What Are the Different Sizes Of Domes ?

Geodesic domes come in every size you can imagine, from a small backyard  dome tent to the size of a football field, you think of it and a  dome can hold it. At our dome variety is as vast as they come, our domes come in 2V,3V ,4V ,6V, And 8V dome series with varying diameters and dome heights within each series. Check out for our full list of options. The “V” represents the “frequency” of the dome or how many triangles the dome has in its structure, the higher the “V” the larger the dome. Now you might be thinking, “Well that’s nice, but are geo domes expensive?”

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a geodesic dome?

 We love our  domes so much we could talk about their advantages for as long as you’re willing to listen, but here is all you really need to know before choosing your own eco-friendly year round geodesic living space. Geo dome kits offer a reliable, safe, and waterproof living environment for any climate and can handle whatever nature can throw at it. Geodesic dome homes are resistant to high wind speeds, heavy rainfall, and snow. Worried about materials and cost? Domes enclose the highest volume of open interior living space with the lowest required surface area, which saves you money on material and cost. Dome interiors offer an excellent ability to naturally heat and cool your space by allowing air and energy to circulate freely throughout the structure, saving you money on electricity and saving the planet from wasteful energy use.

There are also some disadvantages to the dome-life that you should be aware of. Looking to build your own geodesic home, or plan on using another outside contractor? Well you may be kissing your savings on material waste and cost goodbye. While geodesic domes make great homes once built, getting them built isn’t easy. Monolithic domes are formed by a series of triangles that fit together creating a tight waterproof structure and the dome itself requires 30% less surface area than a conventional structure. Although, cutting triangles out of sheet material is very wasteful and costly. At Domespaces® we have maximized our manufacturing efficiency specifically for geodesic structures which allows us to maintain cost effective and eco-friendly construction. A similar problem you will run into in the geodesic construction process is fitting windows and doors onto your dome structure since conventional windows and doors are rectangles and don’t fit well with the geodesic triangle supports. That being said, our Domespaces® kits can be customized to efficiently fit your desired window and door designs seamlessly into the geodesic structure.

What are geodesic domes good for?

Monolithic domes are some of the strongest man-made structures available making them structurally superior to square homes. Geo domes are the only man-made structure that gets proportionally stronger as they increase in size. Geodesic dome shelters can withstand hurricanes, earthquakes, and heavy snowfall. Geodesic dome homes provide the homeowner a safer, cheaper and eco-friendly alternative to conventional homes.
