to Get Involved in Conic Shelters
Shelters are an experimental structural system that is being developed
and refined all the time by
our team of designers and builders. To date approximately 30 full-scale Conic Shelters
of one type or another have been constructed. You can participate in this
process in several different ways.
Manual and Design Kit (cost: $100 USD)
Includes a copy of the umbraCone Construction
Manual - a 65 page step-by-step construction manual for building the
single cone "Umbra Cone" design. In addition we will ship
you the 20 page mulitConic Design Kit, a guide to building multi-Conic
models (to any scale) and incorporating any multi-conic geometry. With
these two manuals you can evaluate Conic Shelters and determine if this
building process is suitable for your project. If you decide to join
the Beta Program (see below) and you already have these two booklets
then the Beta Program cost is reduced by $100.
Program Membership (cost $500 USD)
Membership in the Conic Shelter Beta Program is available for a flat fee
of $500 flat fee. It gives you access to existing Conic Shelter construction
plans and manuals (including the two mentioned above) and serves as the
foundation of a dialog between you and Conic Shelter with regard to your specific
application. The Beta Program is suggested for those who
are close to actually building a Conic Shelter and those who want to start
creating detailed finish designs.
Consulting Services (cost variable)
We provide consulting services to help you create custom designs, prepare construction drawings,
and work with your architect, engineer or other designers to help you
create the ultimate Conic Shelter for your home, shop, or other use. Fees for
consulting services are variable and depend on travel distance and other
factors. Call to discuss this option (707 884 1769 USA).
you would like to purchase the umbraCone Construction Manual or become a member of the Beta Program just drop us an email and we will send you an invoice via PayPal. When you receive the invoice (via your email) you can click on the link provided and pay with any credit card (or PayPal account if you have one). Of course you can always call or email us directly to discuss the above options or others ways of getting
