I didn't start learning about dome construction until after I was running this forum. I had already been residing in the Philippines for a few / several years, at that time. 
 
Anyway, it seemed logical to me. You see, as a truck driver, I drove on the I-5 where the Santa Ana Winds would literally, lay big trucks on their sides. Well, they would do this to large box trucks. But, I happened to haul tanker trailers during those years. The air would just flow over and under those tanks, as smooth as silk, without causing me any problems on the interstate. I figured, once I began researching home building for an area of the world that so many Typhoons over the course of a year, I might as well consider building something that would withstand those high winds.


So to be clear, you're recommending a dome coming out of the ground, not a house like a wiener wagon? Your description of the tanker truck made me wonder if the house being described was cylindrical on its side or cylindrical vertically.

Looks like a nice design. With a few few strokes of the pen it can be enlarged with more bedrooms.

Err, uh, yeah Mike, that's it - kinda.

 

Maybe a one-bedroom version for me, though.

Right. Sorry for the confusion.

Right, 1BR/1BA - fine. 3BR/1BA would be an effin disaster. And where do the stairs go? It appears the main entry is into the bathroom?

First they came for the verbs, and I said nothing because verbing weirds language.  Then they arrival for the nouns, and I speech nothing because I no verbs.

Why do Americans need so many toilets?

Not uncommon 3BR/4BA,

I want more than 1 and if you have 3BR you probably need 3 but you want 4 and think American's want too many?
