The back of the Whiteacre’s Monolithic Dome Home is as majestic as the front. A beautiful curving sidewalk echoes the lines in the dome.

The Monolithic Dome’s back patio area features a hot tub and pool, two waterfalls, seating areas with several chairs surrounding a fire pit, a dome-shaped pizza oven which was constructed to match the houses stone-like exterior and a large, covered grilling area. There is also a guest dome and a composting ball.

A sectioned stone walk leads to the Monolithic Dome guest house which is next to a composting ball. From there, guests can make their way up to the covered grilling area and toward the pool.

The Monolithic Dome Home’s entryway is dramatic and open all the way to the top of the dome. A grand staircase curves elegantly up to the second floor. Beneath the staircase, water gurgles in a rectangular, rock-covered fountain.

The view from the railing on the second-floor hallway of the Whiteacre’s Monolithic Dome Home overlooks the entirety of the front foyer. The expertly built staircase follows the curve of the dome and the rectangular, rock-covered fountain beneath the staircase can be appreciated.

The stained glass window above the front door of the Monolithic Dome Home can be seen clearly from the second floor railing. This window was a gift from the Whiteacre’s children who designed it themselves. The details in the design have special meaning to the Whiteacre family.

Are we still inside a dome house? The traditional layout of the dining room as it leads to the kitchen area, almost completely conceals the fact that the Whitacre’s reside within the curves of a Monolithic Dome.

Beautiful cabinetry and countertops enhance the spacious kitchen on the main floor. The gently curving exterior wall, combined with the traditional interior walls give this room, in the Monolithic Dome, a more conventional feeling.

Some creativity is needed when building a Monolithic Dome and the Whiteacre family found ways to use the curved walls of their Monolithic Dome Home to their advantage. Here, an angled jacuzzi tub makes the most of small corner space within a downstairs bathroom.

The upper section jutting out above this room was constructed in order to ensure the water sprinkler would reach across the entire room in case of fire. The decorative moose head helps downplay the serious need for the add-on but it also highlights a need to use creative planning when designing your dream Monolithic Dome Home.

The beauty of Whiteacre’s Monolithic Dome Home and the surrounding curvature of the landscape invite guests in for a unique and memorable visit. Most importantly, however, is the well thought out design that always welcomes the Whiteacre family home to their dome.
