I will be following this post closely. I have purchased the Drexel but not tested it yet. I will post when life let's me get it done. Hoping several others will post experiences as well.

RE: Suspending Triangular Aircrete Panels from Geodesic Dome.
I have been considering this idea ever since I learned of Aircrete. I purchased Geodesic Dome plans from Paul Robinson several years ago and was thinking. Because the Geo dome is very strong, and Aircrete is very light why not stretch chicken wire/cloth on the inside of the panels. Fill them with aircrete. Finish the outside/inside with cloth stucco as normal Domegaia domes.
You would need to leave channels for your screws but that should be easy with well placed straws or just drill out the channels before you set all the screws. This would be a very strong very insulated building. I decide that an Aircrete dome would be cheaper because I don't need all the limber and screws but still a very cool construction idea.
If anyone uses my idea thats great just document and post. WE all are learning.

RE: Need help in USA, Georgia.
I am hoping to get started this spring/summer. Logistics is still an issue due to no infrastructure. I will build a simple rain water collection system like I live on at home. Then I just need to get my generator in top shape. Then I can start making blocks.
If anyone is close enough to volunteer with primitive camping and such let me know. I am working with very limited resources and could only provide camping and experience.
Also a couple of people have stated that they were starting a project in Georgia. Any updates on that?
