Happy New Year from Dome World

Ring around the domeThe ice & snow is partly melted off from the last round of storms, but the driveway at the dome (which wasn't plowed) is still pretty much a skating rink. An interesting phenomenon that we have noticed: Falling snow tends to form a circular drift all the way around the dome, in a ring about 10 feet or so from the outside wall. It's mostly melted in this picture, but right after the snowfall it was drifted a good 12" deeper than the rest of the snow. We're not sure why this happens... it likely has something to do with the way the air moves around the dome, but that's just our highly imprecise guess.

Rub-a-dub-dubRub a dub dub, there's a frame around my tub.

Dang, there's still a lot of work to do before I can drywallMike contemplates the framing to be done on the second floor. First will be the half-wall along the second floor loft so I can stop holding my breath every time he walks up there.

Love the new tub.
I have been looking at one that looks like that at Lowes.
Is that this one also?
When are you all going to try it out?
