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.

Where doors & windows are located in the dome, structural awnings called entryways and dormers must be installed. The type & number of Building Options are determined by your choice of floor plan & whether you desire taller risers; therefore, each option is priced separately. If your plan contains only one entryway, custom risers can add $2,320 to $4,204 to your order. Entryway and Dormer panels consist of 3½" EPS with steel mesh attached (except for 22’ & 27’) requiring on-site concreting. Standard & High Profile entryway panels for 30’ and larger domes are concreted on the interior side. Call for Link pricing. Link can be purchased with wallboard. Links consist of precut 7” EPS. Steel mesh can be purchased from Ai. The link requires on-site mesh installation and concreting. * 45’ & 48’ dome kits with 9” insulation require two trucks for transport.
American Ingenuity Domes are designed with flexibility, allowing you to create your own personal home. Exterior doors & windows are purchased locally and installed onsite within the entryways and dormers using locally purchased materials. * For additional light, max out the second floor window dormers & door dormers. Install a tall window instead of a door within a door dormer. Or a solar tube can be installed onsite within a panel. (Do not cut within 8” of a seam).
