    Great video, very informative and makes me think i can just about build one… just. I look forward? to your updates and wish you all the best!

    The diameter is 20 feet the height is 12 feet.

    Google: kasper postawski companies and down load eden dome revolution to get directions as to how to set up jigs to cut the struts and build the dome.

    goggle:? simply differently dome – dome notes – The Icosahedron. that will give you a page where you can choose the frequency you want. then add the diameter you want. and you will be given the angles and lengths for your struts.

  • TheSpookyflame:

    Hi there,? could you post me your measurements for this please?

  • Candoract:

    I’d try desert domes dot com,? great calculator

    Hey I would also appreciate the web site so I can also build one. I have a good location and some extra time and would love this project so I can grow some healthy food year? around! I only have one growing season here in Iowa! Please guide me to the right place! CAlvin

  • garystiles:

    there is a web site in which you set the diameter you want and it gives you all the angles. youtube wont let me post it here but if you give me your email address I can send it to you. There? is a site in which I downloaded a manual that shows how set up jigs to cut all the angles. I can direct you to that asite as well.

    Correction? Mathematically.

    Would you be interested? in posting your measurements for asthmatically challenged people like myself?

    Hi Gary,
    Thanks for Sharing.. How do I determine Radius and lengths and angles, Etc.. Any ideas? I? want to build a Frame cover it with Thick Foam, then rebar, then concrete so the unit can be buried under shallow earth.

    I’d like to pick your brain for a sawing sequence for a DIY 14 ft 2V? dome greenhouse. A hay bale perimeter knee wall will elevate the dome for 10 ft height.
    Got a new compound miter saw but no experience.I’d prefer to use screws to “toe nail’ the struts without any separate hubs. I’m “upcycling” by using dog-eared boards from an old cedar fence. I’ll rip each board in half. Once I have all my cedar 2 ply struts cured what do I cut first? Straight strut lengths, a bevel or miter cut ?

    @sustainable2012
    About $900 including the dome, cover, barrels, piping, stone and fish. $500? for the special miter saw.

  • garystiles:

    The fish are getting big the veggies are growing well. I’m insulating the north wall with 1/2 inch reflective foam sheets, and have place 3 – 55 gallon drums with water as a heat sink. I will be making a followup video when I get some time. I need to get a automatic window opener so I can have it close when the sun goes down without having to be there. It gets very hot during a sunny day,? and is warm even during rainy cold spells.

  • k9klf:

    Fantastic job. Any chance you can? give us an update?

  • garystiles:

    A person in Northwood, NH has a pile of them he sells for $25 a each.?

  • NewEnglandgardening:

    Nice video, Where did you get the blue? barrels?

  • garystiles:

    Yes I’m in New Hampshire and plan? to make some heat collectors and pump water from more barrels through them. the fish and vegies are doing great. I will be doing an update as things progress.

  • RegenerationFood:

    Thanks for posting this. I’m educating myself to build a productive? aquaponics biodome. Wondering if you’re in a cold winter climate and are planning on year-round growing? I understand a large water tank will help maintain warmth in snow regions. Thinking I’d like to go a little bigger diameter for more food. I like the base wall you built, allowing for more vertical area. I got this crazy idea of how nice it would be to have a basement underneath for temporary living. Ever come across that?

  • garystiles:

    I went cheep to begin with and covered it with 6ml contractors plastic and bought a roll of bubble wrap. the 6ml blocked too much light so I bought 8ml clear plastic and replaced the south 6ml triangles. I wish I used it in the first place. the venting has been a challenge. What worked the best is? to use 2/3s. I used the calculator to get the length of the struts to fit inside the opening.

  • lutetube88:

    Looks great! Keep us updated! I’m currently building a 15″ 3V greenhouse, What type of covering are you using? Its hard to tell, but looks like the kedar stuff.
    How long is the life expect. of the plasic?
    How? is your greenhouse vented? Sorry for all the questions!

    thanks
