Garden Dome 2

Garden Dome 2 greenhouse
The 15 foot diameter dome is shown above and below, covered with our 11 mil Super Poly woven poly tarp. We use hot melt glue and rustproof staples to attach the Super Poly.
Using 8 ft lumber, a 15 ft diameter dome can be made with efficient use of board length, sawing two dome struts per board - the 65 struts can be made from 33 boards.
13 more 8 ft boards are needed to make the 25 struts for the Base Option. It's an excellent low cost dome that is very strong.
