Little Domes by Faze Change Produx
Are Designed to be Low Cost and a Joy to Live In.
Little Domes by FCP are also designed to durable,
energy efficient, and safe in storms of all kinds.
Little Domes can also be made very fire safe, if you wish.
The round shape lets the storm blow around the building
instead of blowing the building over or catching it on fire.
Little Dome designs can be revised to be exactly as you wish, if you wish.

On Caribbean Islands and Midwest Plains
we fear high winds and heavy rains.
We want to be happy, well fed, and safe from harm.
So next to our productive organic farm
we build a little round charm,
Slightly larger than tiny and safer in storms...
A little dome home that eases our alarm.
Round homes built with EconOdome kits are engineered to be safe in high winds.
Large straps hold the the aerodynamic dome secure to the foundation at all ten corners.
The inside may be finished with all exposed wood.
This interior wood paneling is made from sheets of 1/2" raised wood paneling.
The ground level floor is easy to make
with some concrete and 13---8ft. long treated 4x6 beams.
Info about and costs for 26’ 2V (two frequency) EconOdome frame, panel, and shingle Kits
A hemispherical 4V EconOdome kit has 10 vertical trapezoids and 130 triangles.
The 26’ 2V EconOdome allows for larger skylights than a 4V dome because the triangles are larger.
The 26 ft. dia. 2V dome has 40 framed triangles made with 65 precision cut struts.
The longest strut length and triangle edge length is 8 feet.
Operable skylights aka roof windows can fit within any of the 40 large triangles.
The 8 ft. length works well with both conventional lumber lengths and 4’x8’ sheet sizes.
There is framing within each large triangular frame to better support the covering panels.
And, also to allow the large panels to be divided into smaller and easier to handle panels.
If you wish to complete your dome home quickly and also create a beautiful ceiling:
We recommend you consider building with an
EconOdome T-Beam frame kit.

with the help of "the force" of gravity.

This five sided cabin has an interior loft. The floor is built above treated telephone poles. Each of the five sides is 8 foot by 8 foot.
In order to build this building without a building permit in California,
this building needed to be portable (not built on a permanent foundation).
So, it was built above pre-cast piers and boulders.
After completion this building was put on skids so it could be moved.
A similar dome cabin was built with EconOdome Kits
over 20 years ago and now being utilized as a
unique AirBnB rental near the coast in California.
