Kanye West's dome prototype homes will be torn down if he doesn't get building permit

New photos offer a close-up look at Kanye West's 'new age' wooden dome prototype homes in California, but the 'Star Wars'-inspired structures may be dismantled after the rapper fell foul with building regulators.  

Kanye built the future-esque structures earlier this year to create a one-of-a kind community that dismantles the class system within the housing market and shelters the homeless - but the plan may be a bust if he doesn't obtain a building permit by September.

Los Angeles building regulators visited Kanye's sprawling Yeezy Home community twice and determined that the homes violated building codes as they were permanent structures and require a permit to be built. 

Now the rapper has until September 15 to obtain a permit or tear his project down, according to TMZ.

New close-up shots of his Yeezy Home project show four wooden structures, each reportedly standing at 50-feet-tall, shaped like domes and huddled together. The interiors of the structures appear to be hollow and are patched up with black tarp.

Inspectors were first called to the Gold Digger singer's property following noise complaints from several neighbors living adjacent to the 300-acre Calabasas project about construction late at night. 

The first time an inspector with the LA County Department of Public Works stopped by the project, an on-site manager at the Yeezy Home project told inspectors the site was a 'production' project and temporary.

The second inspection took place a week ago and inspectors found the structures sitting on top of concrete platforms and determined the prototypes were permanent. 

Kanye now has until September 15 to obtain the permit. 

Kanye's rep is yet to return DailyMail.com's request for comment.  

Sources familiar with the project told TMZ that the 'Gold Digger' rapper believes that the domes will 'break barriers that separate classes'. This aerial image shows the progression of the Yeezy Home construction site

The domes sit on the Hidden Hills property that the 42-year-old rapper and wife Kim Kardashian first purchased back in 2014. 

Sources familiar with the project previously said it will 'break barriers that separate classes... namely, the rich, the middle class and the poor.'   

In an earlier interview with Forbes, West told a reporter that the domes could 'hopefully be used to house the homeless, having them live in spaces said to be sunk into the ground'.

'Dynamic' has been the word used to describe the project, which fits the exclusive brand that the fashion-mogul has come to be known for.

'There, with the hazy heft of something enormous and far away, stand a trio of structures that look like the skeletons of wooden spaceships,' Zack O'Malley Greenburg wrote of the project in Forbes cover piece on Kanye.

'They're the physical prototypes of his concept, each oblong and dozens of feet tall, and West leads me inside each one. He tells me they could be used as living spaces for the homeless, perhaps sunk into the ground with light filtering in through the top. We stand there in silence for several minutes considering the structures before walking back down to his lurking Lamborghini and zooming off into the night.'

It is unknown when Kanye plans to have the project finished or how people will get the ability to move in.
