I went to an eco-show weekend on June 10/11 and saw this geodesic fixture >www.domecompany.com.au.< which I have now become infatuated with. I have the “perfect” site to place this structure and build a straw-bale home either side. My question centres around getting thermal mass into the dome – where I am thinking of placing this dome is atop a plateau with views down a gully to a dam… it faces due north-east and catches the first fingers of early winter sun….. thermal mass in this location would be important in warming the whole dwelling…. Any ideas of how to incorporate this interesting structure into a solar-passive home???? Unfortunately although the company had a display at the eco show they didn’t have a “body”on site when I was there to actually ask real-time questions. Besides at this point I dont want sales pitch, I am interested in permie input on this as a concept???
