We are offering a FREE 8 week course on how to build an Air-Crete Building.  We are looking for volunteers who are willing to meet weekly.  Participates will learn how to make and use Air-Crete. Course starts on Saturday June 24, 2017 and will continue for 8 weeks on Saturdays 1 – 6 pm in Lincoln City, Oregon




Passive Solar Year Around Greenhouse






What is Air-Crete?

Air-Crete is called cellular concrete, foam concrete, light weight concrete, aerated concrete etc.

It is a lightweight material that contains stable air cells uniformly distributed throughout the mixture. It is a concrete which utilizes a stable air cell rather than traditional aggregate.

Air-Crete is an eco-friendly building material, made from natural raw materials such as: sand (or fly-ash), cement, lime, gypsum, aluminum powder and water. This mix creates an aerated concrete providing insulation, structure and fire protection in one lightweight product.


Crete is easy and inexpensive to make yourself with a small Air Crete machine called the little dragon.

It is waterproof, fireproof, and insect proof. It offers good thermal and acoustic insulation. It will not rot, warp, or corrode. Unlike concrete which is hard, heavy, cold and difficult to work with, Air-Crete is easy to work with. It dries overnight and can be cut, carved, drilled and shaped with wood-working tools. It accepts nails and screws and is easily repaired. It had good compression strength to make excellent foundations, sub-floors, building blocks, poured walls, domes or whatever. It can be molded or formed into practically any shape. Air-Crete can cut cost of conventional methods of construction by a factor of 10.

I'm not in the area, but I would love to buy a DVD of this if you have a way to make one.  Would really like to see this.

If you send us a PM with your email, we will reply with a confirmation.  

Air-Crete put air bubbles into concrete and is a new form of building.  We are still experimenting with the bestr way to build the molds, blocks and test it for the Oregon rainy weather.   We are not ready to produce a DVD.
