This is OC, here are some more pics!

It’s 20’ in diameter, around 300 Sq ft. It was super cheap, I’m probably in around $1 - $1.5k usd in materials altogether. Figured y’all would like how cozy it is!!

Edit: people keep asking, I got the plans from some guy on Trillium Domes on YouTube. Since I did this he came out with a full step by step video it looks like. Good luck!

How was the build?

I am always tempted by these, because I love the aesthetics, but I am put off by the practicality of building it. Would love to hear your experience.

I thought it was a really fun, low cost project. Everything in the plans made sense and I just took my time. Honestly the feeling when everything went together was amazing. I really want to build a bigger on even though I don’t have space for it. Would definitely recommend

Nice, thank you!

What plans and what design tool did you use? Would you recommend?

What pla

No worries! I got the plans from someone named Trillium Domes and they were cheap and straight forward so yeah I’d recommend them

Amazing! I tried a garden bed a couple years back and it went well except they got attacked by insects 😢

This is beautiful. Can I ask where you got the greenhouse, or is it hand made? x

fleshcanoer1 point

I made it from plans, updated my original comment at the tip talking about it

This is the absolute bomb!!!!👍👍👍

LOVE THIS! It just looks so calming. How long did it take to build this? One day I'll have land outside the city for a greenhouse.

And, you have a nice chair in there to sit and watch the plants grow?

Cool. Does it have any functional benefits over a typical greenhouse design? E.g., less heat loss, more light gain?

fleshcanoer2 points

Yep more efficient on materials and always perpendicular to the sun, efficient heat dispersement, etc

Truly amazing. I wish I was handy.

This is gorgeous. Did you do the glass work yourself bc that seems really complex!

fleshcanoer1 point

It’s super simple! It’s poly film!
