Definitely a dome

The Fam got back from France ok.

Civil Engineering Firm2 is officially signed on and the folks are surveying Hearthwood and collecting data. Of course we are paying through the nose in comparison to MH&A, but this is a professional firm and we expect them to get things done.

Linda Boothe from Oregon Domes, Inc. is being quite helpful in selecting a plan, but is a bit busy, so we haven’t set on a final one yet. We definitely think Oregon is the way to go though. They primarily do plans that stick to the “dome” concept. Others are “extension” crazy. Extensions are the things that make a dome (think birds-eye-view here) look more like a turtle. Would you rather shingle a larger diameter dome or a small dome with several extensions (think of all those troughs and crests)?
