You can live in Hawaii for only $70,000 in an eco dome!
This is a disaster resistant, hurricane and earthquake resistant dome like, clay house covered with waterproofing, and stucco. Built from local earth-filled Super Adobe coils of finely ground cinder, blue rock and cement, meant to last for many generations. It is tree free. The main dome and four niches function as the bedroom, bathroom, shower and closet. This dome is is approx. 324 sqft.
Designed by world renowned, now deceased, California architect, Nader Khalili. He designed these structures to be in harmony with nature. It was introduced at NASA's symposium in '84 on how to build on the moon and Mars.
The house is cooled by a wind scoop oriented to the trade winds for maximum efficiency. The finished dome structure will have concrete floors which can be kept as is or tiled. The walls are 16 to 18" thick.
The owner is intent on providing affordable housing while preventing global warming.
The owner used a milk and lime base for painting the inside, in order to avoid using any toxic paint.
For $70,000.00 you can get out of the cold, and live in Hawaii in a eco-friendly and completely non-toxic home.
