Surrounded by Nature’s Antiquity What a Site! — The Wortman dome home is surrounded by Rocky Mountain Bristlecone Pines. What a floor plan! — The home’s 4000-square-foot living area includes five bedrooms, four bathrooms, living/dining room, reading room, kitchen and laundry. It’s up! — After the Airform was inflated, friends and neighbors toured the inside and were amazed. Three more augments — Upon completion, the middle augment will become a door flanked by two very large windows. Looking like a giant walnut! — Because the Wortmans’ Monolithic Dome dream home sits at the edge of a cliff, wood, resembling a giant walnut, was used to block an augment so the Airform could be inflated. Three interconnected domes — Central dome has a diameter of 47 feet, while the domes on either side of it have a diameter of 36 feet. Spectacular view — At an elevation of 10,000 feet, from their dome-home in Fairplay, Colorado, the Wortmans have a gorgeous view of lakes and mountains. Continued progress — This picture shows the progress of ongoing construction. (Keith Wortman) Living room — It’s both comfortable and elegant. A chef’s delight! — This kitchen adds to the beauty and functionality of this home. Door on the right opens onto a 64-square-foot pantry. Welcome — Entries to Monolithic Dome homes can be whatever you want them to be. This one is designed to display western art. Dining room as seen from sunken living room. — Keith said, “I firmly believe that lighting makes a home comfortable. I designed all the lighting from what I saw in my dreams for almost 30 years. There are about 15 different combinations that can be used in just this dome alone.” Master bedroom — Sitting on top of 6 feet of vertical wall and overlooking the forest, this master bedroom is well over 200 square feet and superbly comfortable. Spare bedroom — If you like curves, this home will amaze you. No two rooms are the same and every room has exciting, curvy surprises. Dining room — It’s very large and open to the kitchen and both living rooms. Table seats ten comfortably, with room for additional entertaining tables and a large island. Note the paw print! — If you visit Bristlecone Dome in the winter, follow the bear to the front door.
