Cement Home built on concrete slabs & two photo galleries.
One showing construction pictures, the other shows finished exterior & interior.
“In the six years since we have moved into our double dome home (45′ & 34′) we have only increased our enthusiasm for this structure. There is something about the interior space that is very liberating and imaginative. One of the main reasons we built the Ai domes was its noncombustible concrete exterior. Our home site is surrounded by forests that can burn at any time. So it gives us great comfort knowing their is no roof to burn & no exterior wood framed walls to burn.” (Ron Kaufman & Marti Leicester, happy Ai Dome Owners)

Click pictures once to stop, click twice to enlarge.
The first floor of this 45′ geodesic dome home has 1,476 sq.ft. The second floor has 560 for dome total of 2,036. The basement square footage is 1,471 for a total sq.ft. of 3,507. This dome owner chose to design a custom dome floor plan with a large kitchen and living room on the first floor with the entire second floor of the dome dedicated entirely to the master bedroom, master bath and master walk in closet.
Normally a 45′ dome can be designed to include four bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths versus this dome is only one bedroom with master bath and two half baths. Each dome owner customizes their floor plan to fit their lifestyle and desires. Ai is happy to work with each person to design their dome plan to fit their dreams.
