Our dome is supplied as a panelized kit from Oregon Dome. It arrived on a large truck, driven by Keith, "the best truck driver in the whole world." We are covering it with a tarp until the dome raising date. Oregon sends out a few people to erect it for us, and we'll help assemble it.

We chose a standard plan, the "Otte", a 39' simple dome with no extension kits, a couple dormers, and ample space. It's 2600 sq/ft of livable space divided into 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and several other areas: kitchen, living, dining, den, etc. Check out our plans page for detailed info.

It cost us around $30K+ for the kit and $7K+ for the permanent wood foundation.
