This well-entrenched underground dome home features a spacious 3500 sqft floor plan. With over 150 tons of concrete, and 3 times that much dirt covering the structure, the home is one of the most well buried earth homes taller than one story. Surprisingly, all of this weight is supported by a 4″ thick re-enforced concrete dome.
