Domed Skylight or Wall Windows- A Cheaper Alternative For Sheds/Cabins

Trace, drill a pilot hole, insert your jigsaw blade for cutting, screw the window in place....DONE. 

Above: The door to my "All Eights" cabin made a little/lot more interesting, with a petpeek window....

Whether its for building sheds, cabins, or even forts, and bringing natural light into their interiors, here's a solution/product I really dig.....domed windows that are actually intended for pet fences, but work GREAT as funky, modern, circular windows. They're INCREDIBLY easy to install too. I've used a few of them in current projects that will eventually be followed with video tours....and they're sold by a small cottage-industry company out of the U.S.- at around $35 a pop.

Little by little I'm adding to, and working on, this little guest cabin.....more recently, the teal flower box, domed window, and metal overhang on the side window (a scrap piece of metal from another project that was the perfect width) are all "new". I still have further plans for the interior, but I'm working on so many other things and don't feel a need to rush it- "Work on it when I feel like it" is my mantra, I suppose.
