Interest in building with Aircrete has never been greater than it is right now following the very first Australian  Council Building Approval  for a 90m2  Aircrete  Dome home on the Sunshine Coast.

You can build a “shed” size in your back yard (that doesn’t require council approval), a tiny house, off-grid, small or large home, the choice is yours and the options are endless.

Our team has learned from the originators of this construction method, Domegaia, and we commenced running Aircrete Dome Workshops in June 2020 from our home base in SE QLD. Since then, we have taught hundreds of people the skills required to start them off on their own dome building adventure. The Aussie dome community is constantly growing with dozens of new builds underway and at various stages of completion.

So, if you like the idea of starting off debt free, with more time for yourself and your family. If you are up for learning the skills required to build your own home with your friends, family, or community, with a construction method that won’t break your back or your bank account……and is FUN then……….

What is Aircrete?

Aircrete is a lightweight non-toxic material that is made simply from cement, water, and foam. The foam is produced by mixing a foaming agent with water and passing the solution through a foam generator using an air compressor. The millions of added foam bubbles are what gives Aircrete it’s superior insulation properties and makes for a lightweight product that is easy to build with, unlike it’s concrete counterpart. Even once fully set, Aircrete can still be cut, carved, sawn and rasped, rendering it the perfect material to create a smooth dome shape. The simple concrete and foam mix makes a most economical product for construction at a cost of around 70c  per block/brick. It hardens overnight and is ready to be used for building within days but continues to harden over time. Acoustic insulation is yet another beneficial property of Aircrete, having been used for decades between floors in high-rise buildings to minimise noise.
