The dome-construction

Small domes 25 m2 to 40 m2 can be build by manpower, while bigger domes need a crane for lift of the wooden sections.

  • The procedure is to set a quadrangle and hexagon to each other on the plinth, put iron bolts through predrilled holes, and mount the elements to each other.
  • Next all the base-sections and ongoing wall/roof sections are mounted.
  • The dome is adjusted and fit to the plinth before full tightening.
  • The dome is mounted to the plinth with iron bolts.


The windows are designed to fit the dome-window sections, and are mounted with attention to connect to the aluminum flashing and dome wall/roof cover.

Windows certificate
The windows are in hard wood, mahogany, or pine, with double energy glass and U-values at 0,1.

Windows and doors are handmade at jointers workshop and delivered within the conditions for the provision of works and supplies within building sector, AB92.

Energy and climate

The Easy Dome house has a good inside distribution of fresh air and heat. With proper natural insulation materials as sheep-wool, flax, wood or paper, and a proper ventilation of the outside climate membrane, the housing climate conditions get optimal.

With only certified and natural materials on the inside walls, and the use of the heavy and proper natural insulation, the traditional humidity membrane can be avoided making the walls be able to breathe and clean the inside air. Natural insulation materials at 300 – 400 mm are needed to minimize heat loss and fulfill energy demands.

Floor can be 300 mm presure resistant insulation beneath an 100 mm concrete floor and build up wooden floor.

The building system makes an highly hermetic house, and has been tested to leak 0,01 Litre/m2/sec. (maks.1,5L). A ventilator 160 m3/h is suggested in top of  large domes.

Air to water heat pumps combined to solar-collectors are very efficient. PV-solar cells and integrated roof panels with batteri-storage are available on market.

Aluminum flashing

The aluminum flashing in 0,8 mm is designed to fit to the type/dimension of the wall-cover, as to the windows and the roof. The aluminum is mounted with screws with washer and gasket.

Building the dome

When the base / plinth is finished, the dome can be erected and mounted with windows and aluminum flashing. Outside cladding, roofing a.m. is traditional wood-building following sanitary, heat, water and electrician works a.m.:

  • Outside wall coverage with wood-boards or solid plate.
  • Roof build and mount of gutters and downpipes.
  • Inside insulation, wall-framework and cover.
  • Flooring with heat panels, partition walls and loft rooms.
  • Technical installations for water, sewerage, ventilation, energy, cable and pipes a.m.
  • Interior equipment kitchen, bathroom and

From basement to final top

When all preparations for basement are finished and ready for mounting of the dome, the work is quite easy to make when the first two sections are put on the plinth and mounted to each other.

This continues all the way round by mounting iron bolts through predrilled holes, even not with a final tightening. Pentagon window- and wall sections are put in place,  followed by 5 roof- hexagon sections.

And the final top is the pentagon. When all 21 sections are adjusted the iron bolts can be tightened.

  1.  The first section – heavy, but moveable.
  2.  First two sections on plinth.
  3.  A crane is needed for lift of sections.
  4.  Mounting iron bolts.
  5. Final pentagon roof-section.
  6.  Inside framework and cover with plywood.
