At no cost to you, provide your properties tax ID number or site address, and we will call your building department, show them our web site, email set of building plans if needed and find out what is required to obtain a building permit.  Do they require an engineer licensed for your state to seal the building plans?  Do they require a ResCheck Energy Report?  If so the seal & energy report can be purchased from Ai.  

The following describes what panels are included in the 34’ kit:  The kit includes all the prefabricated panels to assemble the dome shell and the panels for one entryway. The triangle and four foot tall rectangle riser panels consist of center core of 7” Expanded polystyrene insulation (EPS) (R28), with ¾” concrete exterior reinforced with fibers & galvanized steel mesh & 1/2” Georgia Pacific DensArmor interior drywall. (the edges of the EPS insulation on the triangle & riser panels have been painted which allows the kit to be stored outside for 2-3 months in non-freezing weather prior to assembly). (some boxed items and other items need to be stored inside.)

Depending on your floor plan selection, additional entryway or dormers can be purchased at current pricing: 34’standard entryway is $660; high profile entryway is $685; first floor or second floor Window dormer is $345. First floor Door dormer is $375.  To view stock plans for the 34′ dome, click on Stock Plans and scroll down the page to find the 34′ diameter. 

FYI, depending on the plan you select, the layout can be two bedrooms/two baths or three bedrooms/two baths.  The 34′ Epsilon 15 featured below, (after kit assembled and finished with local materials) has three bedrooms and two baths.  If you do not see a stock plan that fits your lifestyle, we can modify or customize a plan for a reasonable fee.

The Ai dome kit was specifically designed for Owner Builders.  All panels are premarked with numbers and letters to match the building plans and the Assembly Manual.   The assembly process consists of stacking the panels on the temporary wooden rib system overlapping and locking the steel mesh of adjacent panels, filling the seams with special formulated concrete and concreting of the entryways and dormers.  Finish the interior wall board seams with fiberglass tape and joint compound.  This process produces the structural components, completes the finished exterior surface, installs the insulation and all the interior shell wallboard.  Seam areas between panels concreted on site and average two inch thick concrete.  To view kit assembly, click on Assembly.  Independent consultant can be hired to supervise kit assembly.

On site, under the entryways and dormers a 2×4 or 2×6 wall is framed in to install your locally purchased doors and windows.

The concrete applied in the seams and on the entryways and dormers is sponge finished to match the pre-finished texture of the concrete panels. The dome is primed with concrete primer and then painted with two coats of exterior concrete paint to achieve the color you desire. To blend the DensArmor interior drywall seam finish to the DensArmor fiinish, skip trowel joint compound over the dome shell drywall.
