AL.com recently posted a beautiful gallery and profile on one of the early Monolithic Dome homes and it’s owner, Chuck Peters. There are 33 beautiful shots of the house, but remember to click “Fullscreen” button below the picture.
Chuck chose to design his dome with the front “cut off” to create an open feeling to bring in natural light and space. Oak siding used to face the front was milled from trees on the property and the interior pine poles also came from his land.
There are seven levels inside this dome. Windows and doors are thoughtfully placed so that there is no need to turn on interior lights until the sun sets. Doors and windows can be opened to create cross ventilation for cooling. LP gas is used for cooking and supplying hot water. A small Jotel wood stove in the kitchen is useful for both cooking and heating.
