About

Lorax Homes is a non-profit venture intended to advance the construction of thin-shell concrete domes in place of traditional wood-framed homes. A 1000 square foot thin-shell concrete dome costs much less than a wood-framed structure of the same size and can be built in a fraction of the time. We believe that there is a future in alltogether abandoning wood construction in favor of thin-shell concrete everywhere. We have found a building methodology in use today that is mass-constructing thin-shell concrete domes to be used as affordable housing units. This methodology incorporates a polystyrene insulation procedure that creates a final structure that is over 90% more energy efficient than traditional (baselined) construction and insulation methods.
