In need of some extra storage space on their property in the state of Washington, Tim and Nathan Lewis wanted something different from the typical shed, so they purchased a Shelter Dome Kit from sonostar.com.
Once the boxes arrived, they picked a level place to lay out a tarp that they had purchased from a local hardware store to go underneath the dome.
They started with the bottom ring of the dome to get an idea of how large the final dome would be.
After planning where the door would be, they built upwards while leaving a triangle open for the door.
Almost there! Luckily, they had a rolling scaffold to make the job easier, but could have managed with a six foot step ladder.
With the frame completed, it was then time to put the cover on.
With the dome completed, they then just needed to move everything a into its final position. What a beauty! Since the completion of the dome, the Lewises have gotten a lot of interest and positive comments about their cool new structure.
We caught up with Jose Sanchez, owner of Pure Baja Travel, initially to get some feedback about his experience with theSonostar Glamping Domes. We got a lot more than we bargained for, as he freely shared with us his encyclopedic knowledge of the whales’ anatomies, habits, and social behaviors.
