We recently received an email from reader Gregory all about EconOdome Home Kits. He plans on using his second stimulus check to pay down on some land where he can eventually build one of these awesome hurricane-resistant homes.
There are a lot of size and pricing options available on the website. For example, their higher-quality, fully-insulated 26-foot Econodome costs about $18,000 total, while their very basic 13′ model (sans insulation) comes in at only $1,300! All the options make it easy to buy a kit that fits within your budget and expertise.
You can learn a lot more about Econodomes and why to build them on their website here. I could spent a few hours on the site with all the research and options available! Check out some photos of just what you can do with their kits below…

Build Your Own Amazing Dome Home
These are 10-sided structures, with triangles connected to create the dome at the top.
Paneling finishes off the interior of this 26-ft-wide dome.
But you could also have a 13-foot-wide tiny dome!
Here’s a cross-section of the inside of a dome.
You get about 808 square feet of living space in a 26 foot model.
Here’s an example of how you can lay out your space.

And now it’s complete
- Info about and costs for 26’ 2V (two frequency) EconOdome frame, panel, and shingle Kits
- (fyi: Larger EconOdome Kits are made with a 4V (four frequency geodesic geometry).
- 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.
- here 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.
