That is just awesome! It takes my breath away to look at that. Tell us a little about the design. Did they employ an architect? Those lines, and the way the light of the windows shines through the . . . 'windows'. . . in the ceiling. It's just incredible. Still looks tiny from the outside, but much larger on the inside.

Wow! Great job Steve!

Hi Kirk, Yes, they had an architect. When the contractor contacted him with some questions about the design and the angles, he just said, "Good luck". It is pretty amazing. I thought it would look kinda goofy when I saw the framing, but now that it is done it "hangs together" and the acoustics are great (the sound was absolutely dead in the old chapel that the dome was part of).
Its one for the portfolio for sure.
