If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I do not have it at the beginning.
~ Mahatma Ghandi
This will be how we build the structural supports for the Geodesic design (1 of 3 designs) of the floating tiny homes. We will use Basalt as our reinforcement. Continuous Basalt Fiber (CBF) exhibits 2.5 times the strength-to-weight ratio of alloyed steel and 1.5 times that of glass fiber. Most importantly, it does not corrode like metal and, unlike glass fiber, it is not subject to deterioration from acids. CBF is also inherently fire-resistant and can be used with various composites. Bamboo could also be suitable and more environmentally friendly. We can grow bamboo in Michigan. Mantra: "Use what we have and have what we use!"
Making a small model will be a fun project to do with the grandkids. A practice run be for the floating tiny home.
