Here is an 11’ diameter 2v geodesic garden shed that I built.
I built this to prove a theory that I had that computer design and accurate miters/construction screws would result in a cheaper/easier and faster to build geodesic construction than the expensive and sometimes flimsy/unwieldy hubs that I see often in designs. this was most definitely realized as the entire construction up to the shingling was completed in two full days work.
The biggest challenge was the shingles, but overall, I was very happy with the outcome. Very roomy and the round shape caused absolutely no issues for space utilization as I thought it might.
