Build your own dome home

Build your own dome home

The full time superadobe builder, will be running a series of workshops next month near Castlemaine.

"When used to build a dome home or space, they become some of the strongest buildings you can build, resistant to flood, hurricane, tornado, cyclone, lightning, fire or explosions and bullets," he said.

"[But superadobe] can be used for entire family homes, small annex bedrooms or studio spaces, sheds, retaining walls, bench seating, straw bale home foundations, sculpture, water tanks, ponds, aquaponic tanks almost anything you can cheap jerseys imagine.

"It is incredibly versatile."

Adobe refers to any form made from earth like mud brick and rammed earth and superadobe are all forms built with earth.

"It is 'super' because it is an advanced earth form, not following standard shapes and lines traditionally used in other adobe forms," Annable said.

It is one of the oldest building materials on the planet, and adobe buildings are found throughout the South America, Spain, the Middle East, West Asia, southwestern North America and the United Kingdom.

"I love its simplicity and strength. it is also incredibly cheap," Annable said.

The courses will be held near Castlemaine from October 9 through 23. They cost $350 per week or both weeks for $600. The following month, Annable will run another couple of workshops from November 14 to 28 near Bacchus Marsh.
