When it comes to backyard projects, there’s nothing like a do-it-yourself build to get the whole family out in the fresh air for a while. The Hubs maximizes that concept with an easy-to-use kit that brings everyone together, even the kids, to construct a geodesic dome you can call your very own. After a successful crowdfunding campaign , The Hubs is headed into production and will soon be available for purchase, when you’ll be able to get your hands on a ready-to-build kit with all the necessary pieces and parts, or just the bare bones so you can supply your own wooden dowels. The design is simple and you’ll recognize it from children’s toys such as K’nex, as the Hubs is based around snap-together joints. The result is a fantastic durable structure that can be imagined in any number of different ways: a quiet garden, a kids’ hangout, a cozy reading nook, or even an outdoor room for dining al fresco. Read on to see more examples, and learn how to get a kit for your family! READ MORE >
