After ordering the dome from Sidereal Trading in Melbourne, it arrived in a big truck after only a few days.
The shipment consisted of three big boxes.
This box contains the door and some wall panels.
Matching up the parts with the instructions.
First I assembled the dome section on our back patio.
The view from the living room.
Meanwhile, the concreters came and poured the slab. The orange conduit carries power from the house and the black things are plastic flower pots to create holes in the slab for the tripod legs.
The dome section fully assembled.
Testing the tripod for fit. Each leg rests on a paving stone in a hole in the slab. This isolates the tripod from the slab to minimise vibration.
