    I want one!! No! I want several! I have an acre to plant, and I want to have at least a quarter of it in greenhouse space.

    ooh, love this! My DH is a math teacher; he loves anything geometric--I'll bet I could get him to build me one pretty easily ;)

    This is so nice to know that one can be built inexpensively. There is a large one at Rodale Farms here in PA, and I had wanted one since I saw it but didn't think it possible due to cost. Perhaps after we move and get settled eventually, we will try

    I've built the domes using a kit from the Stromberg's Chick catalog. They sell something called the Starplate System, 13 metal plates with holes for the bolts and slots for the 2x4's.
