The 56m2 dome with two floor net 75m2 is built in 2007 as a family house. The dome is very energy efficient, grid connected and with solar panels combined to a brick built stove. All building materials are certified and fulfill all demands on sustanability. 
Outside coverage can be made in environmental certified and impregnated pinewood from Superwood A/S or i.e. certified hard-wood. Insulation can be sheep- flax- or wood-wool or other nature material. With a proper insulation at 40cm and energy supply from solar collectors combined with an air/water heat pump, even ventilation with heat energy reuse, the dome can easily fulfill the passive house standard at 15kWh/m2/year and even reach a zero energy level.
