CONSTRUCTION COST ESTIMATES
The following prices are approximations to help you in estimating the cost of your completed dome.
Labor costs can be substantially reduced by supplying some sweat equity. Some items listed may not be needed,
thus lowering costs. Or, you may choose to add items such as
a whirlpool tub, hardwood floors, or custom cabinetry, thus increasing costs.
