General Information

     Domes are available in a complete do-it-yourself Frame Kit, including the following:      We offer our domes at a SUPER VALUE price for a remarkable product that you will use and enjoy for many years. Domes are very rigid and will support weight such as shelving, hanging baskets, lights, snow, etc. Our domes are designed to be easily assembled with common hand tools. Lumber used is 2 x 4, (or other as specified) white and yellow pine; best grade available. Clear oil based weather sealer/preservative is applied to all lumber as a standard procedure. (Keep freezing moisture out of your wood!) An optional weather protector is available, "White Coat" that is a coating of exterior grade white latex paint brushed on. Domes made from steel (emt tube) or aluminum (hollow square or round extrusion) are an alternative to wood strut domes that we can manufacture. Write us about other dome ideas.
     Domes are also completely portable, taken apart piece-by-piece or by sections (or lifted as a unit with several men or proper equipment). Our exclusive Construction Connector System makes assembly quick and easy with only basic mechanical skills required. Actual assembly (the basic frame) takes approx. 3-8 hours for most domes; depending on dome type and size, number of workers, and if regular or power tools are used (you can use an air powered ratchet for wood dome assembly).
     Shipping for a complete dome Frame Kit depends on destination and weight. Smaller domes may be shipped by UPS in several boxes. For instance: 1 x 2 and 2 x 2 domes to 20 ft. (most cases), steel tube domes/spheres. Larger domes (2 x 4, 2 x 6) may weigh several hundred lb. We will use the most economical freight delivery from our manufacturing facility in Beaumont, Tx. to your location. Send your Zip Code for an estimate. A cost saving option is renting a truck or trailer and doing the transporting yourself.
