Dome-Home Site Clearing, Preparation, and Maintenance

This page is about dome-home site clearing, preparation, and maintenance. It will provide a tutorial for how to prepare your site before building an earthbag or aircrete dome. It will also provide ongoing maintenance information. Once we’ve finished this tutorial and open sourced all the details for the 3-dome cluster as part of our crowdfunding campaign, we’ll do the same for the complete Earthbag Village (Pod 1) and Duplicable City Center®, and then the other 6 villages.

This guide is still under construction. When complete it will consist of the following sections:

NOTE: THIS PAGE IS NOT CONSIDERED BY US TO BE A COMPLETE AND USABLE TUTORIAL UNTIL

WHAT IS THIS

Dome Home Site Clearing, Preparation, and Maintenance, One Community Crowdfunding, site clearing iconBefore you can build a dome home, you need to prepare the site for construction. During your build you also need to maintain certain aspects of the site to keep it efficient and maximally safe. After your complete your build, there are additional site maintenance steps that will help you maintain and further develop the area around your new home.

This page will teach the specifics for all of these areas. The plan shared here is the same plan we’ll use for the complete open source sustainable Earthbag Construction Village.

If you’d like to see the level of detail we will be including on this page when it is completed, take a look at these pages:
