Building at $10/sq. ft. is Possible — 2 Comments

    • Almost anything is possible. The main thing is to use low cost, sustainable, minimally processed materials in your area in a way that makes the most sense. There is no one best building method for everywhere. If you build on a slab, make sure the edges are thickened sufficiently to support the massive weight of the dome and prevent slippage (outward thrust). Also be sure it’s sufficiently above grade to prevent water leaking in during heavy rain and snow. And keep in mind domes evolved in deserts and are prone to water damage in rainy/snowy climates.
