Garden Dome 2 Gallery
This dome is located in the Big Thicket National
Preserve near Beaumont, in southeast Texas.
The brick walkway leads you from the deck to the
The custom door of 3 dome triangles is
large enough for a wheel barrel or handicap access. Made of 2 x 2
and 1 x 2 wood, the door follows the same structural components and geodesic
lines of the main dome frame. Only three struts are removed for the door.
Inside the dome you will find a safe, warm home for
some happy ornamental plants. During freezing temperatures (if any!) a
small electric heater will be used to supply extra warmth.
This dome is covered with woven Super Poly and clearer
non-woven greenhouse plastic to cover the 2 window openings.
In this final image, the clearer plastic film used
on the windows can be seen and part of the door frame on the upper left.
