Status update 28/12/18

With the year coming to an end – an update on the DOME home status for 2018, in picture form:

IMG_20181228_174021Figure 2: 16mm pocket holes were drilled using 16mm countersink bit & radial arm drill press. 2- screws per connection will be used. Buildex 14-10 x 100mm timber screws were pre-drilled.

IMG_20181228_225815Figure 7: 4 hexagon modules are complete. The design distance across the diagonals is 1850mm. The as-built hexagon modules range from 1847mm to 1855mm across the diagonals – this error seems tolerable.
