Another shoes icon on the lower left also enables you to move through rooms.  (Use the glove that appears to drag the viewing angle around)\

Please note that the 3D software utilized to create these 3D Models does not show the first floor or second floor dome sloping walls. As a result  first floor layouts show incorrect window and door sizes and some second floor 3D layouts do not match the furniture layouts in the actual second floor plan layouts.  Beneath each 3D view is the floor plan layout with furniture with the second floor showing the perimeter five foot, six foot and seven foot height lines.  You can print out the layout and cut out the to-scale ruler to measure the length and width of the rooms.   We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

The SECOND FLOOR CENTER HEIGHT slopes down to five feet on the perimeter.  

Second floor center height:

40′ – eleven feet seven inches
45′ – thirteen feet seven inches
48′ – fourteen feet 10 inches

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
