We plan on using aircrete and EPIC to lower our costs of construction. (Please see post 8 reasons for aircrete/EPIC) Our domes will be Monolithic meaning: consisting of one piece; solid or unbroken. EPIC will give the structure a consistent strength. We will build in summer 2021. Our domes will be houseboats floating on the water.

Low Cost, Eco-Friendly Aircrete Homes | Hajjar Gibran | TEDxSedona

The high cost and vulnerability to the forces of nature make conventional stick houses foolish. The 3 little pigs taught us that in kindergarten. How about we build solid Aircrete brick homes that aren’t damaged by water or high winds? A fabric reinforced AirCrete dome home is much more durable yet costs only a small fraction of conventional housing. The son of an inventor, Hajjar Gibran’s youth passed building tree houses, hot rods and tiny homes, and he was already a skilled designer & builder by the time he finished the engineering program at SDSU. He built his first passive solar home in Nova Scotia, winning several awards from the Nova Scotia Design Council. While building The Gibran Center in Thailand, Hajjar developed an innovative way of building beautiful low cost AirCrete domes that has gained international recognition. Hajjar founded Domegaia in 2014 to answer the global demand for his innovative low cost housing designs.
