    Saw this in the parking lot yesterday. They have one of these domes setup and partially furnished inside with a loft and a solar panel.

    Don't know the price but I imagine after looking at it I would guess $10 to 15K.

    The web site says they manufacture these in CA and OR. Seems worth checking into.

    Here is my truck parked about 25' from the deck. Pretty good size.

    Personally I wouldn't want a dome... I'd prefer something like www.greenboxpdx.com

    but that's preference based :)

    A couple of cargo containers aligned properly would suit very well.

    I think there is a place off of I205 just north of the Clackamas Town Center that manufactures these. They have one on top of the building to advertise.

    I believe one of the main reasons for the revival of the 'dome' with the off-the-grid movement, is the fact that the curved structure will deflect/ survive hurricane strength wind gusts. Most convential 'boxes' will not.

    There's a company that converts shipping containers into apartments. Google "shipping container apartments"

    Those containers are very cool too!
    I like the dome tho for what its intended purpose is: durable, low cost & energy efficient. According to the website, the parts are modular & you could dissasemble your dome & move it in a pickup truck to a new spot if needed.

    i would personally rather have a 30' yurt similar to what you can find here

    http://www.yurts.com/

    either way, you're building your loft/walls/rooms off the platform

    I'll have to swing by. Maybe Sports Authority has ammo on sale - nah, more likely I'll find a gold coin in the parking lot :)

    Wal-mart in Puyallup is well stocked except for the bulk .22 LR packs.

    So maybe you will get lucky!

    Yurts are cool, but I like the Grizzly Bear resistant design of the dome! :)
