Dome Homes Planned for Peru

An Idaho real estate investor will help the world go round when she breaks ground next February on 139 Monolithic Dome homes in Chiclayo, Peru. The project will be a first for Sube International LLC, which Lynda Eggimann founded earlier this year to build dome homes in the developing world.

Eggimann, who is based in Pocatello says she chose Peru for her first project because she has traveled there frequently over the past 15 years and has established key contacts that will help make her dream a reality.

“I have friends that I visited so often in Peru that I call them family,” Eggimann told the Idaho State Journal.

A Peruvian bank will finance the $1.2 million project by providing housing loans for qualified residents, who must earn less than $500 per month in order to qualify.
