How To Build An Indestructible Off-Grid Home (That Will Survive Tornadoes, Hurricanes And Wildfires)

Every year homeowners along the coast prepare for hurricane season, praying one doesn’t hit their region. In other parts of the country, they’re preparing for tornadoes, and out West, for wildfires and even earthquakes.

But what if you could build a home that was pretty much indestructible – that would survive a direct hit from a hurricane or tornado, and even withstand a wildfire or major quake?

That’s the idea behind “dome homes,” which are growing in popularity among not just off-gridders but everyday Americans. This week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio is David South, the president of Monolithic Domes, which builds dome houses and teaches others how to do the same.

South tells us:

  • Why dome homes can withstand tornadoes, hurricanes and wildfires.
  • What it’s like to watch a tornado come directly at you when inside a dome house — and survive (as South did).
  • Why dome homes are more energy-efficient than other homes.
  • Whether building codes can get in the way of constructing a dome home.
  • How dome homes are made.

South also tells us about the latest advances in dome technology, including a “dome greenhouse” that can grow food even in the coldest weather. And he describes how dome houses are often used to build underground homes.
