Cost Per Square Foot / Square Meter?



  • Hello Everyone
    I asked this about two months ago with no reply
    Will anyone share what the square meter or square foot cost of an AirCrete dome in $USD?

    From the standpoint of a "do it your self"
    Anybody?



  • @Concrete-Pete Hello! We estimate a cost of $1 per square foot, per inch of thickness. This covers the AirCrete, fabric, and foundation. Hope this helps!



  • @Concrete-Pete I made a rough spreadsheet to estimate dome cost. It doesn't include any finishing...

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yfGG-hMtYmg_E7xwQBfajyCuxWw1bwZcuC0PJRfuoQU/edit?usp=drivesdk

    Just select the thickness, in feet, in the green cells.
    Please let me know if it works.

    **Edit. I updated the spreadsheet to allow selection of values.



  • @HandyDan Very cool, Dan! Your contributions are greatly appreciated. Keep up the great work!



  • I am designing a Nubian arch aircrete modular dome system. I have very limited resources so I came up with a design which lets me build a "room" to live in and then add "rooms" as needed. I have a solid modeling program which lets me build an exact model and it gives me total cubic inches and other info. I made a spreadsheet using all the data I could glean from the DomeGaia sight and I get this
    0_1512618013986_upload-05b229f1-6289-4df3-aee3-932a5f5fe192 Cubic '' Cubic Feet "Bags of

    This is just the Portland cost. I have not figured out how far the Drexel or Dawn dish soap goes.
