Monolithic Dome rentals are now available! Built on private country real estate giving you the small-town environment. Most units include a bathroom with shower, basin and toilet; a kitchen with stove, refrigerator, table and chairs; a furnished sleeping area; heating and air conditioning.

These rentals are classified as residence inns. They therefore operate under motel, hotel or inn rules rather than apartment rules in the first 30 days. This classification has some important advantages. For example, renters at a residence inn can pay their rent weekly. Unlike apartments, there is a smaller demand for deposit and security fees, making it far more affordable and easier for the renter.

Round Flats, Inc. asks for three weeks up front, which is two weeks rent and one week deposit, that is returnable when they move as long as there is no damage. If renter has lived in the studio less than 30 days, hotel rules apply. They can be asked to leave. However, in Texas, after thirty days a normal apartment eviction applies. This rule varies from state to state. For more information, contact Round Flats, Inc..

“If you build them, they will rent.” David B. South has been saying that since mid-2000 when the company first began planning the building of an experimental complex of dome rentals. Monolithic’s goal was to provide clean, secure, and — most importantly — affordable housing for low-income individuals.

The idea or goal came about because of media reports and information on the Web about growing, nationwide shortage of affordable housing. People particularly affected, in both rural and urban areas, included single men and women with minimum wage jobs, single mothers, senior citizens with inadequate or no pensions, and victims of work layoffs or company downsizing.

Monolithic Cabins

The Monolithic Cabin is a modified Monolithic Dome – like a tunnel with rounded ends. These domes all have a diameter (width) of 12 feet, but their total length and interior space depends on the model. (Continued…)
