Satellite Storage Sheds
Jon Bell made four buildings with satellite dish roofs and vertically positioned roofing tin for the walls. The vertical tin is fastened with deck screws to horizontally-mounted circular wooden ribs which Bell cut out with a band saw and assembled. He used a reciprocating saw to cut elliptical windows into the tin walls, then clamped pieces of salvaged rectangular safety glass over the openings from the inside.
    The floors are made from one side of a large wooden cable reel.
    "These buildings have no studs in the walls. The vertical roofing tin is able to hold up the satellite dish because of the curvature of the walls and the corrugations in the tin," says Bell.
    "The building shown in the photo is an internet cafe for students at a summer camp. I also use the buildings as storage sheds. The inside space is surprisingly roomy with the domed ceiling. Since this building is used only during the summer, it doesn't need any insulation or heating.
    "The entire building cost only about $20 for a used door and a few dollars for paint."
