Exploring an Abandoned Geodesic Dome House | 31 Years Abandoned
In a tiny town in southeastern Ontario, along a small river overlooking an old mill the eager eye will spot this odd dome shaped home sticking out from the overgrown yard just above the treeline.
This odd home is a Geodesic dome and it has just been listed for sale having sat crumbling and abandoned since 1990.
Geodesic domes are growing in popularity among home buyers who want unique structures that can stand up to harsh weather conditions and natural disasters.
People also turn to these structures because they are more energy-efficient and cost-effective than traditional square homes.
Geodesic domes promote more efficient air circulation and keep temperatures even throughout the structure. This can make them two to four times more energy-efficient than traditional homes. These homes insulate very efficiently due to their unique shape.
Since light actually refracts and stays inside the dome, these structures are able to take full advantage of solar gain, which reduces the need for artificial lighting..
