Building in Arizona



  • @Tyler-nlsn

    Hi Tyler,

    Thank you so much for reaching out.

    It has been our long-time interest...to live more simply and closer to the earth. And to live in a home that is more green/sustainable.

    We are wondering how the Arizona codes/permits are as a relates to aircrete. I have not been able to find anyone in the Sedona/Cottonwood /Rimrock area who is building with air Crete.

    We have thought about doing a workshop to build a tiny house. We are exploring possibilities…

    Take care and again I so appreciate you reaching out and your offer to come and support us. I would enjoy staying in touch as this unfolds,

    In gratitude 🙏🏽

    Hi Kayse, this is Eternity, it’s great to meet you, and to hear you are looking to build in Sedona!! Sedona is by far my favorite place in the West, as I have visited many times, and would love to relocate there!

    I am an Interior Designer, artist/photographer and empathic lightworker, looking to build an aircrete dome home community on ley line land. I am currently looking into taking online aircrete classes, but also prefer hands on. I’m highly interested in creative collaboration and would love to talk to you more about the possibilities of helping each other build in beautiful Sedona area.

    Light and Love!!!

    Hi Eternity,

    Thank you so much for responding to my aircrete request. I will send you a text and we can begin connecting.

    In gratitude for this forum so that we can all share information, learn and connect.

    Hello Kayse,

    I am planning a trip out to Sedona next week, we would love to connect with you! Wondering if you are available to meet up and show the land you want to build on?

    Exciting times are happening!!

    Light and Love,
    Eternity



  • @Eternity

    Hi,

    Sounds fun 🌟

    Yes, I would have enjoyed showing you the land and sharing it with you. However we will not be in town.

    Have a fabulous time exploring in the area

    Happy day🌸
    Kayse



  • Kayse,
    I live in Prescott. I just ordered the mixer from Domegaia and plan to build the foam machine to practice making 12x12x6 blocks. The goal is to present some samples to an engineer to begin bridging the legalities of building with aircrete in Yavapai County.
    I am looking for some off grid land every day, and plan to build a couple of 20' domes.
    Let me know what's up!

    In gratitude for your contribution to increase Arizona’s awareness about Aircrete.

  • I have been in a different forum seeking out workshops, and this sounds like a great potential place for either hosting one or even just recruiting willing hands! I am an AZ native (graduated HS in Mesa), lived in Flag while I earned a Masters, and now live in KC. All my immediate family’s still out there, however, and I have friends who I visit regularly in Sedona whenever I visit family. Point is, I’m sure I’m not along in hoping you can open-book your search/research process and journey and serve as a leader via your experience in both navigating AZ’s tricky code system & embarking on this journey. I know Susan mentioned some no-code land, but some of our professions and interests don’t allow for us to live quite as isolated (yet). If you choose to blog about it elsewhere, please let us know—I’d love to follow your story!



  • @treblerebel I believe I will be indeed building (when I find property) in Yavapai county in Arizona. I am about to connect with a concrete engineer and get his help in running this thru the county. I have built the foam generator and forms and have already begun making 12x12x6 blocks. When I get some solid feed back regarding county info I will post the results. I am also looking around at the interest in this area and seeing if a joint effort for hosting a Domegaia workshop could happen in the area. Thanks, Greg



  • Hi Greg, I am inspired and encouraged to read your latest email. We have land in the Rimrock area with a gorgeous long distant red rock view. There is still land for sale in that area and it seems to be less expensive. We have started to meet the neighbors and it seems like a really sweet and supportive community.

    Our dear friend Maggie has bought land right next to us and we would enjoy meeting you and exploring possibilities. We will be on the land July 18 through about the 25th. Thank you sooo much for opening up this new frontier and navigating the codes and permits. Feel free to call or text - Cheers, Kayse 501-767-8642



  • @sofarsoggood

    Hi Greg,

    I thought we had connected before and just now reading your previous post. And also remembering that you are rooted in Prescott. Would enjoy connecting when I’m in Arizona if that timing works for you. Cheers - Kayse

  • @kayse would be interested in helping/learning, if you get a project going. I could winter over in AZ to escape the Minnesota winter.
