Does anyone know of a contractor, firm, or even an individual who can/would build a 10x12 roll off roof observatory? The site is in the Seagoville,TX area - about 30 minutes south east of downtown Dallas. It would be for the use of area school groups for astro programs while on field trips to the Environmental Education Center.

Backyard Observatories I believe will come to your location. Or you can get some plans and have a contractor just build off of the plans. I guess a lot would depend on your budget.
