Dear Paul and Ilene, I have built one 8 feet by 8 feet and 6 feet high. It is weatherproof. If you are interested I can send you some jpegs of the structure showing the design. I had it built by a local garden shed and garage sheet metal builder. Email me at if you want the jpegs. Regards David McKinnon

: We are in the process of designing a sliding roof observatory and are interested in having dialogue with anyone who has been involved with building one. We are specifically interested in weatherproofing designs.
