Corners and eaves catch high winds. Thats why conventional constructions are always ripped apart by tornados and hurricanes. Flat roofs leak in rains, so a pitch needs to be added to the roof, adding complexity and expense. Aircrete domes have no roof so I suspect much less long term maintenance is needed as well.
sorry i lost ur mail.... now i got it :-)
JOHN, as i told u that i will not build a dome anymore. it was a nice idea.
i made different types of bricks, i still have some samples. and the tool for the foam. it works fine. u have to experiment urself, then u will see, its not as easy as u may think. to build the foam mashine was the most difficult, to make the bricks was just easy. u can get the mashine for a reasonable donation even the foam liquit if u want to make ur own experience.
There is a builder in Florida builds storm domes over 20 years.. he may know still trying to find him over Internet.. he a business person Florida been into dome storm shelters long long time .. I was just at that site alibaba and saw portal domes easy to build one day ship you a dome less 8,000!!! Or 5500.00 bucks can’t buopd with aircrete etc I look at all that is out there just for knowledge education I go everywhere to find out stuffs.. only state truly had no building codes is Texas .. Wyoming you need sewer but rest as long it’s outsyde city etc some putting tires on domes because they laws are so bad turn domes into mobile homes .. the system is for tree based homes not ego friendly .. all I can say loops holes.. their maybe me laws that use write as a emergency shelter so it bends the rules in your favors Montana is sorta ok but still reservations it’s worse my family lives pow camps that can’t some pow camps plant a orange tree afraid we’d over power the federal government it’s that bad America.
they were hairline cracks. we scarped it a bit and filled with crack fill. we have not used the fabric glue. instead we plastered it with cement and sand mortar. 1:4 ratio. with the polyester fabric.
we have kept for observation. its all look good so far. but we have noted down the mistakes in this process. as we didnot have any previous experience in building works.
thanks for ur appreciation

3 gallons of Dresses foam agent
Can you pleas describe or provide a link to this "Dresses foam agent"? I can't find it.
There are also other almost identical foaming agents available at local farm stores.
They are used for "row marking" where the tractor squirts droplets of foam so they can mark where they went.

@Kwagga sorry I don’t understand your question? Vids or pix of what. My project? I’m tearing my hair out trying to get a quote for the footings from local builders. They agreed to provide a quote in January and still haven’t come through.
