Hello..
Good job....

I recall you mentioned previously that the dome would be a distant project after you did the pier!!![:)][:D]

Amazing how these things MUSt be brought forward...

Have you had any problems with neighbours or planners regarding the build?

Hi Steve,

Fortunately we are the last line of houses before woodland/mountain and set back from the building line we are also approx 12 foot above the "road" so the low hedge totally obscures the structure from the road - the low profile dome was designed with this in mind as was the multi sided "gazzebo" or sunhouse styling. The Neighbours (closet ones are family anyway) think its great - helped by showing them some of my astro pictures.

Planning ? We have a strange attitude towards them round here....

Billy....
