Just let me give you a few images here…imagine a floor made completely out of wine bottle corks.
The following info gives a construction overview of the American Ingenuity Panelized Dome Kit Workers are sponge finishing second layer of concrete in the seams between the panels.

Construction Process Video 3. To make weather tight, after all concrete work is done, the exterior concrete is watered down at least once a week to remove efflorescence for weeks.
Remove any algae with combination of bleach water or oxygenated bleach water and then exterior concrete is pressure washed. Next step is to apply white primer, seal any hair line cracks with patching compound and then paint the exterior with two layers of elastomeric paint. Do you have an engineering statement about your dome panels that can be submitted to my building department?
Yes, to view the statement click on Engineering. The American Ingenuity geodesic dome shell kit is designed with unique and practical materials. Ai developed simplified, effective construction techniques, invented a component panel and building system which created a home, that offers the ultimate in energy efficiency, strength and practicality.
Ai has been in business, with the same owners, since and has domes in 47 states and fifteen foreign areas. Onsite, the kit is assembled by lifting the panels into place with some type of hoisting mechanism, on to a temporary support skeleton, overlapping and locking the galvanized steel mesh in the seam areas.
Since our panels come pre-concreted, only the seam areas between the panels, along with and the entryways and dormers are concreted on site; resulting in reduced on site labor costs versus building a conventional house with separate materials to build the vertical walls and install roof trusses, plywood, tarpaper, shingles, insulation and drywall.
When assembled, the prefabricated panels produce all the structural components, the concrete roof, all the insulation and all the interior drywall for the dome shell. This warranty does not apply to a cupola, link, exterior framed wall areas, or exterior doors and windows.
Our panelized system does not contain wood framing ribs to interrupt our standard R28 insulation. There is no exterior wood to burn or rot or for termites to eat Pressure Treated wood is used to frame the walls under the entryways and dormers. FYI during kit assembly a temporary wooden rib system is assembled to support the panels.
When the kit is assembled, the dome is self-supporting and the rib system is removed. As an added bonus, there is no roof to blow off in high winds, and has a noncombustible fire resistant concrete exterior.

Whatever size floor plan you seek, whether for a modest starter home or a grand estate, American Ingenuity domes are flexible enough to adapt to your conditions. The dome kit can be a Do It Yourself project with panels assembled by owner builders or the home owner can hire a contractor who hires the independent kit assembly consultant.
