Learn how to build your own Geodesic Dome
Learn how to build your own Geodesic Dome without the expense of paying a company to do it for you. These structures can be constructed within a few days with the know how. Calculation, angles and piecing together may look daunting but with the right information and manuals, its basically a jigsaw! Spend the weekend in the midlands of Ireland with a group of people learning all about the design and having hands on experience preparing and building. Manuals will be supplied over the weekend for you to refer to when building your own. You will also have help and guidance via correspondence should you need it when you get started.
These structures can be used as greenhouses, studios, gardenrooms, sunrooms etc, pending on what you choose to cover it with.
