I am interested in building a round dome structure. I noticed that you do not cover dome building in your book. Would you please recommend a book that covers this kind of structure?
I also need info on building a dome in a humid climate such as Belize and it rains a lot too. What kind of water barrier would you suggest?
I have watched severeal of your videos about gardening andd have found them informative and interesting to watch.
Do you know of a YouTube video of building these earthbag homes?
Doni and Kaki have the best earthbag dome building book so far. Lots of places sell it.
Rainy climates: Domes evolved in deserts so if you want to build in rainy climates then I suggest building a roof on top to prevent water damage. Search our blog for keywords Roofed Domes.
