My husband will be retiring from teaching in '14 and I always wanted to live on a lake, so we started looking for homes last year. I found a dome house on 5.6 acreas of lakefront in SWMO (Table Rock Lake) and flew back to see it. I have family in the area and Table Rock is my favorite lake so it was a win-win! I made an offer on it and we closed escrow in January.
This dome was owner-built and sat vacant for at least a year. The owner was elderly and his son was handling the sale long-distance with a local RE agent. Nobody wanted this house. My husband and I are in love with it!!
I started lurking here last year and learned alot about domes, even though ours was not a monolithic built structure, there are many things in common and I wanted to educate myself. Here are a few pictures. We just spent two weeks in July having the house power washed and coated with Benjamin Moore elastomeric.
The house has a 2-car attached dome with the kitchen between the garage dome and main dome. It is approximately 2300 SF of living space. 3 bedrooms, loft, 2 1/2 bath.
