What Did It Cost

I will keep a running tab of The Bill.

My goal is to keep the entire cost less than the freight both ways and the repair cost were I to drop The Beast. I figger about $1250. The dome being the major share of that expense.

That is what led the Domestic Authority to approve The Asylum in the first place. A decision I am grateful for.

Anything less than about $2850 is gravy. That being the price of a Dome and walls from the Mfgr.

As of Feb 1st, the Total is ... $1506

(--) Means it was leftovers from some previousproject.
