DomeGaia: Building Dome Homes with AirCrete

What if there was a low-cost way to build an eco-friendly, fire-proof, water-proof and insect-proof home? That you could do all yourself with readily-available materials like water, concrete and detergent? Meet DomeGaia! A company committed to sharing their AirCrete-buildling technology with the world.

This innovative AirCrete is created using cement, water and foam (made by combining detergent with compressed air). It can be made at home using some of the tools sold by DomeGaia, and the material can be shaped into just about any design.

The home pictured below is Hajjar Gibran’s dome home which started his AirCrete journey. As you can see, you can make an amazing structure from AirCrete. What do you think?

The main living area looks out to a little fish pond.

All done! …Yeah, right! HaHa!

Here’s the pond view from the inside.

So here are the folks responsible for me building a house in Thailand! My sister Leslie maried Carl Haggar. I then became good friends with Carl’s brother Hajjar who with his wife Lumyai invited me to build on their mango farm. Carl gave me my first experience home building when I was 15 years old and Hajjar was my guidance in building my Thailand dome home. Love ya Brothers! Love ya Sister!

I love the orange exterior they used over the AirCrete.

Look how it glows at night time!

Goodnight dome home

Here is the view from the bedroom door.

And here you are looking into the bedroom

Now this is the coolest bathroom/shower I’ve ever seen!

Steve’s jungle bathroom!! The round stone work in the center is my shower.

There is a fridge and stove under the sink.

These stairs take you to a roof-top hammock area.

The glass skylights let in lots of natural light.

Here’s the platform to the hammock.

This grass roof is amazing and fits with the area.

The grass roof came out really well!

Could you live here?
