Geodesic Dome Greenhouse… Can You Build One In Your Backyard?

Do You Want A Geodesic Dome Greenhouse? I Do!

I have always wanted to build a geodesic dome greenhouse. From the first time I saw one. I remember it as if it was yesterday?
 
In a hurry?

Now, those of you who know me know I’m a bit of a research and information junkie. (No really, don’t roll your eyes like that, they might get stuck! LOL) So it’ll be no surprise to you that before starting to build a dome greenhouse in my back 20 that I did a bit of research.

(ok, ok so it’s only the back 3 but shhhhhh… I’m having delusions of grandeur here, don’t burst my bubble!)
