Survival in a Low Cost, Ready Made Dome Shelter?

            Because of the diving downturn of the economy, people around the country are losing their homes.  Some are living in cars or vans.  Sure, we can say the media tells us about these things because they sensationalize the negatives, but these awful situations really are happening.  I remember months ago reading about tent cities springing up in California and other places around the country, but the media doesn’t report on that at present.  They want to tell us it’s bad, but they have their limitations it seems.


            What if there were a low cost shelter that could serve as a home, and it wasn’t a camping tent or car?  I’m happy to tell you there really is such a thing, and it’s produced by an organization called World Shelters.  They offer shelters for transitional shelter needs, as they put it.  Much of what they do involves offering temporary dome shelters for people in need after natural disasters and in Third World or less developed countries.


            So why should you be interested?  You can get one of their dome shelters for yourself.  What if you could have a home for the price of a low cost used car?  Whether you or someone you know is in danger of losing a home, or whether you’re in need of a temporary shelter while building your permanent homestead in the country, you should consider one of these dome shelters.  What if there was a whole dome community of refuge seekers on a piece of land in the middle of nowhere?


            Losing a home can be a devastating experience.  Consider the U-dome.  It’s 200 square feet in size, flame retardant, UV resistant, weather tight, and makes use of shingled construction.  Panels form internal support struts.  Walls are durable.  It comes with a standard 24” x 72” rv-style screen & panel door.  Window and vents are included.  There are joist floor and platform plans.  All tools and fasteners are included.  Assembly is simple.  This U-dome can withstand high winds, heavy rain, and light snow.  It’s light weight for shipping as well.  All this can be had starting at about $2,500.  Accessories can be added, making versatile possibilities for survival a reality.


World Shelters makes products that are both easy to construct and easy to transport for commercial or personal use, relief for U.S. homeless, or international relief efforts.  Plus, purchase of a U-dome for personal use helps provide shelter for refugees and disaster responses.   As they note on their web site, if you don’t need a dome yourself, but want to sponsor a dome for someone in need, you can securely donate through paypal, and it’s tax-deductible.
