The common commercial domes currently sold for housing substitutes should not be considered for
surviving a pole shift. From a frugal cost, yet practical, able to survive the pole shift point of view, look
at the following concepts.
- Have no windows before the pole shift. If you make it through the pole shift and want a window, do
the following. If it is a Monolithic dome - take a sledge hammer and pound some holes where you
want windows and doors. Cut the wire mesh and reinforcing rod. Concrete in windows and doors
wherever you want them. If it is a steel dome then, cut holes with appropriate steel cutting saws. I
don't consider wood domes worthy of being a pole shift survival quarter.
- If you want a port hole for viewing, use one of those fish eye peep holes used in doors that bolts
through the door. Use this at several places through the dome wall (concrete or metal). You may not
be able to use it during the pole shift but afterwards you may be able to tell which exits are blocked.
- Have a few strategically located, small sturdy inwardly opening escape hatches. One should be at or
near the top. This is in case debris gets piled up on the sides and blocks lower exits.
- The angle the side (inside of the dome) makes with the ground should be no more than 45 degrees.
To be really safe this should be 30 degrees or less. The smaller this angle the more likely an object
will bounce off, and not damage the dome. Makes more of a glancing blow as debris bounces and
blows along the ground. For most housing type domes today, the sides come down vertically at 90
degrees with the ground. This is certainly not recommended. For existing domes planned to be used,
dirt can be piled on the outside to whatever height is needed, to reduce this side to ground angle.
Note: You many not want many, or any windows after the pole shift. The growing and task lighting could
give away your position to unfriendly passerby's.
