Earth-Sheltering Geodesic Domes FOr
Geodesic Earthworks, LLC brings together for the first time two very innovative building technologies: The Geodesic Dome and Earth-sheltered housing.
let us build your dream home
Conventional home design is inherently inefficient. It consists of constructing a very expensive box. This box or cube has five of its six sides directly exposed to the extremes of weather. And it is hurting us: open-ended energy costs being a major consequence. This notion that home design starts with a 'cube' is automatic. We rarely question it and in so doing, we carry design flaws at the expense of design innovation into the future.
In the Northeast, the outside wall of that box might be -20 in January and +100 in July. But we'd like the inside wall to be 70 degrees throughout the year and we spend (unnecessarily, we contend) to get it.
It may take the form of ongoing expensive heating and cooling costs or retro-fitting that structure with energy-saving appliances, additional insulation, or wood stoves. Ultimately, we are dealing with an inherently inefficient design. Couple this with the loss of the American Dream of home ownership over the last few decades and it's easy to conclude that people, seeking a practical alternative, are ready for such an innovation as the Geodesic Earthworks Building System.
