e roof made on the basis of its own growth.As a result, the angle of the roof was found to be 34 degrees.

as materials for the construction of the arbor he used: timber 50h100h6000 mm 100h100h6000 mm.On the floor spread a floorboard 38h188h6000 mm.All the details of the structure put together using fasteners Perforated reinforced corners and plates.

Wooden structures processed antiseptic and color Aquatex.The roof was covered with profiled Ondex, the color of bronze (with UV protection) size sheets 1020h2000 mm.

Again it is time to search for the manufacturer's website but the domes, he did not find it satisfying the requirements of the information, because everything is designed for small batch production.

As a result, he had to develop its own mounting system which allows you to assign one point to eight struts converging to it almost at random angles.For the manufacture of fastening segments used parts with bore.
