I would like to build a 20 foot round straw bale house on some desert property that I have and have been thinking about a custom-domed roof for it.
I need ultraviolet , and water-proof protection for long-term use. Do you have these materials, and can you give me an estimate on price? I would also like to know if you have any ideas for attaching the roof to the straw bales.
Please let me know. Thank you very much.

Sounds like a great idea. Our 30′ roof shell would work, being about 23′ in diam. Our covering will last about 3+ years or much more if you shade it. You could attach it by running a cord from the clips (there are 20 base clips in the 30’er) down the bales and staking it to the ground or the bales.

Let me know if we can help.


This system is thrilling, my head swims with the possibilities thanks


Would you please send me a catalog.

We have had a small color catalog in the past but in order to produce a catalog that would have any where near what we show online it would be cost prohibitive, we therefore encourage you to rely on our web catalog. We also put our complete manual online for you to look at.:

Dear Shelter Systems Folks,

I have a couple of questions about the 30 ft solar dome yurt. How many
doors does it have?


is it possible to get more windows with net screening in
addition to net doors installed?
