From today's Business Insider. Pictured is the GigaCrete Caribbean sales office / demo near STT USVI Humane Society -- as the structure looked before finishing touches were added.
FYI Check out GigaCrete Caribbean Facebook for some interesting news from Phillip Smith pertaining to jobs.
I was interested in this until I noticed nobody will give a $/sf cost, or maybe I missed it. Those on STT may want to read thru the FB stuff and see if there's anyone you know involved in the business . . . I've been thinking about the purportedly hurricane proof foam dome houses, but the cost I recall was far less than these seem to be.
Business Insider magazine article cited above did quote a price on the small 576sf GigaHouse kit (circa US$24,000). Of course, that's a stateside price.
Dome houses are fine, although they have limited appeal. Foam domes coated with GigaCrete plasters are extant.
Importantly, GigaCrete PlasterMax is a fire-rated plaster coating code-approved to replace gypsum board over EPS. Only plaster coating I can recall with that particular distinction. Both StuccoMax (3500psi) and PlasterMax (10,000psi) can be applied directly over EPS foam -- one coat, two pass.
Vicki and Greg Bischoff, founders of long-established Envirohaven, are big fans of GigaCrete, Their dome house in the desert used GigaCrete coatings. See gallery They're a wealth of knowledge and vast experience vis a vis all types of sustainable housing. They welcome calls.
