Hey Guy Gerald and Sandii Lewis
Dome Cowra NSW Australia
We were wondering if you planned to hold a workshop in Hawaii in 2020 as Sandii and I are desperate to attend. We would only prefer the Hawaii workshop thanks as we are able to easily get there without too much hastle and we would be interested in meeting all the DomeGaia staff who have help us over the past couple of years and personally pass on our thanks, so if there is one in the wind for Hawaii next year please give us as much notice as possible,

Sorry for not answering sooner but have had some personal things to attend to and My Wife just had double knee replacement so we have slowly progressed over the past few months. The Dome is almost closed in at the top, we have made and installed two circular windows and have began to render the outside, We were thinking of not rendering the external structure but in retrospect we decided to go ahead as the render softens the look of the surface and also adds another hardened layer making the structure stronger and more weather proof. We will undercoat it with Dulux texture primer then apply Dulux medium texture to that. Of course the texture paint adds protection, water proofing and a great look as it can be tinted. All these layers of render and paint take time and of course you must wait approx 8 weeks before you can apply the texture coats to new render. This allows us to work on other areas such as bathrooms, toilets plumbing electrical etc all these need to be checked into the walls of the Dome so cut in, install then patch. We have a facebook page detailing our adventures with the Dome building here in Cowra it can be accessed via Moonah and Choc over 50 hippies. request access as usual
We are building a 21 Foot Dome and up to now we have used approx 3 pallets of cement , in Australia that equates to 225 x 20kg bags, now this will get you only to lockup with no internal walls, if your unsure just google dome calculator and look at a site which will do the calculations for you. there you can have an idea of your s
urface area and calculate the materials from there.
Building large Dome in Cowra NSW Australia, lately been buffeded by strong winds, 3/4 finished Dome acts like a sail, the inside being concaved takes on great forces from strong winds and flexes in and out causing minor cracks inside surface of Dome, although they are only small in width they extend all the way up the inside of the Dome, so to counter this we have meshed and rendered the inside as well and seems to have fixed this problem. This also makes the Dome very strong and finishes off the inside nicely ready to paint. We have discovered that it is better to mesh every two rows of bricks, our bricks being 300mm x 300mm thats every 650mm odd. Meshing inside and out now.
3/4 built. Had some challenges with extreme heat.
But going great guns now.
