Dome Homes Made from Inflatable Concrete Cost Just $3,500

Have you considered living an off grid life? Looking for a simple, inexpensive, eco-friendly way to live off the grid? These beautiful dome homes, or Binishells, are made from inflatable concrete, and they only cost $3,500 a piece. If you had enough land, you could even buy three or four of them and create your own mini off-grid village.

Based in Beverley Hills, California, the Binishells company believes in making beautiful, natural, and affordable housing with minimum impact on the environment. Binishell structures are possibly one of the most eco-friendly ways you can build. Their dome-like structure is highly-efficient providing people with a sturdy home that is also very fluid and can easily adapt to any environment. Their natural geometry is easily integrated into the land in which they are planted so much, in fact, that they can be as invisible or as visible as you would like them to be. They can be completely blended into the landscape if you choose to grow grass or other vegetation on top of them, lessening their small environmental footprint even further. Binishells are based on an ancient monolithic design and are safe structures to live within, standing up to earthquakes, tornadoes, and hurricanes simply because they are built with the earth rather than on top of it.

The reason why these shell structures are so inexpensive is because they are so easy to construct. They dont require as much labour as traditional housing designs, nor do they need as many building materials to make. The best news is that they dont cost very much too heat or to light, making them the ideal off-grid home. They are so versatile, theyre able to suit a variety of lifestyles. The can also be expanded and adapted according to what they are needed for garages, storage areas, low-cost housing, office buildings, industrial buildings, emergency shelters, retreats, resorts, and even institutional buildings like schools, libraries, and health clinics.

Off grid living refers to living off the grid, the vast interconnected framework of electrical cables, phone lines, water systems, natural gas, and so on, which hooks into most homes across in the western world. When you go off grid, you disconnect from the power grid and start using other sources of energy to heat, light, and water your home. Going off grid is an empowering experience because you are taking responsibility for your own energy sources. This of course includes growing your own food. What other energy sources can you turn to when you go off the grid? Solar power, wind power, and water power are three of the main ones being explored today, but natural energy sources dont stop there. These Binishell structures are perfect for off grid living because they are so energy efficient to begin with. They work with the thermodynamics of the earth and are therefore cheap and easy to heat in the winter time, while staying naturally cool in the summer. Their design also allows for lots of windows and skylights to let natural light flood inside, lessening your need for daytime lighting. They can also completely open up on one side, so you can expand your interior to the great outdoors at any time of the day or night.
