    How does one connect the hard-wired utilities (electrical, plumbing) to this rotating dome?

    @richardspida Look up “slip ring” it’s how you send electrical contact through something that has to spin. But aside from that, if this home only follows sunlight, it doesn’t have to spin 360 degrees. After the sun sets, it can rotate back to it’s home position in the opposite direction, therefore never making a full rotation.

    OK folks, I spent 6 months working on this DomeSpace 15 years ago in New Paltz, NY. It’s not pre-fab! I spent hours cutting the ceiling slats, and equal time laying the sub-flooring. The only pre-fab elements in this project were the framing and custom steel pieces. This DomeSpace was designed in France, and the pre-fab pieces were shipped in 40′ shipping containers. The exterior roofing shingles were also part of the pre-fab, but that was all. I can’t tell you how many obstacles and unexpected problems we encountered. By the time December came, my custom construction experience was over. What you see here is the finished product. The owners were great people, but I lost contact with them and I guess this is their summer home! It was quite an experience and it took a lot more time than 3 months to complete.

    There is a concrete ‘basement’ in the center of the building. All water and electrical came in through that portal. It’s hard to describe as I’m not an engineer! But it worked!

    what was the overall pricing and costs of building all of this? and the land it is upon? I would love to know. I want to build my own galactic pad when i grow a little older.

    Cool concept but not that practical for e.g. interior installation of standard pieces. Everything has to be made on size. I’ve seen a more modular concept in the form of a dome built up from triangles.

    You said prefab, as in plans and kits are available, then tried to sell the model in situ. which is it?
