Domemade Green house / Conservatory build

Green house companys charge up to £6 000 pounds for a greenhouse of this size or even higher. A conservatory could cost up to £15 000. However see what one clever domemade customer did when he bought a 5 metre dome kit for £599.00 from domemade.

He had built the wall the day before and errected the dome frame within 2 hours.

He then sourced some precut poly carbonate panels from LIV SUPPLIES for around £469.00. Screws, fixings and water proof tape cost a further £20.00. The polycarbonate panels then screw directly onto the wooden dome frame.

After an hour its time for a break

As the panels go on you can see the amazing geometric patterns take form and get a real sense of space.

The world's most extravagant rabbit hutch

We were recently contacted by the owner of Bobby the rabbit, who felt Bobby was feeling depressed with his regular hutch. He didn't have much room to exercise and felt his hutchs interior was dated and in need of a revamp.

Domemade recommended one of its 4 metre geodesic dome kits to give Bobby plenty of room to exercise and grass to nibble.

This is fantastic thought Bobby.

Team Building Exercise at Birklands Old Mill

One of our original 6 metre diameter domes got put to good use as a basis for a team building exercise at Birklands Old Mill in Kendal. 

The 65 piece structure took a 5 man team of neighbors 1 and a half hours to erect and cover. Within another hour the team were partying hard within and reflecting on their achievement.

Team leader Sandra Smith said: "I've never seen a project demand and enable people to work so cohesively as one. That the finished product actually provided a welcome place in which to reflect and celebrate was simply an added bonus. What a day!"
