Building designing thin shell monolithic concrete homes since 1983 including dome homes and above ground portable 8 ton safe room domes.

Exterior insulation

Once roofing foam has encapsulated the exterior of this home the interior will remain fixed at around 78 degrees F. By having a fixed temperature reduces the need for systems that must overcome large temperature differentials throughout the year, some structures are heated with air dryers. The downside to a tight home is humidity. Technology today takes that built up humidity and turns it into drinking water.

Solar water heater CHEAP

Manufacturers would have you believe that you need thousands of dollars to install a solar water heating system. In fact by placing a black metal container in a sunlit location placed at the input to conventional water heater will do the same reduction in power bill by never or rarely having the thermostat of the water heater kick in since the water already in the tank will be above 120 degrees. Pre heat water reduces the amount the electric / gas heater has to bring up to temp.

Hybrid energy system

Now that your home is super insulated and the hot water system has reduced the need for that by 30%. Insulation on the exterior reduces the amount of energy required to heat and cool by 50%. Now all that is required is to tweak a system using wind, solar, water to provide energy that can be stored in a bank of batteries.

Composting Toilets

Florida Biscayne Bay has thousands upon thousands of dead fish. Pollution and sewage runoff have depleted the O2 levels creating super high toxic algae growth.

Society for years has talked about alternative energy systems Never hear much spoken about alternative human fecal disposal? Sun-Mar composting toilets is one of the industry leaders in composting, a trend that should be spoken more about if we are to save this planet.

Simple solutions to BIG problems Green Revolution

Once each dwelling provides its own energy and sewage the need for large polluting power plants and environmentally damaging sewage plants will no longer be needed. Once older homes are insulated on the exterior to easily get them off the grid creates an industry.

Bunker homes require no homeowners insurance a big plus with the continued uptick in storms.

The future is today saving planet Earth one home at a time, North Port, Florida. Where will you go when the wind blows?

Indestructible concrete construction

1983 Loxahatchee Florida two story monolithic concrete home approximately 1,600 sq ft. This home was torn down by the new owners. First attempt was to use a Cat excavator, it bounced off. Next a five ton wrecking ball was used, it bounced off.

A curved wall is three times stronger that a flat wall. This home used #3 bar every six inches each way then encapsulated with six inches of 5000 psi gunite. The only method to bring this home down was to use carbide tipped concrete cut saws with men in fire retardant gear. This is why DRD Enterprises Inc of Davie can offer bunker homes with no homeowners insurance.
