Might want to read what Lloyd Kahn (Domeboodks I and II) says about Geodesic Domes after all these years. http://www.shelterpub.com/_shelter/refried_domes.html Might want to think about a) reciprocal roofs or b) earthbag domes, although you couldn't put the second type up so you can finish the rest of the building by yourself at your leisure--hoping you don't have a lot of wind to lift the roof up and sail it over Kansas to Oz instead. (I expect that I will be hoping I don't have a lot of wind, by the way). Tony Wrench's (has it been torn down?) is insulated with straw bales, by the way--and his book's very nice. http://www.thatroundhouse.info/ http://www.mts.net/%7Esabanski/pavilion/pavilion_design.htm http://www.calearth.org/ http://www.ok-ok-ok.com .............. Jamie wrote (snipped): just cob will cut it for warmth in the winter months. We need insulation too. SO I have come up with a hybrid idea with strawbale...and to make matters more complicated..hehehe I MUST have a geodesic dome roof! My basic idea is to erect the roof first on riser posts with a very wide overhang brim around the base of the dome shell.
