Pat et al., this letter came in to the DomeHome email list today. I've
replied to the sender, and told him I would forward his letter to you all
at the DomeSteading List because of its relevance to your recent message
Could this be an opportunity to present our case for "more-with-less"
housing to a party who will listen?

I work at a shelter and clinic for homeless and low-income people
located in Portland, Oregon called Outside In. Outside In has existed
for thirty years in a group of modest restored old houses. In the next
few years, the agency would like to tear down several of the houses and
build one new larger building.
I am also an enthusiast for the work of Buckminster Fuller. I mentioned
to Kathy Oliver, the executive director of Outside In, that a dome might
be a good option for the new building. She said if I could present her
with any information she would be glad to review it.
Here is a quote from "The Orgegonian," July 16 1998 about what is needed
from the new building: "[T]he plan is to build a three-story building of
about 20,000 square feet at a cost of no more than $3 million [.]"
If any dome contractors can meet this need at this cost or less, please
send me printed information at the following address:
Trevor Blake c/o
1236 SW Salmon
Portland OR 97205 USA
I unfortunately cannot guarantee anything beyond a personal note of
thanks from myself, but I do hope that I can find a dome contractor /
manufacturer that can meet the agency's needs. Here's to good luck for
us all! Please feel free to reproduce and distribute this message as
you see fit.
