TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — There’s new construction in the recovery area of Tuscaloosa that is stopping cars.

The new building is one that will be unique to the area and is said to be extremely resistant to severe weather. The dome structure is actually going to be someone’s home.

New Age Dome Construction, which is an Alabama-based business, has been getting a lot of phone calls from people rebuilding after the April 2011 tornadoes.

The dome homes have been around for decades, but John Johnson, who owns the business, claims he’s finally perfected the design.

Tuscaloosa’s dome home will be Johnson’s seventh build in West Alabama.
