ECO DOME

This is a one of a kind, breathtaking, environmentally friendly, double geodesic dome home. This 8,494 sq. ft. double dome home uses the wind, sun, and earth for pollution free, highly efficient heating and cooling, with electricity being provided by solar panels and wind turbines and heat by a geothermal source (pond coils). The two connected multi-level domes are well equipped to provide you with a waste-free, fuel-free, pollution-free, highly insulated and highly energy efficient home. With this high efficiency, utility cost can be an average of 30% of the cost of a typical home of the same size. Enjoy gorgeous natural hardwoods and native red oak flooring throughout the space. The property has a large pond out back (geothermal source), along with a green house dome, a shed, and an above ground buried cellar. The domes are bright, open, with a lot of light and woodwork. The home is 0.9 mile from the public access to Upper South Long Lake and 4.7 miles from the public access to South Long Lake. Both lakes have tremendous fishing for all species: Panfish, Bass/Northern, and Walleye.

Features

This double geodesic dome has 5 bedrooms and 2.13 acres of land. Zoned residential, it is presently used as a vacation home. The house has a parking lot with 10 parking spaces and an attached garage (1660 sq ft) with space for 4 cars. The 2 domes have an internal connection, and are a total of 8,494 sq ft. This geodesic double dome home was built between 1997 and 2002 as a showroom for environmental technologies by a business owner who spent well over $1.8 million in the materials and clean technologies to create this unique eco-friendly structure. Let’s visit the domes! Relax a moment at the softly cascading waterfall at the entrance, then step inside. At the entry door, you can access the main living space dome on the left and the garage and showroom hall on the right. In the back, find a huge beautiful deck overlooking the pond and the forest around it. Now walk into the main dome living area. You are enveloped in light and the smell of wood. The large living room is bright, open and inviting and offers a great entertaining space. The open floor plan gives you many opportunities for creating your own living spaces. Visit the Cedar bedroom and the Ocean theme bathroom with a shower. A staircase takes you up to the upper level with 4 bedrooms (Birch, Aspen, Pine and Ash) and a full bathroom with a tub. Savor the view, then visit the master bedroom (Birch) and the other 3 bedrooms. Sleeping in these bedrooms gives you the sense of sleeping under the stars because of the skylights in each room. Then take the spiral staircase to the observation deck. Go back down to the lower level of the dome with a large kitchen, a 2 room sound recording studio, a large office and a vault/server room. Go back up and walk on the gorgeous deck and down to the pond area. Visit the greenhouse dome, then take a walk around the pond, and feel the magic of this place!

Unique Features:

• There is a small pond with a fivefold water cascade in front of the house, with Mountain Stream flow forms, sculpted by John Wilkes, world renowned artist from the UK. Water Features: The flow form has a figure eight pattern, generating a series of vortices (whirlpools) which pulsate rhythmically. This action cleans and oxygenates the water in a natural, soothing manner.

• Main Pond: This larger pond is 60’ x 90’, holds over a million gallons of water and is 14’ deep. The pond is fed by the well on the property. There is a floating dock which stays in permanently and is used for sunbathing.

• Heating/Cooling: Forced Air and In-Floor Geothermal: This energy efficient system uses electricity and water (from the pond & earth), therefore, no fuel is burned and no pollution is created. Property has an outdoor wood boiler as a back-up.

• Wind Power: A wind generator tower on the property, Jacobs 31-20 Wind System, 20 KW, creates electricity for the utilities and appliances, and allows to sell the extra electricity generated to the local electricity company Crow Wing Power.

• Lighting: Energy efficient LED and CF bulbs produce a soft natural light. The Halo Power Track System is durable and features a convenient two circuit system.

• Refrigeration: The geothermal walk-in cellar (an underground dome) is an energy-efficient natural refrigerator kept cool by the earth. The humidity and temperature are controlled with adjustable ventilation and the steel sub-structure acts as a Faraday cage in screening out cosmic radiation. This cellar is designed to allow temperature and humidity controlled storage for fine wines, canned goods, fresh vegetables, and fruit.

• Composting Toilets: A large composter (in the utility room on the lower level) offers a waste management system that conserves water and prevents the pollution of waterways. The compost toilets produce odor-free, pathogen-free compost fertilizer for the enrichment of the earth’s soil.

• Construction: Wood Frame Geodesic Dome

• Fiber-optic internet connection, category 5 wiring, telephone and co-axial cables are connected to virtually every room in the domes, allowing for cutting edge systems for safety, communications, and media/entertainment.

• Foundation: Permanent Wood Foundation (PWF) is made from wolmanized pressure-treated wood. PWF does not crack.

• Insulation: 21” Thick Super-Wall with 18” of fiberglass, creating an R-value of 66. The cellulose insulation is thermal resistant, a sound reducer, as well as fire-retardant and pest resistant.

• Exterior and Interior: Cedar

• Flooring: Native red oaks and other hardwoods harvested from the area.

• Roof: Asphalt Shingles

• Skylights: Triple-Pane with a low “E” coating and argon gas options

• Decking: 671 sq ft, made with recycled plastic lumber (Trex) which will not rot, sliver or crack and contains a UV inhibitor. The deck offers beautiful and peaceful area for playing, dining and socializing, overlooking the main pond.
