Re: Pacific Domes question
i've seen many of pacific domes products. i am not entirely
pleased with the way they marketed themselves one year at
burning man, but i can chalk it up to inexperience.
their domes are great semi-permanent structures. when i
was bidding on a geodesic in lake tahoe, i had plans to buy
a pacific domes shell (no cover) to put over a hot tub in
the yard, then interweave with sticks to form a snow-cave
over the tub.
you can climb on them, hang hamocks, and they are totally
great in the harsh weather of black rock city. easy to
assemble. you *could* live in one year round in many climates
but i imagine that the shell would need replacing eventually.
