Greetings! We came across your beautiful home through the timberland website. I wanted to ask you a few questions....
~What sort of costs for the total project other than buying the land are we looking at?
~Can the skylights be opened for ventilation?
~How does the home handle summer heat?
~How long from beginning to end did it take for the both of you to finish such a beautiful home?
~Do you have any finished pics?
~Is there anything that you would recommend to someone that you learned by trial and error?
We are EXTREMELY interested in doing a double mulberry as our home. And we really could use your advice.
Please email us as xtremecritic@yahoo.com
Thanks for your time and have a wonderful day!

I LOVE YOUR HOME THAT I FOUND ON TIMBERLLAND. I AM CONSIDERING A DOME HOME HERE IN FLORIDA BECAUSE OF IT'S EFFICACY AGAINST STRONG WINDS; I LIVE IN HURRICANE COUNTRY. YOUR STEP BY STEP PHOTOS REALLY SHOWED ME WHAT TO EXPECT WITH REGARD TO CONSTRUCTION. I LOVED THE BEAUTIFUL LOCAL FLORA AND SEASONAL PHOTOS THAT YOU INCLUDED WITH YOUR PHOTOS. THANKS FOR MAKING ME BELIEVE THAT I CAN DO IT!
