Damn, they had to use a jeep to unfold the tent. Bagged concrete has a short shelf live in humid areas. I wonder how they keep the concrete from getting hard in storage?

I saw those in a video a while ago. They are cool. For SHTF, inflate, cover with sod, disappear.

How much do they cost?
Their website says the structure will last for ten years.

A million little desiccant bags. Sounds like they are using a pretty thin mix if it takes 5 hours to set so it may not activate that easy.

Like EMD said, bury the thing and nobody would know it was there!

One site said they cost about $2,100 bucks, not bad for a solid shelter that can fit in the back of a small PU Truck before its built, about 172 square feet of floor space and 500 lbs without water, after, its not gonna blow away!

Coolest part is the only tools needed are a leafblower, a garden hose and a pi truck, no trowels, no saws, hammers or fasteners needed. You couldnt haul all the fasteners and tools in a small PU truck and carry the wood needed to build a stick structure half this size in three F250's.

That price seems fair. Just wish it lasted longer than ten years.

That's pretty fascinating. I wonder how big you could create something with that.

I bet the skys the limit as long as you can somehow create enough of a seal to inflate it. Not so much air pressure needed as one might think, its just a ginat bouncy castle! Air is the perfect support until the strength of the solid crete can kick in. This is a no brainer like Ive never seen before, why dont we do this everywhere? I want a dome of my own and this looks like the way to do it!

As far as the 10 year life, its nearly dome-like and support wize, you cant get much stronger. Even Crete breaks down when bombarded by moisture. I bet that could be extended much longer with some kind of a waterproof membrane over it!
