Might inflatable concrete buildings one day be a true game changer on the path to self-sufficiency?

I saw a documentary on this several years ago. So weird, but very cool! I'm surprised it hasn't taken off by now.

Interesting concept. I wonder if I can get one in a dome shape?

If you look at their website, they have two sizes of shelter but you can also buy it by the roll. Therefore, you could very well design your own building and drape it over a framework, just add water and wait for it to set.

Yes, I noticed that. In fact, I spent quite a while checking out the pictures of ditches and wondering ... No, I haven't written for more information. Yet.
