After the cable is tightened to specifications, there is another significant moment in this unique building process….

Removing the scaffolding from under the skylight ring and taking off the plywood ‘floor’ that covers the opening.


This is what it looks like with the scaffold in place 

Here’s a link to a video that shares with you a few moments of this process. It also gives you a sense of the quality of space that is being created in this Mandala~ enjoy!



 Voila! Some people call this large center opening “The Gods Eye” …a skyward looking window to the world outside of the home. In this moment, I’d say that there are some lovely angels looking in on our Mandala home;  Bruce, Daniel, Lars, Luke and Dan. Thanks, guys!

Closing up the skylight hole involves the careful transportation of the actual skylight:


it looks pretty amazing from this angle
