Designed for versatility and ease of use Magidome® geodesic dome connectors are the DIY-ers dream product. Its simple to pre-drill your lumber and assemble your dome in different locations. Our design allows for every piece of lumber to be of equal length, without the need for intense math or angled cuts, making for a simple streamlined assembly process.
Whether at a music festival or building a camping yurt on the playa at burning man, Magidomes make a great space to camp, sleep, and come together with your friends in a unique and fun way.
As complex as the 1v dome shape may look, its simplicity is apparent upon ones first build. Starting at the base with a pentagon and building upwards with the help of a friend make slight work of the project.
Here is a miniature dome using 4' lengths that is large enough for an 6' adult to sleep lengthwise. Covered in marine tarp it serves as a lovely space to camp compared to a standard tent.
Once assembled its helpful to add braces if your location of build has strong external forces as well as anchor well to the ground to reduce chance of movement by elements like wind.
Covering your dome is simple with various tarps, or self-sewn canvases designed to fit your project. The top of each domes i essentially a pentagon and the walls a long rectangle. Be aware that once covered, your dome will have more surface area to catch wind and environmental forces.
From a ceremony gathering space, to a campout or tree planting cook shack, Magidomes® are a unique and versatile structure that are both memorable and fun to create.
