Most members of Stellar Skies will want an observatory at the dark sky site. We have teamed up with local contractor Jarret Lingle of Paladin Framing Services in Pontotoc, Texas to build roll off roof observatories for Stellar Skies. Jarret has 20 years experience in construction and he has built structures of all kinds. His quality is on display at the dark sky site both in the observatories and our large deck at the front of our lodge. Jarret can do both the framing and concrete work for you observatory. This includes concrete piers and footers.
All roll off roof observatories include a metal roof in the color of your choice (white highly recommended for heat reflection), HardiePlank siding, and door(s) with locks. Frame is 16" on center with 2" x 4" stud walls and the walls are 6' high. What is not included is roof motor or installation, electrical work, and pier construction. These are all available but at an additional cost (see below). Some extra construction options such as electrical work will require consultation with the member to spec out materials and design.
