Dome Mud Dome

This is the Dome I began a couple weeks ago. We’ve realized it would be nice to have a cool cave to hide in during 100-plus weather. Using a string tied to a piece of re-bar pounded into the ground, I traced a circle, then dug down about a foot…this should make for better insulation from the earth. Slow going at first, as I used a foot-thick wall at the base, but as it begins to curve dramatically upward and inward, it’ll pick up speed. This will have a palm-frond shade over it and a vent at the top. I’ve put conduit through a wall so we can run an extension cord in to power a fan and laptop.

Is this thing on?

There’ll be a brief pause whilst makes a subtle shift. Please be patient; Rome wasn’t eaten in a day.

Please feel free to share your thoughts, images, etcetera in your comments attached to this thread.

Rest assured, is an Universal Constant, kinda’ like pie.
