Dome rental communities if not able to build a survival shelter

(1/3) > >>

Yowbarb:
An idea that could help a lot of people weather the storms...or other earth changes which might be coming: RENT A LITTLE DOME in a Monolithic dome community.
A note about this: The dome shape will hold up to the wind but a lot of the doors, glass windows I see on these domes would not IMHO hold up to high winds. Solution go ahead and rent it just  be prepared to fasten on extra protection on the outside and/or the inside of, the existing windows and the door.
I did some reading on the site:  Just a few rules, two people per small dome...flexible stay, reasonable rates. Rental rate I saw was only a few hundred dollars on a small dome home and includes utilities... Not able to have a bunch of people or pets there but would save the life of two people, and one pet perhaps a small group smuggled in at last minute...in an emergency situation.
Will certainly hold up better than a regular wooden structure...

Yes... I am thinking if tshtf at least people could have time to rent a dome...
a dome or two small domes might be enough for te average family... in an emergency?

Not plugging any particular site will be posting some random rental offerings...to give readers an idea...
If people wanted to get away from the coast and felt it was time to scale it down smaller cheaper and get in a stronger structure...it is one idea...
Truth be told I'm not sure yet how many of these are available...Just saw this...

Yowbarb:
No idea if this place has vacancies...This dome community in mentioned in one of my earlier post, The Inn Place, Brenham, TX. Rental info is posted below...
Probably a good idea to have a stash of cash ready in case all h___ broke loose at least a person could pay the rent if the owner demanded it.
