask a building official if they want structural calculations, because they will say yes. We wait and see if they request them.)
  3. In Florida all new construction requires Florida Engineer Sealed Building Plans, passing Florida Energy Report and other docs. If building in Florida, at no cost to you if you give us your properties tax ID number or site address we call the building department and email them a sample set of dome building plans and find out what is required.    A few Florida building departments may require Site Specific Local Product Approval on the prefab panel.  If needed the docs and calculations for the site specific local product approval are completed by an engineering firm.  Please call Ai for more pricing.
  4. Elevation Certificate – if your property is in a Flood Zone you will be required to hire a surveyor to determine the height of your finished floor to get it above the water surge or mean high water mark.  This height is entered on your building plans and you give the Certificate to your building department.
  5. Site Map – this is completed by you or a local company.  It shows outline/dimensions of your property, setbacks, driveway, location of the dome, well, septic drain field (or city sewer or city water lines), location of other out buildings, etc.  Ask your building department what they want included on your site map.
  6. Electrical Diagram, Plumbing Diagram and HVAC Diagram.  Ai does not include these diagrams in the 13-17 blueprints because Ai has found the electrical, plumbing and HVAC subcontractors prefer to design their own diagrams based on how they are going to layout your electrical, plumbing and HVAC (heating & air conditioning ducts or ductless units).
  7. If your building department requires the following, please hire your local HVAC subcontractor to complete: Manual S (Equipment Sizing Certification); Manual D (Duct Design & Layout Drawing); or Manual J for the Rescheck Energy Report (Residential Heat Load Calculation).
  8. If no city sewer or water, obtain permit to install well and septic tank and drain field based on number of bedrooms in the plan.
  9. Building Permit Fees are paid to the county or city.  In Florida impact fees are also paid.

6th Step – Order Dome Building Kit.  A great way to save on building your prefabricated dome home kit is to take advantage of American Ingenuity’s (Ai’s) sale pricing on the dome kit.   To learn about Ai’s current discount, click on Discount. To receive info on unadvertised specials, please call our office 1-321-639-8777 Monday – Friday 9 am – 5pm eastern time.

By selecting a floor plan, Ai will know the type and number of entryways, window dormers, door dormers, etc. to be manufactured with your kit and can complete a Preliminary Building Kit Order Form.

While Ai is designing your dome building plans, you can be completing all the other paperwork that is required to obtain a building permit. When your plans are finished, submit the plans and the other required paperwork to the building department for your building permit.

When your plans are finished, Ai will know the exact type and number of entryways, dormers, Parts List items and will complete a revised Building Kit Order Form showing exact items and quantities. Also if you are building in Florida and your building department requires Site Specific Local Product Approval docs and structural calculations.  Once your plans are finished, the engineering firm can complete the docs and calcs.  Call Ai for Local Product Approval pricing.  To view info about items which comes with the building kit and additional items that can be ordered, click on Order Form Description.

With building plans in hand, obtain bids for your foundation installation.  Your foundation does not need to be installed to take delivery of your dome kit.  It is quite normal that foundations do not get installed when thought due to weather, etc.  Your dome kit can be stored outside for 2-3 months, in nonfreezing weather, waiting for your foundation installation (some boxes and items should be stored indoors.)

The dome kit can be stored outside (in nonfreezing months) for the following reasons:

1)The steel reinforced concrete, noncombustible Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation & drywall are not harmed by rain;

2) American Ingenuity paints the EPS edges that extend out of the steel reinforced concrete.  The paint prevents UV light from harming the EPS.

3) The special 1/2″ Georgia Pacific DensArmor drywall on the interior of the dome panel is not conventional gypsum.  When conventional gypsum gets wet, the gypsum crumbles & paper face molds.  This special DensArmor drywall contains fiberglass face with special gypsum which allows it to be moisture resistant and mold resistant as there is no paper for food source for mold growth.  Even if the drywall gets wet and is allowed to dry out, per the manufacturer the DensArmor goes back to its original consistency.

5th Step – Purchase Dome Building Plans. Besides manufacturing geodesic dome building kits, American Ingenuity (Ai) designs residential and commercial building plans that show the room arrangements of the home and other detailed dimensions and data that are used to obtain a building permit, to build the foundation, to assemble the dome kit, install windows and doors, build interior walls and second floor joists, etc. See below for contents of the blueprints.

With your financing determined, you know what your budget is and can determine the size dome that fits your needs. Ai has dome sizes from 172 sq.ft. to 2,900 sq.ft.  To view plans, info and pricing on Tiny Homes (172 sq.ft. to 1,278 sq.ft.) please click on Tiny Domes.  To view stock floor plan layouts for each of the dome sizes from one bedroom/one bath to four bedroom/three bath home, please click on Stock Plans. Once you are on the page, scroll down to find the hyperlinks to click on. If you do not see a stock plan that fits your needs, Ai will modify or customize a plan per your sketches & emailed notes.

Ai’s stock plans contain a blueprint for the installation of a monolithic concrete slab.  Your terrain may require a stem wall, basement or elevated foundation.  Or your building department may require your new home to be built on pilings and an elevated platform. Based on your soil report and terrain and foundation construction costs for your area, you will tell Ai what type foundation you want designed below your dome.  For all foundations other than slab, Ai hires a local Florida licensed PE engineer to assist us in your custom foundation design.

Once we see which plan you prefer & what type foundation is to be designed, Ai can complete a Plans Quote that lists the regular pricing & sale pricing of the dome plans, custom foundation if needed, engineering services if needed, engineer seal fee for your state if required by your building department, and energy report cost if required by your building department. Once you agree to the Plans Quote and pay in full for the plans, any engineer services & fees, energy report, Ai schedules your plans for design. To view plans sale pricing and the dome building kit sale price for that specific plan, click on Stock Plans & Kit Sale Pricing.

AMERICAN INGENUITY’S PHILOSOPHY:   One of the reasons American Ingenuity has been in business since 1976 and is very reputable, is that we try hard to treat all our customers the same and produce a quality dome home kit. Our business philosophy and product is unique to the housing industry. Ai believes that each person should pay for only what they need. This means only the Buyers whose building departments required engineer sealed plans and energy report, pay for those items.  Ai does not burden the price of the building kit for building plans, engineer seal or energy reports as a result, Ai’s dome kit’s pricing is usually one third to one-half less than other housing kits.  One truck is required for delivery for one 27ft thru 48 ft dome kit.  No interior items other than the interior shell drywall is included with the kit. Ai believes you should not pay another truck’s shipping costs for windows, exterior doors, bathroom fixtures, kitchen cabinets, etc. when those items can be competitively shopped and purchased locally.

 What is included in American Ingenuity’s Residential & Commercial Dome Building Plans? American Ingenuity’s Building Plans are new and improved. The building plans consist of two sets of blueprints that include the drawings for the dome that are needed when acquiring a building permit for one dome built on a concrete slab. Or Ai will design custom foundations; i.e. basement, columns with concrete platform, pilings, stem wall, etc.

Plus Ai emails your completed building plans pdfs to you so that you can have additional sets of building plans plotted locally. The plans are composed using the AUTOCAD program on our computer aided drafting system.

American Ingenuity’s Building Plans contain all of the typical drawings and details from 13-17 sheets. The blueprints that are included depend on the type of entryways, dormers and foundation that are designed in your plans. Some of the Blueprint names are:

  • Cover Sheet
  • Legend Sheet
  • First Floor Plan
  • Second Floor Plan
  • Dome Panel Nomenclature
  • Exterior Elevations
  • 1st Floor Electrical Plan (shows location of electrical outlets, lighting fixtures, ceiling fans, smoke detectors)
