Dome Homes

…shaping the homes of tomorrow-

>Simplifying a child’s dream.
Millions of people are homeless. What if there was a way to make affordable houses for the majority. The saying was ‘people is glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones’. Of course they shouldn’t throw stones because people would throw them back and destroy your house. But, what if they were made of translucent plexiglass. No rock can hurt that. The difficult part is to dig the basement. That is, since the rest of the house is so easy. The idea is to create dome houses with a large fan and liquid plexiglass. It’s as easy as blowing a bubble with bubblegum.
1st, build a circular track that is connected like a Christmas tree railway track.
2nd, connect a very large bladed fan to said track
3rd, cover with a wire mesh similar to chain link fence
4th, cover that with a fine fabric or tarp
5th, spray or pour a liquid fiberglass over entire circle
6th, turn on the fan

7th, allow the air to push up the tarp & plexiglass, once it reached its designed peak, continue the air at a constant rate until the plexiglass has dried.

Which, that is only the beginning.  There are additional ideas on the entrance doors and windows. Once the design is ironed out or inflated, maybe three houses could be built per day.

And looking towards the future this dome construction will be perfect for life on the Moon. There will be greater uses and variations.  Instead of a dome which is 1/3 the area of a sphere some could be the shape of a cylinder with a dome on the top of it sort of like a silo. Once people realize that Mars is way too far to inhabit the Moon will become the new Miami Beach which will most likely be under water by then.
