water munk: Can you send me the blue prints for it
CluckHutdotcom: Thank you! It is from a Royalty Free website. :)
Jan Wiedemeijer: Great job,, who is the music from?
CluckHutdotcom: It was about $1000 for EVERYTHING. Wood, plastic, poly, soil, etc. We also
freecycled quite a bit as well (siding, screen door). It's worth it though.
It may seem like a large up front cost, but if you think about how much you
spend on groceries a year, and if you are able to grow enough to preserve
some for the winter, it's definitely worth having a greenhouse.
CluckHutdotcom: When we pulled this Dome down due to moving, it had been up for two years
and the hubs didn't rot at all. If you are concerned with that, you can
always stain/seal your wood prior to wrapping with poly :)
Bob Glastron: Awesome!
jo seph: dont those plywood hubs rot???
vistigioful: Is the purpose of a greenhouse to trap in heat so the plants grow faster.
Myscimagic: how much wood total did you use ? how big around/high is it?
Gavin King: I'm interested in making a tunnel dome. Do you have any instructions or
would you recommend a book?
mschdk: Definitely it gives ideas! Lovely project you have there! And great use of
space. Great idea with the hubs, too!
Bambi Dunn: I like your idea of using a hexagon hub to connect your wood pieces. Can
you share the details of how you cut the hubs and the wood to get them to
join together snugly? I was wanting to use this same idea but perhaps use
bamboo instead of studs. Any help you could offer would be appreciated. I'm
a novice but a quick learner.
Brenda Hodgins: bravo!
CluckHutdotcom: I am planning to build a GeoTunnel this summer. I can't post a link in here
but you can search geodome UK and there is a UK site that will come up. in
their plans area you can purchase plans to build a 3 meter poly tunnel.
Robert Rochte: Very nice... How did you attach the poly to the frame? And is it cut to fit
or are there major folds hidden somewhere?
Bambi Dunn: I saw that short video clip after I sent this reply. It was helpful, but my
real concern is how big of a notch did you put in each stud. What there
some type of rhyme or reason to that, in other words, is it just enough to
insert hub, or did you have any extra wiggle room? And, are all your stud
lengths the same size? More info would be appreciated. Did you work off of
a plan/pattern design or how did you set it up?
SneakyTweezer: What are the round things that the plants are growing in? It looks like
rounded off pieces of red lava.
thomas reddick: your doing something right! nice job.
Joseph Neal: How much (estimate) would it cost to build this. I live in southern
Missouri and I'm wanting to have a greenhouse
CluckHutdotcom: I have a video on how I made the hubs in my youtube channel :) Try it with
Cedar! I only build the greenhouses and stuff now with cedar for the
Joshua Brown: Best DIY on geodesic I've yet to see! I'm laughing that 7 people decided
they dislike this! lol
craig mcf: what angle did you place your struts at?
Arsen Gramatikovski: Supet
Young Huynh: Thanks for sharing. I would like your mentorship and help with building one
for myself. Can you email the plans/pattern design and how to set it up?
Pls email me at email@example.com. Thank you
Adam Chou: Hi, could you help me with the Long side and shorter side lenght ratio?
CluckHutdotcom: they are hydraton balls. small clay balls. they absord water and allow for
nice root and plant growth. when the plant is done growing you simply pull
it out and re-use the balls again.
kroner78: This video is very inspiring! It is a truly beautiful contruction. I am
very curious as to the poly covering! It looks to be in one peice and
shrink to fit which has obviousley many benefits for insulation and
strength. What material is it?
CluckHutdotcom: my notches were 3/4" thick which is the same as the 3/4" ply I used. they
are inset 2". I drilled a 3/4" hole then cut the rest with a jig saw. the
angle of the main cut depends on the size you are building. how big of a
dome are you making? I used a dome calculator I found online in the UK. it
will tell you strut lengths, how many and what angles to use. once you have
this I can tell you how to figure out the hub.
CluckHutdotcom: @Dunnbambi - I can email you a picture of the 2x4 notch and measurements.
the cutout was fairly tight and 2" deep. when it is assembles he pressure
holds it together. I added extra screws at every joint just in case. we
built it from a dome calculator and then build a small scale model. As for
a mentor, I can give you all the information and help I can for free but
will however accept a donation for building future videos and projects when
you are up and running and found my information valuable
Anthony Comley: The dome is stunning any chance of emailing me the plans at
