Many people have had success with stucco coverings: I remain sceptical. Look around your neighborhood. Do buildings that need to stay dry have stucco roofs?

If you go the exposed dome route, think carefully about the various ways the water can get in. This includes the flue area, the opening around the door, the joint between the base and the dome.

Remember: wet insulation is pretty much no insulation.

You would need to cover blanket with something first! i used vermicrete. about 3 inches. then i tried stucco and it didn't hold up. i am in southern MA also. I think if you were real experienced with stucco you could make it work. I was not and it didn't. Here is a picture of mine

The render is way too thin, thats why it didnt work on top of the crumbly vermicrete.

You would need about 25mm at least I would have thought.

Nearly all the house on Santorini have concrete domed roofs.
