Built a Dome Cottage

The Dome Cottage

Joseph built a geodesic dome in 1977 as an experiment in construction and to prove he could do it from his own calculations using the Buckminster Fuller design. It became a 2-bedroom cottage and was a conversation piece on the property for many years. It began to leak in 1997 and was difficult to repair because of the unusual shape of every piece. Eventually its roof collapsed under heavy wet snow in 2001 and it was then dismantled. All that is left now is the circular concrete slab at campsite 2.
