  • Description

    Description

    Hello Everyone. My name is Miled. I am a 47 year old American man living on my little farm 5 km from the East coast on the island of Dominica.

    I am building ferrocement (cement on steel) domes. 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 am 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 an indestructible home with that will last a lifetime with only a few simple tools.

    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 volunteer here but don't want to work with cement, write me anyway. We can discuss other projects.

    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.

    The property is off the grid, mostly cleared agricultural land in the rain forest. Wild parrots overhead.

    There is one dome for the volunteers use. It has a bathroom with a flush toilet and a shower with hot water. There is a kitchen with a stove, oven, and sink. There is electricity.

    I offer a tent with a mattress for you to stay in.

    As you look around on the farm you will be surrounded by nature. 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.
