We got our first window sill done! The metall border to the glass is not very straight, so very problematic to connect even with special tape from 3M - probably need a thicker tape for the other windows.

And one vault has gotten the names of all participants, 1st and 2nd workshop, written in the plaster. Hope we did not forget about anyone...

In the end - PARTY TIME in the dome! Well deserved!
