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.
Model 15 has a length of 15 feet and a living area of 155 square feet. Model 19 is about 19 feet long and 203 square feet. Model 24 is 24 feet long and 266 square feet. All models are a nominal 10 feet high, from bottom of crossbeams to top of roof.
David South, President of Monolithic, sees the Monolithic Cabin as "one of the most versatile, small domes we have ever designed. It’s really an all-purpose unit!
“We manufacture these cabins here, at our headquarters in Italy, Texas and load one or two of them on a truck for transport to the client’s site,” David says. "They weigh about 9 to 14 tons, are definitely shippable and require only a small amount of land.”
The Monolithic Cabin can be used as a rental unit, eco-housing or granny flat, disaster shelter, workshop, office or studio, game room, vacation dome, exercise room, temporary housing for work crews or home builders, guest house or storage. They can be designed as single living units or combined with others. The list goes on and on!
