Imagine if you bought a dome home to live in becuase you thought it would be the most efficient way for you to afford a home that would last a long time and use the least amount of energy. Now imagine what the neighbors would say in this republican country of ours. Even more practical in thought would you be able to have a resale value if you needed to sell it? Once you start changing the design to fit the more traditional look you have just defeated your purpose of low cost. So is the dome home only for 3rd world countries or is it also for us? Of course you will have your own aesthetic preferences but a practical person rests on longevity. As the world population increases and resources get more scarce efficiency in design becomes more important. What are your thoughts of living in a sustainable home?
