The entire dome is placed on a 108-foot base area that is large enough for most people to stand up inside with ease.
Have you heard of 'glamping'? It basically means glamorous camping -- which is taking your camping experience and adding a bit of class to it. Sure, we know many of you guys like to get rough and rugged when it comes to sleeping in the great outdoors, but hey it can't hurt to try something new right. Furthermore, we've got something that will make for one trendy and memorable vacation. There is a geodesic garden dome available on Amazon that will make your glamping experience truly magnificent.
Technically it's a Garden Dome Igloo and it's seriously the perfect way to get the best of the outdoors right where you live. The dome is grafted from non-corrosive, 100% recyclable PVC and PA6 materials so you can get the best view possible from the day. At night, it gets even better as the transparency allows you to stand, sit, lie down, all under the stars. The dome will be placed on a 107-foot base area and has a max height of 7' 2".
That means even your tallest friend should be able to stand up inside without any trouble. The dome weighs approx. 55 pounds so it is fairly easy to move around, however, when the unit is assembled outdoors, it must be staked to the ground or on soft ground so it can be weighted with sandbags. The seller on Amazon also stated that they don't do custom sizes at this point but will update us if anything changes in the future.
If you take a look at how the dome is designed, it accounts for maximum airflow in order to maintain a uniform temperature throughout the dome. The unit comes with clamps and screws for hard grounds like concrete, tiles, wooden deck, and weight bags for soft grounds like soil, sand, grass etc. The insides are also wind and snow resistant so weather troubles will not dampen your experiences. Furthermore, this dome isn't just for glamping as it can also be used as a greenhouse. You can host a mini-dinner party inside one day and the next day you can turn the entire space into a haven for plants. Depending on the size of the chairs, you can comfortably fit 8-10 people around a circular table in the center.
"We bought one after we went to the Watergate Hotel and rented one of their igloos for the evening. Last year, we set it up in our front yard in DC and this year, we just moved it to our backyard in Williamsburg. The set up is a little time consuming the first time, maybe less than two hours. The second time, it was less than 30 minutes. We absolutely love it for the winter." one reviewer on Amazon said. Another happy owner wrote; "When my home was foreclosed on I was able to live in this quite comfortably in the back yard of my foreclosed home. With the solar panels I was able to live in comfort and when my home was purchased at auction I found the igloo very simple to disassemble and reassemble. I now live by a creek behind a Starbucks so bonus Free Wi-Fi! I would highly recommend this item!"
The Garden Dome Igloo is priced at $1,199 and is guaranteed to last you a lifetime. However, the item is currently out of stock on Amazon due to previous orders and you'll have to wait a while before they stock up again.
