We'd love to hear from you.....call us at 205 758 1996 with questions.


Why on EARTH would I want to build a dome home? Is it worth my effort to try?

You may be considering a dome for a number of reasons, but how do you sort the myth from the truth about domes? 50 years of building them has taught us a few things that might help you decide. The advantages in living in a dome far outweigh any struggle to build one! Any dome owner will tell you that.

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 total electric 4045 sq ft double dome for ONE YEAR! We keep it 67 degrees inside during the summer.


Peace of mind in storms!

OUR residential domes are rated for 250 mph winds. You read that correctly.

One of our domes survived the Weather channels 3rd worst tornado outbreak. April 2011 direct hit by an F5. More on the "tornado and shelters" page...


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?



Hurricanes?? Our domes shrug those off!   These domes after hurricane Alicia, a Texas F4, and Katrina which was inundated 12' and was the only structure left in a forest of pilings!

They only look like a million bucks!


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

Our domes have been verified by two mathematical theories, a RISA computer simulation and a live structural crush test at the University of Alabama large structure testing labs. These tests were conducted by the International Code Council (ICC), the authority that develops the building codes. The ICC took five years to issue our report, which involved engineers from all over the world.

 We are the only dome company with these credentials!
   Don't be fooled by other dome companies that claim they are "as good or strong as ours". They are simply...how should we put it...dishonest?
   We have undergone the most rigorous testing criteria in the industry and passed them all. No other dome company has done the same. We can provide the report content to qualified entities upon request.

Your community may qualify for a Low or NO COST public facility that also serves as a FEMA rated tornado shelter.

Our new facilities have been inspected by USDA representatives and they have confirmed that New Age Domes are eligible for grants for multi-use buildings such as fire stations, community centers, etc. These buildings can serve more purposes than just tornado shelters and can receive more funding than the current FEMA grants in the same communities. This is a new opportunity for grant writers and small towns to have multi-use buildings that are more than just hiding places! Federal Grants are also available for mobile home parks with more than 20 residents in low to middle income areas, as well as assistance for our personal sized shelters (also on this site) for those who are disabled or unable to access public shelters in their community.


History is made in Tuscaloosa Alabama on July 21,2016 with the issuance of building permits to New Age Domes for the city's first FEMA 361 G tornado shelter. 2 long years later...Our factory/shelter is built on the very ground cleared by the April 27th F-5 tornado that devastated Tuscaloosa, with more than 50 fatalities. It will hold approximately 750 of my neighbors, several whom have keys, and have already used it for emergencies. We have also offered its use with a first responder on site to the Tuscaloosa EMA for the public's use. See more on the site and be sure to visit Facebook @ New Age Domes

Financial news for prospective dome owners. Mostly...It sucks.

So many domes were built incorrectly by owners in the 70's and 80's, bought from a magazine with no support, the dome industry has a huge smudge on its image. They are perceived by lenders as being leak prone or problematic. 

                                         Professionally built and supervised domes are another creature entirely!  Many lenders have preconceived notions about domes and may reject a loan application for a dome without doing proper research or considering our credentials. This is due to the herd mentality that makes them say no to a dome before evaluating its merits. They may also have heard horror stories about owner-built, cupola-less domes and be reluctant to lend on a geodesic dome for various reasons. The most common reason is the lack of comparable properties. However, Fannie Mae guidelines address this issue very clearly. They suggest adjusting the percentage of participation in the down payment.

Freddie Mac actually gives domes a better position because of the energy efficiency. The other most often quoted reason for a NO, offered by appraisers is calculating the useful square footage in a dome.

It's a simple formula. Call us if they can't figure it out!

We have been approved for VA ,USDA, FHA, and HUD  long term financing

Just a few positive lenders include Quicken loans, USAA , Loan Depot, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Texas Gulf federal credit union, Compass Bbva, and adding more every month. Home Promise has joined the ranks of dome specific lenders but they aren't nationwide just yet.

I get calls from dome owners who mention they are having trouble getting insurance on their domes. It is NOT an issue for a professionally built New Age dome. Getting quotes this month on my personal dome and Allstate, Alfa, and Hartford had zero issues with our product or domes we have upgraded.



Lovely view from the dock on Lake Oconee


These folks had to add a second parking lot within 2 weeks of opening their doors.

A word from our founder

This website is all about plain speech. My blunt and often NOT politically correct words genuinely reflect the anguish and frustration I feel after PROVING the unprecedented strength of this product for decades, then again to the highest authority in the building world, and still see people continue to die in traditional homes, when this option is readily available. Mother nature doesn't care if she drops a tree on you in your bedroom in the middle of the night and kills you. Mother nature doesn't care if she destroys your home. Mother nature is having more temper tantrums these days.Why not defend your life and that of your  family in the strongest home you can build? 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 why people only build , (and rebuild after major storms) boxes... and that’s kind of the idea! Most people who tour our domes say the same things,"this just makes sense".

NEW AGE domes aren’t “hippy houses”, nor do they look like a 6th grade science project.

As seen on ABC 33/40https://www.facebook.com/abc3340,WVTM Birmingham, Tuscaloosa News, Wvua, CNN, Bob Van Dillon and Allison Chinchar of HLN, Jim Cantore of The Weather Channel has even weighed in,and a few we haven’t seen….

Building domes since 1971
