Finished Dome Pics


Here are the finish pics of the dome I framed last year. I think it turned out amazing!! Please note that I only framed it and had no part in drywall or painting. There are little "gems" imbedded into it. Some day I will get a nice camera

Re: Finished Dome Pics


I've seen your framing pic before, but after seeing the final product....that's awesome!

Did you tie factory trusses into your custom framing?....20' off the ground?

I'm not sure how you did it....IMO....figuring how to install the dome was as big if not a bigger challenge than building the dome to spec....Regardless... the framing is way more impressive than the finished product!

Great stuff!

Nothing against the finished product, but the framing pic is prettier.
