    Thanks Muddled

    I always like to have a project or two on the go.

    The next project is probably going to be the sump tank and fish tank for the aquaponics and the heat recovery system for the dome.

    It gets very hot in the dome in the day time so I plan to duck the warm air down through the water to warm the water and cool the air.

    Then at night the water will slowly loose that heat back out into the dome.

    That's the theory anyway

    They are very stable in a wind. They never present a flat side to the wind so cope much better with wind than either tunnels or greenhouses.

    PS: A fantastic domed greenhouse, dear Paul. On the functional level, the extra head room/growing height is a great advantage over conventional greenhouses. And the aesthetics - quite wonderful!

    Thank you. Yes the height is great (3 metres) and because of the wooden structure it is easy to fix wires for vines etc

    and another question- if I may?

    What do you do for ventilation?

    We hit 40C in the summer and I wouldn't want to bake everything....
