Design Advantages

1.   The lightest and smallest components in a geodesic dome kit.

2.   The most accurate connection system creates identical triangles.

3.  All exterior trusses, floor systems and interior wall panels are available in wood or light gauge steel.

4.  The only geodesic dome truss manufactured with the compound angles cut on the ends of the wood struts.

5.  The use of 10 sides on the ground level creates easier foundation layout.

6.  Door and window openings are pre-framed for conventional doors and windows on all 10 sides.

7.  The construction method is designed for one person to complete all phases.

8.  All components are light enough to be held in one hand.

9.  There is no need for the use of a crane or other mechanical lifts during construction of your geodesic structure.

10.  Many architectural options are available that other dome building manufactures do not offer..

-- Any exterior finishes are possible and available in your dome kit.
-- Any insulation can be used and any R-value can be achieved.
-- A ventilated exterior panel of plywood and ridged foam is available.
-- Any interior finish is possible and available in your dome kit.
-- The optional pre-finished T-beam frame creates a finished joint between panels.
-- Pre-finished interior drop-in panels are available, (any color, any material, any texture).
-- Any roofing and side wall finishes are possible and available.

11 - Many pre-cut, pre-fabricated and pre-manufactured dome building components are available.

--Pre-cut foundation and floor systems in wood or light gauge steel.
--Pre-fabricated interior wall panels in wood or light gauge steel.
--Pre-manufactured porches, patios, decks, stairs, cupolas and dormers.       Dome Kits .info

Spherical Geodesic Structures Continues to provide the most user friendly geodesic structures. Creating energy efficient, low cost housing has been the driving force to designing and engineering structurally sound geodesic structures with a novice owner build construction method.

There are very few geodesic dome building companies offering pre-fabricated geodesic structures. In the last 30 plus years most all dome kit companies have changed owners but not their products. There are only 3 or 4 different geodesic dome building construction methods. After building all other manufactures dome kits 3 or 4 times Spherical Geodesic Structures was compelled to design and engineer a faster and lighter construction method and to lower the cost of not only the dome kits but the cost and safety of the construction method.

The triangulated sphere is structurally superior in design to the box shaped structures. This should lead you to believe it would be less expensive to build. Most companies are only interested in selling their dome kits and not the finished building. Spherical Geodesic Structures believes it has designed the construction method and choices of materials to build the superior geodesic structure for LESS than box structures. We hope to share some of the unique advantages and differences  Spherical Geodesic Structures has over the rest of the design ideas in the world.
