We discussed about the supports needed for the Geodesic Dome roof over the Garage front end in Supports-for-Front-Face-of-Garage-Geodesic-Dome-Home-in-Michigan-Part1-RobD1-101

The Geodesic Dome roof over the Garage is at the second floor level. The front face of the dome was shaved off to allow for a straightened front face with windows over the header for a 3 car Garage at the lower level -- there is one double door and 1 -single door.

For the node points near the end walls, the logical option was to take the supports to the floor structure, and for the 3 interior points we found that the best option was to support those on the header over the garage doors. I have highlited the node points at which the terminated Geodesic Dome needs to be supported in the design-sketch.

I present here the design-sketch for the supports -- I will keep you posted with more details and pictures as we progress further along.
