|Completely assembled plydome with lexan
windows, April, 1994. Assembly of plywood took
5 days with a crew of three; windows 2 days
with a crew of two.
|We held bonfires several nights in a row. The smoke leaked out the holes left open in the top.|
|Interior of dome.|
|One year later: bridge over top is supplemented with bent trees, 8 ft.x 12 ft. ventilator is barely visible. The plywood is weathered and in need of paint.|
|The dome became my workshop as well, for
fabrication of other domes. Here Inge and
Acorn and I are building an outhouse for the
Chrysalis sphere in which they live.
