10 FOOT DIAMETER THIN SHELL CONCRETE DOME
THE MONOLITHIC ECOSHELL

After extensive research, this is the BEST design based on the strongest, most efficient building methods and materials. it can withstand earthquakes and hurricanes.

 

Low-cost and eco-friendly, it is easily built with a minimum of reusable tools and easily learnable skills.
