|Window is in.|
Window was installed after work last week in the brief daylight we have left in the early evening.
Yesterday we got the weatherproofing tar paper on the walls and got the dome installed.
|Take the tarp off, and get dumped on! |
It was a short and heavy shower.
The dome flange needed a little coaxing (and yes, a little cussing - that's a requirement with anything with astronomy) to get it all lined up on the flange.
|With some tweaking and nudging, it fit on the square|
support pretty well.
|Ring around the dome, and wrapped walls|
|Half dome installed.|
I spent all of Saturday working on the dome install and other things with Traci's help. She did all the tar paper while I was up on top.
Our shortening days (Sunset around 6:45) is really making this a race before darkness to get done. As seen in the last photo, darkness doesn't stop me from the last few adjustments!
|At least I'm on a short ladder this time. The last observatory|
I was balanced dangerously on top of the "don't step here" step
on the step ladder.
