The ultra-conventional Zillow web site has given the thumbs up to off the grid living, featuring a dome home in its pages.

The home, from Monolithic domes is just 320 square feet – cheap to heat cool and maintain, but amply priced at $74,000, given the cost of similar homes in the area.

Monolothic dome homes are made by inflating a balloon and then smearing a PVC coating on top of that.

The dome is in the Taos area of New Mexico, feature in my book OFF THE GRID – Inside the Movement for More Space Less Government and True Independence in Modern America.

The story also features John Kejr, a local Realtor, notorious for the high prices he seeks on behalf of his clients.
