    Yo Anita, you should check out the monolithic domes fromdown in Texas. They are the strongest and the warmest becasue of the shot-crete and sprayfoam sandwich that applies the thermal mass concept. Easy to heat and indestructable because I know you get a sh!tload of snow there, lol. Check ’em out on Google, monolithic domes. Very impressive…

    I am looking for an economical way to build a dome home for my son and myself, that will be strong and warm in Minnesota. I only need one floor and a fireplace in the center. I would like to grow fruits and vegetables and live simply, off grid, if possible. I like the look of the smooth domes, but don’t know which type is strongest. I would actually like to build it without a contractor.

    How about a medium impact model?
