The only tools you will need are:
Nail Gun (desirable)
The structural framework of a Timberline Dome consists of 2" x 6" wooden struts and our unique heavy duty steel connector system. The color-coded struts are bolted to color-coded connectors using two wrenches. Once the free-standing framework is erected, T-blocking and color-coded wooden studs are nailed at 16" on center in every triangle. This facilitates installation of the plywood shell and the addition of standard size conventional finishing materials.
To complete the basic dome shell, pre-cut, color-coded triangular plywood panels are nailed to the framework. The color-coded parts are cut and drilled precisely. They are easy to identify, and they fit the way the instructions say they should.
Thats all Ill add as it pulls from our bandwith there is a ton of information out here just do a basic google search for dome home .
Also dont forget to searh Buckminster Fuller as the original design is his and he was a brilliant man...

I started out researching cob (do a google search)
there's cob 5-10 story buildings in Morocco that are
hundreds of years old.. but cob is more difficult
to work with than strawbales.
The biggest problem with alternative housing is
the government - building codes, inspectors, etc.,
are all trained to support the building industry.
The only way around it is to build in small units
that are not covered by inspection laws (check your
local laws) and stick 'em together...

I would not go with a manufactured home
The value of a manufactured house almost allways goes down
So if you are planning on moving again i would not go with that.
