I was always interested in how people invented such wonderful facilities, just did all the calculations and picked the right materials for them to be strong and safe. Several days ago in the web space I found picture of dome home and fell in love with it! In addition, build dome house is much cheaper than a brick one. My husband, who is essay writer and I decided to build such a house for ourselves. Will you be able to create lesson and explain the structure and reliability of such house? Thanks!
