Pat Haire sits inside one of the geodesic playground domes he is selling made from galvanized steel tubing. The domes have plenty of room for a gang of kids to play house, or can be used as a smaller and safer set of monkey bars. Haires neighborhood on East Garfield is populated with the domes. The finished dome stands about four feet high and is so sturdy that a grown man can stand on top without distorting it. Haire has made other domes of various sizes for tool sheds, outhouses, cabins, etc.
