    Beschreibung

    Hello Everyone. My name is Milad. I am a 46 year old American man living on my little farm 5 km from the East coast on the island of Dominica. It is off the grid agriculture land.

    I am building ferrocement domes. There are three domes under construction at different levels of completion. These are super strong structures that have survived hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, and forest fires.

    I learned about domes for the first time about ten years ago while researching hurricane proof homes. Domes are incredibly strong and much LESS expensive to build than conventional homes.

    I would be happy to share my knowledge and experience of building domes. Including design, material calculations, construction techniques, electric and plumbing, waterproofing, etc.

    The long term goal of the project is to have an alternative healing health retreat.

    I can teach you how to make a super strong home with only a few tools that will last a lifetime.

    I am a former pharmacist who has realized that nutrition rather than drugs is how the body heals. I am very knowledgeable about health and nutrition. This is a good place to get healthy and fit.

    I would like some help with building and finishing the domes. I would prefer good energy and attitudes. Building experience is not necessary.

    Mixing cement is done by machine not by hand. Domes are made 1 bucket at a time and volunteers are very much appreciated. The work is physical, but not extreme and the pace is easy.

    If you want to learn how to make a ferrocement dome of your own this project is for you.

    If you are a mature and responsible person who would like to have some relaxing and peaceful time in nature and learn this technique. This project is for you.

  • Unterkunft

    Unterkunft

    Stay in a dome! Perfect for a single person or a couple. Private, comfortable, and secure. Private bathroom.

    The main cottage has a kitchen with stove, oven, and a sink. There is a bathroom with a hot shower and a loft with a queen size mattress.

    Tents available after that. Another dome for volunteers in the works now.

    The water is from a spring and there is running water to all the structures. Electricity is produced with solar panels.

    I provide all meals. Please understand that cleaning up after meals is not part of the volunteer time.

    Smoking outside is no problem.

    Please bring a sleeping bag or blanket , your pillow and towel.

    As you look around on the farm you will be surrounded by nature. There is not another home in view. There are neighbors but we can not see each other. We are surrounded by streams and rivers. The castle bruce beach and the emerald pool are only minutes away.

    I generally go to town once a week or less, but I would be able to pick you up. Dominica is a very safe place to explore. Hitchhiking and buses make it easy to get around.

    Dominica is easy to reach by ferry boat from Guadeloupe, Martinique, or St. Lucia.
    Please feel free to ask any questions.
