48 ft in diameter Dome Home in Edgewater, Florida


A 75% complete, 48 foot diameter (approx 2,700 sq. ft. three bedroom, two bath) American Ingenuity two story, steel reinforced concrete dome home is for sale. The home sits on a 9/10s of an acre on a high and dry lot in Volusia County, surrounded by hundreds of acres of woodlands. The lot is secluded and on a paved road in the county about 20 minutes from the beach and about 5 minutes to the intercoastal.

The homeowner, Eric Brindley, has been building it in his spare time for about 7 years…paying cash as he built.  About 99% of what you see was built by Eric. The electrical and drywall need to be completed. Cabinets, fixtures, flooring, and spiral staircase need to be installed.

Per Eric, “The Dome is very efficient and strong. It was been hit by several hurricanes and tropical storms with no damage what so ever. My neighbor’s conventional house was severely damaged. The dome has been air conditioned for about 3 years. Their Florida Power and Light (FPL) electrical bill runs around $100 a month. Most of that is a FPL "fuel charge" with the clothes dryer consuming most of the rest of the bill.”  The Brindleys keep the temperature around 72 degrees.

Features of the dome:

1.    It has a 3 ton 13 seer central AC system.

2.    All windows are 7/8 low e argon filled duel pane glass.

3.    The 10 foot sliding door is 1 inch low e argon filled.

4.    The shell is painted with elastomeric paint.

5.    Has well and septic.

6.    Has 4 skylights and a transom window...all low e.

7.    All entryway walls are framed with 2x8 pressure treated pine.

8.    The entryways are not concreted yet because there is still framing needed.
