I got my kit and was hoping to be able to attend the Alabama workshop that kicks in tomorrow. Unfortunately my schedule is overloaded and I cannot afford much these days. Any tips on something simple I should start building to get familiar with Air Crete?
Dog house and Pump house are two practical ideas.
For something more creative, try pouring a blob or block and sculpting it. It is easier to sculpt after curing for 2-3 days. The longer it cures the more firm it becomes (up to 30 days).
Make several blocks to conduct performance tests such as thermal resistance and load bearing capability. Allow a full 30 day cure before conducting these tests.
Those are the ideas that come to mind right away.
