Insulating the Wall

First some Great Stuff in the cracks, then leftover pink board remnants, then some more great stuff.  No construction adhesive necessary!

Here is a door I scavenged from a neighbor up the street.  I watched a local punk kick in the glass right as I pulled up!  Not hard to fix though.


Here is the doorway.  If I were to do it again, I would be sure to make the doorway in the middle of one of the "A" strut pentagons for symmetry.  I would also consider building the doorway inwards rather than out, even if some space is lost.  The reason I chose the hard way is because I plan to build a second inner door with a vestibule.
 You can see here where I laid two 24" pavers to help with the wheelbarrow.  We'll see if they remain permanent.

Doorway is up!

Sorry I have been out of touch for a while.  I have been working slowly.  Latest updates are a doorway that was challenging to set up.  Now I know why everyone places the door well into the perimeter rather than at the outside wall.

After fitting the doorway, I laid some large pavers to help with the traffic.

Other than that, I have been cleaning up the job site, re-grading around the outside of the dome, and moving dirt around.  I am also shaping my pond after realizing that the footprint was way too big.

Pictures tomorrow!
