The placement of mirrors in the kitchen helps the space to appear larger than it actually is.  The windows and open floor plan help with this effect as well.

The bedroom is lofted about the rest of the geodesic home, and has an illuminating skylight window just above the space where one’s head would lay.  This allows for those sleeping in this room to enjoy a beautiful view of the night sky.

Equipped with a composting toilet, the earthen dome is off the grid when it comes to sewage.  Composting toilets are a simple and ecological way to save potentially tens of thousands of dollars when building your own home.  They are easy to use and clean and also save massive amounts of water.
