What to Start With
But what should they start with? What’s their first product – a Monolithic Dome home? That sounds far too complicated for most beginners.
We suggest the beginner start with one of our smaller, more easily managed to construct and to finance products, such as a Monolithic Rental Unit. Rental units are a very practical way to get into the dome-building business.
Monolithic Rental Units are a win/win! For working class Americans they provide disaster-safe, clean, affordable housing, and for the builder/owner they provide a steady income.
At www.DomeLiving.com there’s an informative video and far more data on Monolithic Rentals. Please review it.
Monolithic Storage Units are another good, starter product. I’m not talking about big fertilizer or cement storages, but small storages, such as those a farm could use. Many farms need and want a storage structure the size of a two-, three-, or four-car garage.
They could use them for storing grain or machinery and equipment – or they could function as a workshop.
Such structures can be built as Ecoshells, thin-shell concrete buildings that have a huge amount of merit. An Ecoshell can be built for the price of a metal building but will outlast that metal building by centuries.
Seriously, if you want to start a dome-building business – especially if you live in farm country – start talking to farmers about Ecoshells.
Point out the value of an Ecoshell as a chicken or hog barn. A metal building rusts if fertilizer is around it. But a Monolithic Dome or Ecoshell will last far longer, especially now that we’re using basalt reinforcing.
Again, if you want to get in the dome business, consider building Ecoshells. If you have one Airform and you take care of it, you can build 100 buildings with it. Obviously, they all have to be the same size, but with two or three Airforms you could build hundreds of buildings of different sizes.
