January 18, 2004 the dome was raised.

Thirteen friends and family assisted moving the dome nearly 300 feet from my garage to the building.
It was 14 degrees with 12 inches of snow on the ground.  The trip was made without incident and the
dome was placed on sawhorses so we could plan how to best raise it ontop of the building.

I owe a deep debt of gratitude to my Brother Mark who independently
fabricated a drive system for my dome out of spare machine parts he had
in his basement.  It works flawlessly and I have yet to see a similiar design.
