3)  Attributes of the
Geodesic
Earthworks   
Kit:


1.        Easily compacted for transport from factory to site;
2.        Is quickly and simply constructed;
3.        When coupled with the exterior Gunite/mesh application, becomes a structure of
immense strength (hurricane-proof tornado-resistant); easily supporting a three-
foot earth-load.
4.        Is virtually maintenance free;
5.        Is hugely energy-efficient!  Could this design become an energy exporter?
6.        Is far more private and secure than conventional structures;
7.        Is environmentally friendly; a sustainable building technology
8.        Is ideal for residential or commercial application (houses, offices, apartments).           
9.        Is aesthetically beautiful!! Customized window combinations, entry-ways,
retaining walls and landscaping… all maximizing the attributes of your building
site while simultaneously minimizing the building impact on the
environment makes
this home a work of art you live in!

The above graphic in concert with our initial calculations suggest that the Geodesic Earthworks
Kit can be built for a minimum of 30% less than a conventionally constructed home of the same
square footage and appointment!
