As far as Tiny Homes meeting minimum size house requirements in some areas groups are petitioning their county or their city governing bodies to allow them to have Tiny Home Communities (called pocket neighborhoods) where the minimum house size can be below state code. The City of Rockledge Florida agreed that a group whose face book page is calledRockledge Tiny House Communitycan purchase property and build Tiny Homes from 172 sq. ft up to 1000 sq ft. in their city. Normally in Florida the minimum new house size requirement is 500 sq.ft. or 800 sq.ft. or 1,000 sq.ft. So congratulations to the City of Rockledge Tiny House Group for its victory in changing minimum size house requirements in their city to 172 sq.ft.

Each prefab panels core is 7 EPS (expanded polystyrene) R-28 insulation precisely angle cut to form the geodesic shape. Applied to the outside is pre-finished three quarters inch concrete, reinforced with galvanized steel mesh and fibers. Applied to the interior is half inch Georgia Pacific DensArmor gypsum wallboard.gypsums facing is fiberglass instead of paper. Wallboard is moisture resistant and mold resistant. No wood in or on the shell to rot or for termites to eat or to burn. No shingles to blow off in high winds. On site after the kit is assembled, the exterior concrete is primed and painted with paint.The 15 and 18 dome kits can be purchased with 3 1/2 R14 EPS, no interior 1/2 drywall & no steel reinforced concrete exterior. Larger domes cannot be purchased this way because the larger size panels cause the EPS to be flexible and break.
The kit assembly begins after the foundation and floor are completed and a temporary wooden rib system is assembled in the geodesic shape. The assembly process consists of stacking the panels on the rib system overlapping and locking the steel mesh of adjacent panels, filling the seams with special formulated concrete and concreting of the entryways and dormers. Finish the interior wall board seams with tape and joint compound. This process produces the structural components, completes the finished exterior surface, installs the insulation and all the interior shell wallboard. To view a video on the 22 Assembly, viewSpecial Hideaway. To view pictures showing general panel assembly, viewDome Kit Assembly.
On site, under the entryways and dormers a 24 or 26 wall is framed in to install your locally purchased doors and windows.
The concrete applied in the seams and on the entryways and dormers is sponge finished to match the pre-finished texture of the concrete panels. The dome is primed with concrete primer and then painted with two coats of exterior concrete paint to achieve the color you desire.
All panels are premarked with numbers and letters to match the building plans and the Assembly Manual. The most successful dome kit assemblies result when the home owner hires the independent Kit Assembly Consultant to supervise the temporary rib system assembly & the kit assembly. If your budget is tight consider hiring the Consultant for a minimum of three days to supervise the rib system assembly, concrete mixing and first row of panel assembly..just to get you started. If you desire to hire a builder, he or she can hire the Assembly Specialist to supervise their workers to get the dome kit assembled with the first layer of concrete in the seams and on the entryways and dormers. To view Ais web site file about the independent Specialist, viewSpecialist.
Prior to assembly of the dome kit, a temporary wooden rib system is assembled using your own 24s cut to specific lengths (or purchase the cut, drilled, painted 24s from Ai), bolts/nuts/washers purchased from Ai and steel hubs borrowed from American Ingenuity by placing a $455 deposit. This deposit covers a 5 month rental period ($20 a month thereafter). Once the dome kit is assembled, the rib system is removed with the client mailing or UPSing the hubs back to Ai to receive a deposit refund. Triangle Panels weight 155 to 180 lbs. Risers weight 255 lbs. During assembly the panels are placed with some type of hoisting mechanism. Lifting spikes are purchased from Ai. To view American Ingenuitys web site file that explains the rib system, viewSupport System. If importing the kit out of the USA, buyer purchases the steel hubs from Ai.
Please check with your building department, some have minimum house square footage requirements. If the 15, or 18 or 22 dome may not meet their requirements. Ai manufactures a 27 in diameter dome that can have 555 sq.ft. on the first floor and 225 sq.ft. on the second floor for a total of 780 sq.ft. To view Ais web page that lists the dome sizes with their square footages, viewDome Sizes.
Please contact your building department and ask:
If there is a minimum size new house requirement?
Do they require a garage to be built with the house? If so is there a minimum size garage requirement?
What do they require to issue a building permit? Do they require engineer sealed plans and an Energy Report?
If so, those items can be purchased through American Ingenuity. T
he Energy Report has evolved into a very specific and technical report that requires Ai to have specific window and exterior door info (frame type, double pane or impact resistant glass), Low E number, U factor, SHGC number to fill out the Energy Report. This means the dome buyer will shop for their exterior doors and windows and provide detailed spec sheets to Ai about each door and window, their water heater and AC/furnace.
Payments:American Ingenuity kits are not stocked and are manufactured on a custom order basis and are considered a Specialized Order, made exclusively for the customer requesting it. These Specialized Orders require a 30% to 40% deposit, signed Order Form, Conditions of Sale and Specialized Material Agreement. Once Ai receives these items, materials will be purchased and manufacturing started to meet your shipment date. If you cancel your order after signing the Specialized Agreement 30% deposit on each kit is non-refundable and your rights to the kit(s) are forfeited. The balance, in the form of a cashiers check or bank check including USA shipping costs (made out to American Ingenuity) is due 21 days prior to shipment. Florida residents, add sales tax plus your counties surtax. Credit Cards are not accepted on the building kit. If the building kit is shipped out of Florida, no Florida sales tax or surtax is paid. If kits are exported, buyer pays freight forwarder directly for inland trucking costs and ocean shipping costs.
Delivery and Availability:Once Ai receives your 30% or 40% deposit (deposit amount depends on kit size) based on your Building Kit with options pricing and signed Building Kit Order Form, Conditions of Sale and Specialized Material Agreement, American Ingenuity schedules your kit for manufacturing. Depending on the time of year and size of dome, allow four to six to twelve weeks for manufacturing time.
SHIPPING:If your site is in the continental USA, American Ingenuity can arrange shipping on 53 step deck semi-truck. Freight varies from $2.70 to $2.90 per mile ($800 minimum) per truck, from American Ingenuity plant in Rockledge, Florida. One truck can carryfive 15 kits; ortwo 18 kits; ortwo 22 kits; orone 22 kit & one 27 kit; orone 30 kit; orone 34 kit each with 7 EPS insulation.
15 & 18 Kit:If 3 ½ EPS and no drywall one truck can carry up to ten 15 kits; or up to four 18 kits. 22, 27, 30 and 34 kits cannot be purchased with 3 ½ EPS. The panels are too large in these larger kits to manufacture with thinner 3 1/2 insulation. The 7 insulation is required so the panel is not flexible during movement.
For international shippingthe following is the number of 15 and 18 kits that can fit inone 45 high cube container. To learn about importing, click onimporting. 24 ribs refers to 24s that are cut, drilled & painted to specific specs for the temporary support system described above.
Four 15 kits with 7 EPS, 1/2 drywall,standard 4 risers & 2 risers & two sets of 24 ribs.
Eight 15 kits with 3 1/2 EPS, no drywall,standard 4 risers & 2 risers & two sets of 24 ribs.
Two 18 kits with 7 EPS, 1/2 drywall,standard 4 risers & 2 risers & one set of 24 ribs.
Four 18 kits with 3 1/2 EPS, no drywall,standard 4 risers & 2 risers & one set of 24 ribs.
The number of kits that can fit on one truck or in one container can change if the building kit contains maxed out entryways, dormers, link and thicker insulation. For example, a 48 kit with 9 EPS cannot fit on one semi-truck. Entryways and a link take up more space than triangular and riser panels. Once you select your floor plan, Ai can be specific about how many truck(s) or containers your order will take.Each International client hires a freight forwarder to coordinate their containers shipping and pays their shipping and custom fees directly to the freight forwarder.
Ais manufacturing costs in Florida are well below the national average, which offsets any long distance shipping expenses. Ai can actually manufacture a kit here in Florida and ship to western states Washington, California, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Arizona, etc. cheaper than we could manufacture it there. Having our manufacturing plant located in Florida is advantageous for shipping since more is shipped in than out of the state, leaving many trucks headed out empty.
Ai utilizes independent trucking agencies. American Ingenuity contracts to have these trucks carry your building kit outside Florida for approximately $2.50 to $2.90 per mile per truck from Ais plant in Rockledge, Florida. Shipping within Florida is a minimum of $800. If your Florida building site is south of our factory, the truckers charge more because they have to drive south before they can drive north to leave Florida. These trucking costs are less than Ai could do with our own trucks because if we used our own trucks, they would have to deliver the kit and return to our factory empty.
Per mile shipping costs can vary due to fuel costs and travel distances. ViewShippingto learn more.
One of the main reasons American Ingenuity is very reputable is that we really try to treat all our customers the same. Our business philosophy and product is unique to the housing industry. Ai believes that each client should pay for only what they need.
Each person who wants to research our building kit further can do so by purchasing the Planning Kit with DVD or purchase the DVD separately.
About 40% of Ais clients do not need engineer sealed building plans, or Energy Report or Structural Calculations in order to obtain a building permit. As a result the seal, energy report and calculations are separate costs and paid only by those whose building departments require them.
As a result of the above philosophy, the American Ingenuity dome shell kit costs about one third to one half less than the shell materials cost for a conventional house or wooden dome or sprayed concrete dome.

