Thanks Joe, good luck with your project. The basalt products are impressive. When I tried to order some they were very expensive to bring to Hawaii so I haven't experimented with them yet. Let me know what you discover. Maybe we can get some for the Aug workshop?
Yeah, definitely in the berm and probably a 2" sub-floor of AC under my mass floor(brick/concrete/flagstone). Also I'm thinking the integrated green-house planters could use a 2" liner of AC for improved insulation during the winter and further moisture barrier.
Sounds like a great idea, but I dont see that the airkrete and the aircrete(domegaia cellular concrete) have the same consistency. What seem to make airkrete an insulator is the magnesium concrete properties. Portland cement behaves differently. The aircrete or cellular concrete mixture that is shown on the domegaia videos looks much denser than that foam of the airkrete company. Since they are 2 completely different products then you may need to contract someone that is a specialist in airkrete. I guess you could inject cellular concrete by yourself, but you would have to use a different formula and experiment to get to that foamy consistency of the airkrete.com website. You wont have the same properties, though. The magnesium concrete absorbs CO2 while its curing and cures much faster than cellular concrete. I have not seen anyone successfully spray the aircrete on the domegaia videos or cellular concrete in any other video. The spraying process would surely kill the foaming that you had to achieve to get the aircrete. Spraying requires going to a fine nozzle under high pressure and the airkrete you are talking about is already a foam that is "injected".

Awesome! When I get back to work next week I want to order a block as well so I can look at it and dream of when I eventually build my own home. I'm homeless but live on the semi I drive and make very good money.
