I mentioned we would be doing something cool this workshop. By day 4 our awesome team of novice dome builders managed to get not only 2 complete rows of blocks done, but also mesh those rows.

What does this mean?

It means once you’re proficient at block laying there’s no reason why you can’t get 4-5 rows done a day!!!

To me that’s a game changer

It used to take a few weeks to a month to complete a dome, now we’re looking at 1 week!

Stay tuned for the new look workshop where we complete YOUR dome in a week

The dome crew has arrived onsite for our mareeba workshop and what a stunning location!

The weather is wonderful up here on the tablelands, no humidity, warm days, cool nights, and a beautiful creek to swim in.

But the most exciting thing is we will be trialling something that will transform dome building.....

Stay tuned 😊👍🌴🇦🇺

Checking out a future dome workshop venue in the heart of the Daintree rainforest!

Super pumped for this as most homes in the wet tropics face mould and rot problems. Could Aircrete be the answer??

Time will tell and seeing as a small weekender dome will only cost the owners $3or $4k it’s worth the experiment

This will most probably happen next dry season (2023) so start planning that FNQ holiday you’ve always dreamt of 😃😃😃

Another dome about to be started. This time it’s under macadamia trees in the shadow of Mt Crookneck. Arrived on site 3 days before the workshop to start making blocks, and of course it’s pouring rain again. Trying to set up between downpours. Life’s fun😊

Housing affordability has never been so hard. Australia is seeing tent cities popping up, families living in cars, and the homeless population growing. More people than ever before are wanting to form communities to share the cost of land, but then comes the ridiculous cost of building and meeting council guidelines.

Aircrete is the game changer!

Why?

Cost. Most cost effective building method I’ve ever encountered

Will not rot, burn, degrade or be eaten by termites

Easy to learn and build

Super insulative

Perfect for off grid Bush living

If this sounds like what you’ve been looking for, consider hosting an aircrete building retreat on your land where you not only learn the techniques but end up with your own dome.