The information below is in reference to a specific 22 floor plan named Eco Custom Cottage.
This is a 22 foot in diameter dome kit, which Ai has customized. Please call for pricing. This custom 22 in diameter dome when finished has a first floor living space of 371 sq. ft. with an optional attic of 127 sq. ft. Ai has raised the riser wall height from four feet to five feet. The additional one foot in height increases the attic square footage to 127 sq. ft., which is an additional 46 sq. ft. over the basic 22 dome building kit. The exterior of each triangle & riser panel is steel reinforced concrete. The middle of the panel is 7 EPS insulation (R-28) with 1/2 Georgia Pacific DensArmor Gypsum drywall adhered to the underside of the EPS with wallboard adhesive. Ai has based the pricing for this kit upon Ai selecting the week/day of shipment during the month agreed upon by Buyer & Ai.

12 Reasons to Purchase Our Walk In Chicken Coop Kits
No tools are required for assembling our Geodesic Dome Kits. Just use the 120 lb Heavy Duty Zip Ties to connect the struts to the hubs. The instructions are easy, and the struts are pre-cut and guaranteed to fit perfectly.
This is better than building a wooden structure, where you need a drill, a power screwdriver, a skill saw to cut your struts, and a table saw to split your 2x4s into 2x2s. You also need the carpentry skills to use these tools, and
No Tools Required to Build the Geodesic Dome Kit.
The Geodesic Dome Design is rugged and sturdy. You may build a rectangular structure out of PVC pipe, but you will not be able to do a chin-up on them,as shown in our Load Test video. Our domes are very sturdy!
The other PVC chicken coop designs use PVC joints that are meant for plumbing, not construction. These plumbing joints crack and break due to the leverage placed on them by the rectangular design in a standard PVC chicken coop. If you drag a rectangular PVC coop long enough, the plumbing joints will become loose.
No other PVC Chicken Coop is this strong!
Our Walk In Chicken Coops use interlocking triangles connected together with our patented hub design. Our hubs are designed to be flexible and not crack, and are specifically made for construction, not plumbing. We use UV
