If you want a rock solid home that will survive high winds and maybe a 8.0 earthquake or two and pay a very small price to put up the structure, then a Geodesic Dome is right for you. Warning: building the interior walls may drive you crazy! Popularized by R. Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller, who gave it its name and worked out the mathematics. The most famous dome is Spaceship Earth at Epcot in Disney World. They were popular from the 1960s through around 1990. If this is what you’re looking for, you may not find one to buy. Best bet: buy a nice lot and a really good compound miter box!
