This is Ella and Doug’s Catskill Bungalow and their Dome in Hensonville, New York. They’ve owned their tiny house, which they’ve named the Catskill Bungalow, since 2005.

So later they built a geodesic dome as an additional structure on the property. Now they’re able to earn income by renting them out as vacation rentals. Here’s our interview with them below along with a photo tour of their tiny homes. Enjoy!

Earlier I showed you the astronomical cabins at Hotel Elqui Domos which are in the same location I’m showing you these astronomical domes for star gazing.

Right now I want to focus in on these awesome dome cabins that can sleep up to four people. Inside you’ll find a fireplace, heater, bunk beds, living area with plenty of seating, kitchenette area, and a full bathroom for your convenience.

When Hotel Elqui Domos in Elqui, Chile wanted to renovate their seven astronomical domes and add several astronomical cabins for their star gazing guests they hired Rodrigo Duque Motta Architects for the job.

The cabins are definitely NOT tiny, and hardly small, at approximately 1765 sq. ft. each. But I still thought the design was inspiring and could be used for inspiration on a smaller scale. And the existing dome renovations are in fact small (and both are just awesome), as you’ll get to see below.

This modern dome home looks like an alien spacecraft.

It was built in 1969 and the design was later features in a January 1975 issue of Popular Science.

Incredibly enough it’s designed to withstand up to 250 mph of wind!

And inside you’ll find just about everything in a regular home. In fact, this is a 3-bedroom house!

There’s a living room, full kitchen, bathroom and patio.

The Dome Garden is a unique place to stay. It’s located in Coleford, Gloucestershire in the United Kingdom.

What’s there to do there? Besides being surrounded by nature and tranquility, it sits between two famous rivers that are known for great canoeing and fishing.

And it’s two hours away from London.

There’s an interesting group of geodesic domes that can house two to six people each in the middle of the ancient Forest of Dean.

One of my favorite parts besides the peaceful setting is the domes. They have windows and are self-contained.

Plus there are a few different sizes to choose from in case you’re going alone, for a romantic getaway, or with the whole family…

There’s a 20ft with a shower, 24ft with a bath, and a luxurious 20ft with a spare bedroom dome. All of them have their own place to shower or bath and the water is heated by wood burning stoves. And yes, toilets are in there too.

In addition each one has its own kitchen with fridge and food. Then there is something they call the “dome-itory”, it’s a 24ft dome that can sleep up to ten people with privacy in their own little “cocoons”.

See picture at the bottom of post!
