Building Your Own Geo Dome Greenhouse – The Bottom Line

As you can see geodesic greenhouse domes are EXPENSIVE! And they should be. (If you are paying someone else to do all the “work” for you.) Or you could follow the step-by-step, instructions, pictures and tips in Kacper’s book and do it yourself for around $5500 (including frame, foundation, glazing, insulation and roof vent) SAVING YOU at least $30,000.00 dollars!! (Based on the above price for a complete professionally installed prefab dome kit.)

Now I don’t know about you but I would love to keep thirty grand in my retirement fund while I ate fresh amazing veggies at the same time! So go ahead and check out the book on how my friend Kacper built a 40ft dome in a couple of weekends and save over $30,000 bucks right now!

Or if you have the cash and don’t want the hassle of “doing it yourself” head over to Growing Spaces and buy a pre-made dome at a huge premium.

    What kind of covering do you use? I have been researching different greenhouses and my building department says that if I require concrete piers to anchor that I will need a permit. I will need to get plans, do they cost more or are they included with the book?

      Hi Camille,

      The best cover is poly-kedar. A high tech insulating plastic that lets light through but keeps heat in. Plain greenhouse poly (visquine) with UV resistance works as well though two layers with an air gap are recommended. As for building permits, there is usually a minimum size that doesn’t require a permit. I suggest trying that first and if you “get the bug” then at least you have a demonstration building to show the inspector. The book will walk you through the steps to build your own dome. If you want more specific plans you can do up your own or buy them from any of the reputable online retailers. Good luck and send pics!
