Monterey Dome in Wyoming needs new roof.

I have seen other threads on this topic so it's good to know there is information out there.

I am in Wyoming. My Monterey dome needs a new roof and the manufacturer is no longer in business. It was built it from a kit in 1981, but not by an architect so there is no where to turn to for help. I'm hoping that someone can advise a local roofer here so that this project is done right.

I know I want an ice shield, I know that the current shake roof, while beautiful, leaks air directly into the house (it gets cold in Wyoming!!), and I know I can't put shakes back on this roof thanks to my insurance. The roof needs to have a cupola added too. I also have a huge skylight (44" on one side of a hexagon) and the roofers here do not know where to find one to replace it other than having one custom-built ($$$$!!) I know domes are still a rare style of home, but surely there are skylights out there for them!

Photos are attached,
Thanks in advance for all help!!

That's pretty wild. I've never seen a house like that.
