First of all, you have an awesome site! I would like to build a home that is not domed but arched - a rectangular base with an arched roof, and build it into the side of a home - think "hobbit home". The result should be a structure with at least 3 feet of soil on top of it, preferably 4 or 5. The first 1.5 feet will likely be soilcrete, so there will be support from that. I have land in the high plains desert and am wanting to do this for a number of reasons. This construction technology seems like it would be well suited for what I want to do, assuming I make compensations for the additional support I will need. Any comments??
