The Dome

  The first incarnation of my organic farm was beautiful and very productive, but hardly self-sustaining. It has been obliterated, giving me an opportunity to start over from scratch. 
  My cousin Walter gets full credit for this highly efficient low-cost dome style home. The goal is to create a self-sustaining lifestyle, with the option of selling excess goods at the farmers market. 
  This well-engineered dome is made of concrete and iron rebar and is insulated 360° on all axes. It is easy and low-cost to maintain, and the cost of heating and cooling is a minimum. In addition to that, it is super fun to live in!

The Bridge

This bridge was built between the old trailer and the new dome.

The Trailer

  I was in the process of moving into the dome and snugly asleep in the dome on the morning of April 5th, 2018, when the propane stove in the trailer exploded. I had no insurance, and over 90% of my stuff was still in the trailer, so the personal loss was terrible. Further, my 17-year-old cat Legolas did not survive. 
  I am glad that I was in the dome when it went off, or I would almost certainly have perished as well. This was only the first time that my life was saved by the dome. 

Thank You, Walter!
