Here''s a nice design for a geodesic dome potting shed or low cost consevatory. Very simple and cheap to build with a very low part count.
All you need is a wall, take a look at the rendered view below to see what a nice usefull structure this would make, I''m not really a big fan of 2 frequency domes but I think design jsut about make the gade.
I was thinking of having this design manufactured as a self build kit, if anyone is interested drop me a line and I''ll put one together for you.

Would love this as self build kit... what sort of price we looking at? would make great addition onto a house where entrance is to make it eco friendly. Think it is brilliant. Does it need permission?
PS would have it in Italy
I have just finished making my first dome. It is only a 1m dia. but ideal as a cold frame. Anyway here are some pictures.
I used the hub and strut method and to fix it together I made some simple metal plates on the under side. I plan to try the same method but using pocket holes/screws on the outside of the frame, so I'll keep you posted.
I would also be very interested in this as a kit
