I spent most of today (we had a nice sunny 70+ degree day on Oct. 19!) painting the observatory since this is possibly the last dry day for a while if the forecast holds true. I spent about 6 hours painting the observatory and pretty much got it done. I think the walls could use another coat, but for now it's fine. Maybe in the spring (or if we get another dry day) I could put some more paint on it.
The next task is to seal up the gaps in the dome, add some new screws and get it all tightened down and water tight. Then the tarp will come off and we can call the main structure done. Door still needs to be completed too.
Traci was doing some work on the roof today and got a "low aerial" shot of it. We designed it so it matches the house and the existing shed.
