With this dome build I'm trying to take pictures of all the key steps involved and include basic explanations in a series of articles. If you're just interested in the process or are considering this option, these articles give a good overview of everything involved. But if you were going to build a Superadobe or Hyperadobe dome, you would want a lot more details. Superadobe is super flexible. With three people working 2-3 hours a day, averaging four days a week, we're making pretty good progress (compare pictures from three weeks ago). It's all done without heavy machinery or electricity. We're just ordinary people using ordinary hand tools. The point I'm getting at is that pretty much anyone, anywhere in the world can build themselves a shelter. With some extra design, you can build a home with any modern conveniences and as much square footage as you'd like. With more people working on it and/or working longer each day, you could build a dome this size from start to finish in one week. We would welcome more help, but we start shortly after sunup and only lay one course per day. The reason why is that we're in the middle of the hottest month of the year and we've been getting temperatures in the 90°s. All of us have suffered heat exhaustion to one degree or another, so that alone has slowed us down some.
