3 gallons of Dresses foam agent
Can you pleas describe or provide a link to this "Dresses foam agent"? I can't find it.
Your plans seem very exciting to me. I will be following your methods. Please post as much as you can. I too hope to inspire others in community as I proceed with aircrete structures. Your method seems very applicable to building walls.
I am thinking of a pole barn type structure with your pet bottle bricks as walls between post. Should be a stronger wall spanning say 8'. Alternatively forming up the space and pouring aircrete into it with some type of reinforcing.
Metal and concrete seems to always have issues eventually. I will be painting all metal embedded into concrete like ferocement water tanks I am going to build. I know there are products to treat cured concrete so new concrete will "stick".
@zander Zander thanks for the info. This will have significant effect on my bottom line and let me build more. I greatly appreciate those of you who are posting actual experience. I hope to be joining you soon with detailed documentation of my build experience.
We walk on our domes frequently.
Interested in the block thickness. You walk often on 3.5 thick blocks. I presume at the density DomeGaia publishes i. e. 19lbs cubic foot. My dome will be 21foot dia internal and I was thinking I needed 5" block thickness. If I can go 3.5-4 that would certainly help out in material cost. Has anyone figured out the ratio of needed block thickness to dome diameter?
Zander, this is why I am a member of this forum. Bright creative inventive people come up with great ideas. I have wondered if the amount of Portland which did not get mixed up in the bottom of my drum had a major effect on my first bath failing. It was maybe 2-3 cups of Portland not mixed. I think that may well have been enough to throw the pour off.
I will be making the famous Zander whisk before mixing my next batch.
Thanks for the clever idea.
