It’s Hip to Be Square, Unless You Want a Dome Home in Texas

By  | 

These days, when it comes to homes, it’s no longer one size, and even less one style, that fits all! The home of one’s dreams can be small and cozy or large and luxurious, and in these instances, it can also be round and geodesic. The popularity of dome homes is emerging as a Texas trend after designers and builders began recognizing energy efficiency options, disaster-proofing methods, and outright coolness of appearance in these classy and ultra-sleek dome domiciles. Here are a few examples we found lying ‘round:

Tornado, earthquake, and hurricane-proof, this design is one of the most durable on the planet. Requiring little long term maintenance, dome homes have a shape that negates the need to plan for high winds and can be constructed with concrete outer shells, able to withstand wildfires, hail, termites, and all the other outrageous things that Texas can throw at them!
