Straight from Tatooine comes the Eco-Dome (small house, “moon-cocoon”).

Here are some features.
1. Built from local earth-filled Superadobe coils (soil-cement or lime-stabilized earth).
2. Tree free.
3. Maximum use of space through alternative options.
4. Self-contained single unit (potential for a guest house or studio apartment) or double unit (larger family residence).
5. Can be repeated and joined together to form larger homes and courtyard houses.
6. Can be built by a team of 3-5 persons.
7. Designed with the sun, shade and wind in mind for passive cooling and heating.
8. Wind-scoop can be combined with a rated furnace unit, depending on local code approval. Solar energy and radiant heating may be incorporated.
9. Interior furniture can be built-in with same material.
Price: $2,400 for a single unit (400 sq. ft. approx), $3,200 for double unit (800 sq. ft. approx.)

    Love this eco-dome India especially in Gujarat/Rajasthan with arid weather conditions… most of the rural homes are constructed with mud.
    Love the rustic feel:-)

    Wow, I can’t believe the price! Totally green home, I think you have solved the Earth’s housing problem. They are fine looking homes, I hope there is a way to waterproof them for more northern climates. Congratulations and well done! Best Regards, Rick

    Would you send me information about how to contact the people who can build it in Puerto Rico???.

    i simply adore this house, it’s just fantastic. My question is though: How would you go about building something like this in the UK? When you consider that for most of the year England is somewhat damp, i would imagine that may have some effect on the matrials used or the Matrials you are able to use? Is there a protective skin i.e. Limewash (probably a bad example) that could be used?
