Geodesic Tent

Subject: Re: Geodesic Tent

Date: April 23, 2009

I am planning to construct a temporary home on a site in the south of Spain and am wondering if your geodesic yurtdome structure would be suitable.

The structure would need to be waterproof, insectproof, insulated and afford UV sunlight protection. It would be expected to have at least 2-3 years use.

The preferred structure would have a large central dome with 2 – 3 attached domes (sleeping, bathroom, kitchen)

Awaiting your reply,
With thanks,

Hi Thomas

Thank you for your interest in our shelters. I am not sure if our domes will meet your expectations but they have been used for extended time in many locations: see:

Our dome’s coverings are UV stabilized and tent to last in excess 3 years but this depends also on the local conditions including elevation. Our covering has been tested in FL and AZ USA and in that harsh sun climate it lasted 3+ years. We guanretee it for 1.5 years as we cannot control how or where they are used.

We do offer bug net doors: but these will not make your dome insect “proof” as insects find their way in all types of dwellings. Take a look at our manual if you have not already done so:

I would suggest that if you are interested in our YurtDomes that you start by getting one and seeing if it will work for you before committing to four. I also recommend that you get a sunshade:
