Glamping Dome Store

Learn More

Our store and story started, when our family moved to the breathtakingly beautiful Sylvan Lake, with Canada's ravishing Rocky Mountains right at our doorstep.

Being avid wilderness enthusiasts, we loved the idea of sharing the picturesque outdoors with other nature-lovers, adventurists and families. And so the Glamping Dome Store was born.

We’re passionate about nature preservation; thus ALL our domes are eco-conscious and help to protect the environment. They’re also ideal as storage, accomodation, a store, a greenhouse and just perfect for glamping too. So without further ado, welcome to our store, where we help our clients embrace nature responsibly, be it for vacation or permanent living.  

Of course your dream of great outdoors, camping or glamping shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg, because you never know when you may need those limbs out in the wilderness.

That’s why we pride ourselves in our top-notch and ECONOMICAL geodesic domes. What’s more - we’re 100% committed to the highest standard of customer satisfaction, from purchase all the way to delivery.

We'll leave you with the famous words of Sulvia Plath: “I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery — air, mountains, trees, people, and I thought, this is what it is to be happy”.

Backyard Office Studios and Sheds

Learn More

I’m Jim and the founder of BOS&S. Before this I was an Industrial Engineer and consultant and spent the last 20+ years working with companies to make things better. I’ve worked in industries from jet engines to service companies to craft breweries. Now I get to work for my own company finding ways to do things better for my customers.

As a kid I can remember spending many hours in my grandfather’s workshop which was a simple wood structure. In that workshop using his lathe and hand tools he created wonderful wooden objects from plant holders to stock cube dispensers, everything he made had to have both form and a useful function. It was in that workshop I developed my love of working with wood and other materials to make things of use. Now working with wood, metal, glass and even plastics I get to create spaces of use where you get to choose what you want to create.

Zero Squared

Learn More

We created ZeroSquared as a solution. We believe we can help people live happier lives with less stress. We can give you comfort, functionality and freedom. Allowing you to downsize without downgrading your life.

When our team first came across tiny homes, we immediately fell in love with the idea of downsizing to achieve a higher quality of life. The more we dove in, the more we recognized the freedom and benefits tiny home owners could avail themselves to. Living in a tiny home was a great way to minimize the stresses of everyday life. Cleaning was easier, repairs were less expensive, not to mention people could actually own their homes and take it with them if/when they moved. We became fascinated so many people could solve so many of their problems by this simple change of lifestyle.

There was only one problem: None of us could actually see ourselves living in any of the tiny homes we saw. All the ones we came across in our research were either too small, or so simplified that most of us would miss major elements of our current housing. The tiny homes we were finding weren’t tailored for people who were used to comfortable and modern living spaces.  As a group of designers and fabricators who are constantly thinking up the impossible, we wanted to create something which we would want to live in.

The Bunkie

Learn More

In The beginning, it was an idea to cross pollinate high volume furniture production with small scale architecture. The premise was to develop an easy to assemble kit that would pack a ton of features within a tiny space. Bunkies have long been a loophole for cottagers to add extra sleeping space to their properties without the hassle of building permits. By keeping the size under 108 square feet, within almost any region across Canada, you can erect a structure without a building permit.

We started with a model built in my garage and quickly realized it was a viable concept.

Honomobo

Modern. Beautiful. Modular. Honomobo.

At Honomobo this isn’t just a catch phrase, it defines everything we do.

Modern – Modern design is an all encompassing philosophy which we define in three main categories.

Beautiful – In a Honomobo we made the conscious decision to build exceptionally durable homes which run exclusively on electricity.

Modular - A modular home is built in a factory. A factory setting allows a Honomobo to be built faster, higher quality, and with less waste than a standard home.

These three principles define what we do at Honomobo.

Modern. Sustainable. Modular. Honomobo.

Indeed, with insulating values of R34 in the floor, R24 in the walls and R44 in the roof along with a change of air per hour of 1.12, this 2 storey tiny house is designed to be very energy efficient. This tiny home model is distinguished in particular by its large accommodation capacity and its numerous storage spaces.

Prefab Building

FAQs

What's the difference between different kinds of prefab buildings?

There are four primary types of prefab buildings. Standard prefab homes are much like stick-built homes, only built offsite. Prefab tiny homes are smaller wheeled living spaces, similar to RVs. Offices, studios, and bunkies are usually one room buildings used for work or extra sleeping, and usually don't have any plumbing. Guesthouses (or cabins, cottages, or ADUs) are similar to prefab homes but are usually made smaller to act as a second home, weekend getaway, in-law suite, or rental property. More details can be found in our Ultimate Guide to Buying a Prefab Home.
