It took us three tries, but we finally got the plans for the SabinDome finalized. We purchased these plans from AI Domes in Rockledge, FL. We started off with a stock plan and then made several changes to suit our needs and wants.
This is the floor plan for the first floor. One thing I love about this layout is that when you enter the front door you can see straight through the dome into the backyard. The foyer will be open to the top of the dome and there is a skylight just above once you step in.

This is an aerial view of the house (as if we could afford a helicopter to verify this view!). The smaller triangles you see randomly on the left side are skylights. There is one skylight in each upstairs bedroom.
Here you can view the layout of the second floor. it has 3 bedrooms, 1 sitting room, 1 full bath, and an attic in the garage.The lines around the outside of the dome indicate the headroom as you approach the exterior walls.

January 12, 2007 - We finally thought we were ready to get construction going and had to start by clearing the lot. The decision to clear the whole lot was a relatively easy one because the native landscape on our acre was not very attractive. The majority of the lot was covered by scrub.
With our experience landscaping our current house, we knew that we could re-landscape this lot once the house was built using native plants to create a more inviting home. We hope to obtain certifcation as a FL Friendly Yard and a Certified Wildlife Habitat. This is the lot, pretty much cleared with a burn pile in the middle.

We were so excited to begin making progress on the SabinDome that we thought you'd be just as excited to see so many pictures of a lot being cleared and yard debris being burned.
January 13, 2007 - No one knew it at the time (except our families), but Baby Sabin is posing in this picture with me... you just can't see him or her!

Bruce spent a lot of time staring into the burn pile. The fire burning underneath the ash gave off an eerie and scary glow.
January 15, 2007 - Once the lot was fully cleared, we were ready to build the SabinDome. We still had to bring in fill dirt where the house will be and shell rock next to the road to protect the asphalt.
