  1. We are sold on the benefits of magnesium oxide concrete. Do you have a current contact for Michael Collins? He refers to conmesh, and we have not been able to locate that in the US. For the concrete, we want to spray it on. Do we need to experiment to come up with the right mix of ingredients, or is there a tried a true formula? Having difficulty finding a company that will sell mag oxide based concrete to DIYers. Thank you.

  2. Kelly,

    This seems like a really good idea (assuming it works, of course). I would think that this method could be used to create a moderately weather-proof environment where-in an owner-builder can complete the interior. Scale would likely be the biggest problem, as far as I can see. Maybe a geodesic dome frame could be used to get the scale up to something reasonably habitable (by western conventions, I mean ;-).
