Cost Per Square Foot / Square Meter?
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"
@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...
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
Cubic '' Cubic Feet "Bags of
Portland (94lbs) " "Water

5.5 7 $10.03

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