Welcome to Mountain View Dome!
This web site is dedicated to our friends and relative that have asked us to share our new adventure!

This web site started out being a documentary of our building adventure for our friends and family. Many others have joined our community of interested parties of thin shell concrete structures. We have totally revised this site as it grew to over 45 pages and over 1,600 photos today.

We have much more to share but just need the time to post additional pages.

Thanks for stopping by our site!

Ray & Beth Merrell
