As the Easy Domes concept is rather un- traditional you might have some specific questions.
Here a few supplements:
The domes can be built in all climate zones and on basement in reinforced concrete as a plinth, a reinforced plate, on 10 stable stones - one for each corner, on posts in wood or steel - on land but also in shallow waters.
The domes can be covered out- and inside with any building material. Certain demands might occur to fire resistant inside materials.
The domes can be fully covered with soil and turf. Another possibility is to cover the wooden load construction with clay - the Cob-house principle.
What is an Easy Domes?
Easy built dome-house in 21 wooden sections ready for mount.
Where can buildings from Easy Domes be seen?
In the the capital on Faroe Islands, Torshavn, one big dome is owned by the Greenland Society on Faroe.Isl. Two cottages are seen north of Torshavn, in mountain area at 175m of height. In Denmark some domes are built for family purposes. In UAE some domes are built for beach spare time activities.
Which are the dome sizes manufactured?
Two dome sizes are offered as standard: 25m2 dome, and 56m2 dome. The big dome is 75m2 with a first floor.
What is the minimum order?
Minimum order will always be two units - container transportation has advantage by order of two units (25m2 dome) which fit into a 20 feet container. One big dome at 56m2 fits into a 20 feet container.
How to order, terms and time of delivery?
Order is made by signed contract and conditions for purchase, and delivery on FOB or CIF arrangements. See Purchase! Time of delivery will be minimum 3 months from order.
Is Easy Domes a Do-it-yourself-building kit?
It is quite easy to assemble and mount the wooden sections with iron bolts. The small dome can be erected by three men within some hours. The wooden sections for the bigger dome need a small crane because of their seize and weight. Home-builders can get big advantages in this building system, the load construction and its readiness for out- and inside building works.
Are special connectors or tools needed?
No special connectors are needed for assemble of the dome sections. The assemble is made with iron bolts and nuts, and only standard tools for wooden building work.
How long time will it take to build and Easy Dome?
When the 25m2 dome has been mounted on a plinth it can be built an finished for interior within 4 to 6 weeks. Two to three men can make the work. The bigger dome at 56m2 (75m2) can be built within 12 weeks.
Can Easy Domes fulfill building rules, standards and international codes?
The buildings sections are manufactured according to EU codes and standards, and marked as a registered product available for international market.
How does Easy Domes comply with demands to sustainability?
All building materials are wood and nature products, glass, aluminum, natural rubber a.m. Low-energy and passive house standards (max.15kWh/m2/year), - ventilated climate membrane - no inside humidity membrane (raincoat feeling) - electricity from renewals delivered to heat-pump, combined to solar heat as solar cells electricity.
Easy Domes in different climate zoned and nature conditions?
The products is transportable and easy moveable. Repairs for wood are easy to make, so a wide range of cultures can benefit of this. The highly simple and very strong building kit is implementable in all climate zones and can be built and practiced for a wide range of purposes. The load construction is calculated to stand wind speed at 100m/sec. (200m/hour) with one meter of wet snow on roof.
