I am interested in your line of shelters.  Some basic questions.

I will be using this for retreat shelter In the desert of West Texas.  In summer it gets over 100 degrees.  How does your roof top sun shade fit onto the dome?

The Roof Top Sun Shade is a separate structure and is not intended to be attached on top of a dome but can be attached to and create a shaded porch next to the dome. However:

Our Sun Shades can be pulled over the pole structure white out to reflect the sun, black in to block it. There is a generous air space under the shad to allow hot air to escape.

I would get enough shades to cover most of the top of your dome yet position the shades so as to create a gap up near the top to let hot air out. If the air out side the dome is 100 the air inside the dome will be at least r each100 unless you air condition the dome (there is no way to escape this) but at least you can be in the shade.
