How quickly could you set up shelter if you were forced out of your home, and had to find a new place to stay right away?

If normal alternatives don’t fit the situation, you could construct a quick-assembly dome shelter that is designed be as rigid as any conventional building up to code.

“What we have is a building that goes up as fast as a tent, and once it’s up, it’s stronger than city hall.”

The man pitching this interesting shelter design foresees its use for emergency medical sites, Red Cross relief, military housing, homeless shelters and refugee camps during a crisis… ironically, it is from a quite dated commercial.

In principle, it includes pre-fabricated leaves of the dome than can be rapidly pieced together, giving anyone in a SHTF situation, or a rural retreat the ability to create a cabin on demand – with prefab options for doors, windows, solar panels and flooring. If you want them for a longer term, they can stand permanently, and be finished out inside to increase comfort.

They are even strong enough to bury and blend in with earthen structure to camoflauge, conceal or simply keep your dome hut cool with earth contact.

It’s unique, and universal shape makes it naturally resistant to natural disasters, including the most severe hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes. And their quick construction offers a shelter that is as strong as normal building, with assembly that is only moderately more complicated than a tent.

No word on the pricing, but the company will quote one on the website; however there are plenty of designs out there for a DIY approach as well.

Consider it another tool in your preps, when survival matters above all else, and every resource must maximize the balance between cost and utility. Where simplicity and elegance of design count, it may be a good option.
