ScopeDome: Putting it all together
The rain and strong winds made it impossible to make any progress. The weather finally cooperated and we could finish assembling the outer shell of the dome. The panels are huge, heavy, and awkward. With only three people to do the job, only a few pictures could be taken. Yoshikun, Erika's brother, was a tremendous help and without him it would have been impossible to complete the assembly. Thank you!
After the major components were in place, it was a matter of tightening and sealing a lot of bolts. The door and shutter were installed later.
All of the exterior seams required sealant. This completed the exterior assembly. Up next is the installation of the interior dome components.
