Looking myself, If I find anything, I will let you know. I've seen it on some vids on some of the workshops. You would think someone on here would help a couple of poor fellows out. Unless you have to attend a workshop to get the information. Just sayin.
@Kintore I’m looking forward to the replies on this one. A ten metre dome is something I too have been considering. In my case, the insulation is for the extreme heat of Australia, but the same logic applies.
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.
HI Cowra1 and Noni.
Please share any content you have of the build and finished houses. Very keen to have a look.
Would also like to know more about the council approval process. I am considering building one in Adelaide.
Thanks in advance.
@Jenw I have been looking in to Frost Protected Shallow Foundation. Google that term.
They do this much further north than Missouri or Kentucky. I will let your search explain it, but very worth looking in to. Keep in touch, you are close! JW
@Traveller 04: the clay soils have been classified as “highly reactive “ - which can experience “extreme ground movement” of more than 75mm when wet. I don’t know what this would be like for a rocket mass heater but it’s a bugger for foundations. My footings will have six rebars top and bottom to create one bloody solid raft to support the domes.
@fire Earthbag construction is so labor intensive but not as labor intensive as packing tires. I personally am going with the Monolithic Dome airforms. You could make your own airforms I have not done so myself, but i visited a home in CO where the home owners made the airforms. On there website they sell a book on how to make airforms.
Here is a video I made of the home i visited and I have a link in the description to the website with the book.
