Here’s a copy of our update for today here at ADAPTech. with some pics…
Today was a great success. We had 52 people from 8 different countries and 9 US states for our Eco-Sheel Dome class class/project today. After a wonderful lunch we had a short (for me) theory class about domes and dome construction. Then we moved to the technology field to apply the reinforcement rope and final layer to the second dome bath house.
After doing the other domes without help, Luke said today, "Now, this is the way to build domes."
Many hands make light work. I think we have pretty well mastered the necessary mixture and proceedure for the cheap, slick plastic stem wall form cover experiment.
We were blessed with the help of nearly our entire construction crew, as well as students from several countries, different states and the local commuity. Having 5 professional-level concrete masons/finishers on hand helped quite a bit. I am not nearly as tired as I was after the other domes I have helped build.
There is still time for many of you to make it here for tomorrow’s program.
We expect a bigger crowd tomorrow, and have a full day of activities. Breakfast is at 7 AM, supper at 6:00 PM followed by singing and music. Everyone should bring their musical instruments for after supper. We’ll have a full day in between.
Thanks to everyone who made today such a good one.
Time to sleep another round…Billy & Erika and crew.
