But if you prefer cosy interiors, you can go for the queen-sized bed and a hot shower in the built-in bathroom just outside the dome.

The dome runs entirely on solar energy and a propane supply for heating and cooking, so you don’t have to worry about not having warm food or water. It even comes with a mini fridge to store perishables if you don’t want to cook and rely on packaged products.
