We use an extra piece of the foil

insulation

and push it up against the inside of the

dome

. It forms to it nicely and makes a HUGE difference in heat near the

dome

. We leave ours up all summer, but it's literally just pushed in their and takes two seconds to remove and replace.

Here is a pic of our solution. We got the shade screen on Amazon (Something like this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LBUO22K/...rldwidecreatio), then just cut it larger than our screen insert and placed the screen insert up there.



We used 60 or 70% block to give a good amount of shade. This also allows us to open the dome whenever needed.

Off yurts. I make my own wood arrows. With regards to cap, crest, and finish materials, (paints) I've learned to make a test arrow due to failure of the finish not bonding to the cap and crest. I once built two dozen that the finish didn't stick. I even set them in direct sun for several days and that didn't make a difference. It peeled right off with a thumbnail. That learned me fast because it takes ALOT of work to scratch build arrows..
