One Owner-Builder of an American Ingenuity dome complex is planning to relocate to Florida. He sold his dome complex in the Greenville/Spartanburg area of South Carolina.

The dome complex consists of one fully furnished 40’ dome home (2 Bedroom, 2 ½ bath 1,600 sq.ft.) linked to a 27’ two car garage with a 12’ utility dome and a dog dome.

These domes are situated on the high point of 6.9 acres of land. 5.5 acres are pasture land, 1.4 acres are hardwood forest. The domes sit on a hill with a gorgeous view.


This dome home consists of an American Ingenuity 40′ dome linked to a 27′, two car garage. The garage first floor is 555 sq.ft. with a 16 foot wide overhead door and a 680 sq.ft. attic. The attic floor is fully suspended from the dome shell so there are no columns or supporting walls to interrupt the garage first floor.

• Draperies by ADO – “Draperies with the Gold Thread.”
• Jacuzzi

• Water Heating: tank-less, on-demand propane gas water heater unit.

Construction: Steel reinforced concrete shell with 7” thick E.P.S polystyrene insulation.

This Geodesic Dome Home is super energy efficient with a low environmental impact. It has been tested by a third party independent testing company and was subsequently certified as an ENERGY STAR HOME by EPA. The home actually uses 61 percent less energy than a comparably sized home.
