..last year I started drafting up plans for a brand new wooden dome. On June 7, 2003, my dream of a truly domed observatory finally came to fruition.

The entire project took about 3 weeks to complete and actually was not as much work as I thought it would be. The total material cost is estimated to be about $500.00.
