Thanks, I'll do some additional research, with your experience in the tropics, how thick do you make the walls?

RE: British Columbia Canada Cold Weather Builds - Foundations, Insulation and Wall Thicknesses
@Talyn71 I've watched several of your videos and appreciate the information I've been able to learn. Based on what you know, how well do you think the Aircrete will hold up to a hard Idaho winter (or would you be able to speculate on that)?
I'm specifically interested in how well it will insulate the home.
RE: I am also interested to know aircretes stability in cold and damp climates, (Ireland).
I am also interested in knowing the answer to this question. I live in Idaho and I would like to build an Aircrete Dome home. Based on my reading it sounds like the material will likely hold up well. However, I would like to get confirmation of that from someone who has more experience with it (not just reading data sheets).
Additionally I read that there may be concerns on the need for additional insulating due to the colder temperatures that are experienced here over the winters (especially hard winters like the recent one).
Yes I read the R-Value section of the FAQs, but I have not seen any of these homes anywhere in this style of climate so I can't compare what I read to a real world example.
