A NORWEGIAN family have built a seven metre glass dome around their off-grid house in the Arctic Circle. Benjamin and Ingrid Hjertefolger have spent £340,000 constructing their dream home, which is made entirely from all-natural materials such as sand and straw - in order to live sustainably. Located on Sandhorney Island, north Norway, the 7.5 metre high dome is made up of 360 glass panels and shields the entire house with a diameter of 15 metres allowing the family to grow their own fruit and vegetables inside. The project started back in 2012 and one and a half years later, Benjamin, Ingrid and their four children, Julia, 11, Gabriel, nine, Aron, six and Alvin 10 months, moved into their unique abode.

Wondering how the plants get pollinated. Do they bring in bees or other natural pollinators that actually belong in that ecosystem? Won't those insects respond to the shortened winter photoperiod and hibernate or estevate?
Absolutely breathtaking, this is the way to live. Closer to nature. Less stress. Less bills. Learn to be self-sufficient. No annoying neighbors, just wildlife and a gorgeous environment. Plus the arctic air is some of the freshest in the world.
Nearly every time I see a story about dome homes, the people are vegan tree huggers, who's only purpose in life is to remain "sustainable" and worship the earth. You know, there are plenty conservative folks out here, who are blue collar working joes and janes, and who would love to own a dome home or cabin. Monolithic and American Ingenuity domes guarantee their domes to withstand tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes. They are fire proof and termite proof. They are extremely energy efficient too. It just makes sense to live in a dome home. I would have a grow dome separate from my dome home though. I live in tornado alley, so a glass dome would not be a good idea.
Your home has all the things I put together in my sketches, but I thought of two domes with a glass hall growing area between .the domes cob and partially subterranean. Framed in side for structural but with the Viking outer . I'm looking for land and will be praying for Divine intervention for direction and meeting the financial cost. I am scavengering all all resources for the build . solar panels and board are not yet secure and you know how that goes. But thank you for sharing I can inspire my husband with your video. He knows its my dream.he doesn't quite see it. I feel like I'm on a trip away from it and homesick. So share more please.thanks again.
that's just awesome, but I've built many houses and I know windows are VERY expensive, I would like to know percentage of cost to build house was windows??? must be 75% of their money???? very cool tho.....to bad, I live in southern Canada and we hit 35C to almost 40C Celsius for 2x or 3x months a year and a glass house would just be way way too hot in summer, winter would be great tho.....guess if you could somehow make a removable roof to add overtop in summer, just to add shade, then open/remove some of the top windows to get airflow it might work, but for them more north, it's perfect, I love it
Its an idea that came from the Eskimos, first they build a large tent to keep out the stormy icy winds, very little temp gain but the wind chill is gone, then they build another tend inside of the large one and a third one made from animal hides, this inner sanctum can be heated with a candle to a degree that you can sleep there naked, lots of work for a happy eve :-)
W aste of space and time and money so overdone and not realistic for a couple and 4 kids ( 3 to many btw) great learning for them tho and I bett my life you wont stay there long~so much wasted space. I lived in a 25 foot dome and it cost 1 tenth of what you paid, and in Canada were the snow is our main season we do just fine off the grid~
We need people like this. Their children need to live in that place and continue their ancestors mission.
*To preserve the human race.*
Once a meteor/war/plague wreaks havoc on the world, (like it has done hundreds of times in the past) these nomads will carry our species on through time.
Nice for off-grid, survival uses, but not ecologically friendly; it took a LOT of pollution to build it based on the (alledged) $500,000 cost. Think about it. Plus, if there is property tax, someone will always need to have an income...which usually means a job (which adds to more environmental problems). Generally, the higher the property's government-assessed value, the higher the tax...so instead of polluting the earth by working, say, 2 hours a week, you may need to work 4 to generate the governmentally forced money transfer. An EarthShip would have been better.
You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
Sample Split Payroll Report.
We will need a complete employee job description before we add the classification to the policy. Please do not report payroll in the new classification until it has been reviewed and endorsed to your policy.
Job Duties Questionnaire.
We recommend you keep a copy of your previous payroll reports and payroll records for at least seven years, as you would your tax records.
Submitting Payroll Reports.
There are three different ways to submit your payroll reports.
