Open House to Benefit Helping Hands of Yuma
Local Monolithic Dome Home Open for Tours on Saturday, February 7th

YUMA, Arizona (February 3, 2009) – One of most unusual homes in Yuma will once again be open for tours as part of a charity fundraiser. The Monolithic Dome home, known as Yumadome, will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 7th. Admission is $10 per person, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Helping Hands of Yuma. Yumadome is located at 10360 S. Ave 5E in Yuma.

The three-story dome home measures more than 11,500 square feet. It has eight bedroom suites that house four generations of one family, as well as a large atrium and community kitchen.

Monolithic Domes are round, steel-reinforced concrete buildings known for their energy efficiency, durability and strength. They can cost as much as 50 percent less to heat and cool than traditional structures of the same size, and are strong enough to withstand tornadoes, hurricanes and even earthquakes.
