10 Energy Efficient Geodesic Dome Designs

Geodesic Treehouse Dome

It’s not hard to understand why the geodesic dome was a popular home design in the 60’s and 70’s. Geodesic domes require few building materials. They are energy efficient and incredibly stable. If you live in an area prone to earthquakes or hurricanes, a geodesic dome is the most secure structure you could build.

While the popularity of geodesic domes lapsed in the last few decades in response to stricter building codes (think stairways, fire escapes, chimneys and so on), they are starting to make a comeback. The beauty, efficiency and strength of the design cannot be faulted. These qualities make a dome a logical choice for a survival prepper building a new house. Here are 10 of our favorite geodesic dome designs.
