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.
