Finishing Up the Dome Cover Install...

Just a quick update about my progress with the dome cover installation
As you can see everything is now white and integrated

The dome cover was cut, glued and sealed over the entry plywood roof. 
It was a challenge because the vinyl cover was already creasing and not laying flat. At first, I thought it might be tension somewhere but even after waiting for several months for it to settle. It just seems to be one of the cons of this particular type of material. 
I didnt have those issues with the first cover, but it was canvas. 

Because water flows best 'over' things- the vinyl had to go 'on top' of the existing dome entry roof. 
Additional vinyl panels were added at the bottom end / nearer the edge. 
Like-wise with the sides... from the dome to the dome entry wall. The vinyl cover goes on top of the wall and then additional pieces were added to seal the top part of the wall. 

I'm actually very pleased with how it turned out and our first rain proved it to be a success in terms of water tightness.
Yay !
