Learn how to build your own

Aircrete Dome

At a time when more people are homeless than ever before, and the dream of owning a home has long become but a pipe dream for the majority of people, Aircrete domes are the shining light at the end of an Aircrete tunnel! This simple construction method uses mostly water, foam and cement. This somewhat simplistic recipe, however, provides us with an end product that is not only beautiful, but won’t burn, is vermin proof, waterproof, cyclone resistant, fully insulated, AND you can “do it yourself”. Not only that but it is as cheap as chips to build.
Since learning the techniques overseas several years ago, Kathy and the team at Aircrete Domes Australia have been sharing the skills with hundreds of inspired and up and coming “Domies” at their learning centre in SE QLD.
Their teachings have culminated in one of their students achieving the first ever Council approved, 90m2 Aircrete dome home in SE QLD, which is now fully complete.
“Our fervent desire is to see this method become more mainstream and known to Engineers, Certifiers and Councils alike, and to provide a real and affordable “DIY” opportunity that empowers people to build their own affordable dream home”.

Our amazing 2 day introductory workshop is now available online with video tutorials of everything that you would learn if you attended our live training in person. It includes a full manual and lifetime access to our training videos to view and review, at your leisure.

Your Instructors

Kathy is one of the founders of Aircrete Domes Australia. She has a passion for creating conscious community and learning to live purposefully and harmoniously in the current world landscape. With a belief that, as clean food, water and air are the inherent right of every person on the planet, having a roof over one’s head is not just desirable, but equally a given right for all beings. As a mother, grandmother, chef and Karaoke Queen, she demonstrates the fact that no previous building experience is necessary to enable anyone to build with Aircrete. In an industry that has been traditionally and predominantly, male oriented, it’s refreshing to know that women are equally capable, and able, to dive into this construction method which is incredibly light-weight compared to other alternative building methods.

Peter is also one of the founders of ADA and a qualified electrician by trade. He is ultimately very handy with all tools and has easily turned his skills towards Aircrete dome building and teaching.

Peter and Kathy will take you through every step of your online journey.

This is such a forgivable building process. Even if you make mistakes, you can correct these errors later on.
