I would like to express my satisfaction with the recent dome
construction project that Ray Ansel at R&S Lifeline domes
completed for me.
The entire project from the planning stage to final finish out
could not have gone more smoothly.
Ray is extremely knowledgeable and experienced with the dome
construction method and has all the necessary equipment to
accomplish this highly technical construction method. He also
has a great crew working for him.
I would also like to note the he was able to do the project
completely off grid.
Ray is a man of his word, a hard worker and patient with clients. I
hope to do more projects with him in the future. Highly recommended.
"Ray Ansel built my dome home in 2006. A contract was signed for work time completion and also the total cost of the job. The time allotted was exactly on track and the budget never needed altering. The contract was laid out exactly when a specific amount of work was completed that a draw for money would be requested.
Ray loves and believes whole heartedly in what he is doing, building dome homes. he is a pleasure to work with and unlike most home builders can take them from beginning to end, as he did for mine. I never had to worry about anything nor was I faced with any unexpected traumas that seem to occur when building a new home. It was a very easy experience for me and I would totally recommend Ray to anyone who wants to build a dome home. He would also be the first one I would contact if I had plans to expand or build again at another place.
If you need more information on this matter feel free to contact me."

"Ray Ansel of R&S Lifeline Domes LLC constructed my monolithic dome in Erwin, Tennessee. This has been my dream since 1965 when I explored and saw my first "foam" house. Ray's work lives up to the standards I had planned, with his attention to detail and his quality workmanship, the building is beautiful. From the first time I met Mr. Ansel and his staff, and became familiar with his equipment, I began to realize how this construction had changed and how much more experience and knowledge is needed. Ray used the above throughout the construction and has acquired a staff that works to please with friendly, supporting ethics. After explaining in detail and patiently answering questions as the dome was built, he completed the
Contract beyond the stipulated agreement, incorporating my ideas into this very pleasing home.
Mr Ansel shows he can work with all variety of personalities on the job and in the planning. (I also saw this in the other dome being built near Erwin by Ray). Dome buildings take understanding and knowledge for their very specific design, details and construction. Ray's years of experience have perfected his superior workmanship in this area. Ray Ansel and R&S Lifeline Domes LLC is and are a Company and individual I can recommend with complete confidence if the owner is on site or away for a month or more. I would gladly show my dome and hope in the next five years to build another dome in Florida, (hoping Ray Ansel and Company) are in the area."

"I have worked with Raymond Ansel for the last year or two doing electrical work for R&S Lifeline Construction. He does excellent work in both dome & frame houses. He sometimes does extra without compensation to satisfy the customer. He believes a man's word is his bond. A verbal agreement on Ray Ansel's part is just as good as a written Contract. He always stands behind
his work. The men who work with Ray Ansel are honest and very skilled workers. When Ray Ansel finishes a job, the customer is completely satisfied. He is one of the most honest people I have ever known."
