A second cousin of mine owns a dome home in Spearfish. He is a sphere artist. Termespheres- Art that captures the up, down and all around visual world from one revolving point in space Not sure if you can see his home here anywhere or not.

That's the guy I was trying to describe earlier!!! YES! He's actually a great artist! One of his "termespheres" hangs in the Main Gallery at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center. It portrays the history of Rapid City on a GIANT sphere.

To the best of my knowledge, the easiest way to build a dome home is to buy a very large weather balloon, stake it out on the ground so that about half of it's surface area is on the ground. Inflate the balloon, then, (there are companies, at least one I know of in N. Carolina) that create special use foam substances. when the balloon is inflated, spray the outside with the foam, to a thickness of at least eight inches, a foot would be better. After it hardens, cut the door where you want it to be, and remove the balloon. Cut windows where you wish, it is easy to heat and cool. Build floor to the existing structure, put in partition walls as needed, to run plumbing or electricity, the lines run under the outside wall. You can get quite creative if it is your wish. D
