Dome Structure How To

I may be needing to build a decent root storage using this..  1000 bags on amazon is about $170 
I was looking into it because I need to put a proper backstop on my target range.. I just have too many animals around now so I was going to make I nice big U to control any possible ricochet .. and Sand Bags have awesome bullet stopping power.

Hmmm, interesting.  Food for thought.  What will you fill them with?

I have a River nearby so I would get pebble sized (1/8 inch)  sand from there.  But people fill them withever is on hand - clay, clay concrete mixture, rice hulls, mulched straw with earth, pumice stone...

Obviously some materials will last longer than others..

Looks like it would be very handy in a primitive world.

Shape reminds me of a yurt.

Things break hard enough, people would be lucky to have such a simple dwelling.
