Ready for Winter
December 16, 2017
Today I got the building ready for winter.
I first made a hole for an outdoor power outlet which I’ll temporarily use to feed temporary power into the building.
Adam came by to cover the dome as well. He used a blow torch to de-ice the perimeter of the dome and then covered it with plastic sheeting according to the instructions that came with the kit.
He also lent me an 80k BTU space heater and a high-powered fan. Together they raised the temperature in studio about 20 degrees in one hour.
I put the door sweep on the single door and made some final adjustments to ensure it was plumb and square so it sealed properly.
I also put in the double doors. The door panels are twisted a bit, so they don’t meet very well in the center.
