I ran into this time-lapse video on the construction of a geodesic dome greenhouse and thought I’d show you.
It took the owner approximately four hours to put together and you get to see it being done in a couple of minutes.
Geodesic Dome Greenhouse
The windows that you see on it are hinged and covered with polythene along with a flashing strip on the top edges.
If you’re new to geo-domes, they were invented/popularized by R. Buckminster Fuller in the 1940s. One of my favorite authors, Lloyd Kahn, has covered them too.
These efficient structures can be used for living, working or gardening, but do they have too many drawbacks to be practical?

If you like geo-domes, I encourage you to:
Watch the time-lapse video below from YouTube. If you like what you see there is more information on domes over at Geo-Dome.co.uk.

Super clip on the dome…a green house is a good use. Interesting to see is there any advocate in this day and age. Thanks for posting
Thanks for checking it out, Jan, I’m glad you liked it!
You know, several times I have tried to contact Paul at Geo-Dome in the U.K. and he doesn’t answer any of my emails. Oh well.
Hey Rick- thanks for letting me know on that. I hope he gets back to you but if that’s the case then maybe I should think twice before sending people over his way..
Hi Alex, I am not sure the reason but let’s not worry about it. Perhaps it was just a glitch in the system. The guy does make some nice domes though. Take care and have a good day. 🙂
Hey, you too, Rick! Thanks 🙂
I want to see if with some green in it.
