TOMORROWS HOUSING TODAY!
Why on EARTH would I want to build a DOME?
A well-built dome is a safe, energy efficient and inexpensive home to build and maintain.
Building an environmentally friendly geodesic dome is your next step. 50% energy savings on average vs regular homes. Leaving money that would have been paid to the utilities for the back end of a mortgage.
Energy bills are unbelievable. $1805.00 on a 4045 sq ft double dome for ONE YEAR!
Peace of mind in STORMS:
OUR residential domes are rated for 250 mph winds.
One of our domes survived the Weather channels 3rd worst tornado outbreak. April 2011 direct hit by an F5. More on the site...
Why do people who are affected by today's increasingly violent weather think a safe room is the answer? Why not have your life and your belongings intact in a New AGE dome?
YOU'RE ENTIRE HOME IS YOUR SAFE ROOM
How can we help?
Whether we build it FOR you....
Or help you build it with your own people....
Simply the SAFEST home in any weather
ER 3419 issued March 6 2016 after a 5 year review, is our official documentation that our claims, engineering, and decades of dedication to building safer domes has been officially certified in the building codes. This is your assurance that our geodesic domes have been scrutinized for structural integrity, engineering, and quality by the most exacting peer review process in the construction industry. The International Code Council are the people who make the building code laws.NO other dome company has these ICC credentials!
So in asking for your business we want our clients to know, we've been accredited in 4 ways. 2 math theories, a RISA computer model, and a crush test at The University of Alabama, and only THEN did we receive ESR 3419.
Most people say who tour our domes say the same things,"This just makes sense!"
Why depend on public shelters during our increasingly violent weather when you are safe in your NEW AGE dome?
BUT IF YOU DO.....we have that covered too.
Important information for communities looking for grants for tornado shelters. You may qualify for a NO COST public facility that serves as a tornado shelter.
USDA representatives have recently inspected our new facilities and confirmed that New Age Domes qualify under current programs for grants for multi use buildings such as fire stations, community centers etc. This multi use capability offers more money than current FEMA grants for tornado shelters in these same communities. Many grant writers are familiar with current rules but this is a whole new opportunity for your small town to have a multi use building that's more than just a place to hide!
These programs are in place at this time, and cooperative programs may apply multiple grant funds to the same facility.
History is made in Tuscaloosa Alabama on July 21,2016 with the issuance of building permits to New Age Domes for the worlds first FEMA 361 G tornado shelter made of multiple layers of layered plywood over STEEL PLATE.
2 long years later...We still have some trim to do but both domes are storm safe at this time.
It will hold approximately 800 of my neighbors, several of whom have keys and have already used it for emergencies. When final touches are complete, we plan on turning it over to Tuscaloosa EMA for a public tornado shelter.

Be prepared to fight for your desire to live in these ultra strong and spacious, energy efficient homes.
Most bankers have a difficult time lending on a geodesic dome for a variety of reasons.
"Lack of "comps" is the most often quoted reason. Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac guidelines deal with domes like any other issues, including lack of comps, very specifically. You adjust the percentage of participation in the down payment. There is a formula for figuring sq feet in a dome, accurately, just like any other shape building. It allows for a fair appraisal when calculated properly. Some bankers and appraisers will do their homework.
More national banks are now accepting New Age domes for financing because of our ICC credentials. These include Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Texas Gulf federal credit union, Compass Bbva, and USAA,.
We are approved for USDA, and VA long term financing.
We now have new sources for construction loans with your long term take out credentials

Lovely view from the dock on Lake Oconee
These folks had to add a second parking lot within 2 weeks of opening their doors.
As you go through our site you’ll see unedited reference letters from clients, lots of photos, and plenty of sights to make you wonder, what if ?, and that’s the idea! NEW AGE domes aren’t “hippy houses”, nor do they look like a 6th grade science project. They are a modern crossover between traditional housing and a more efficient shape to build. With storm shelter capabilities and unheard of energy efficiency built in.
This website is without Bucky quotes, special effects, or meaningless charts. Nor do we employ publicists or media specialists to extol our virtues. Our clients do that on their own…
As seen on ABC 33/40https://www.facebook.com/abc3340,WVTM Birmingham, Tuscaloosa News, Wvua, CNN, Bob Van Dillen of HLN, Jim Cantore of The Weather Channel has even weighed in,and a few we haven’t seen….
