This is what it looked like inside the domes lately. Interested broadband users can watch a video here.

Thanks to Judy Zwolak of the Argus Leader newspaper in Sioux Falls for talking with us and writing up a nice article on the project. You can read it for yourself here.
We're very grateful to KTIV , the most popular T.V. channel in Sioux City, for covering Trinity Dome on their news broadcast. Melanie Peterson did a great job, and was a pleasure to talk with.

Permacrete or an elastomeric stucco -- both very low maintenance.
There are some other options at Monolithic we hope to evaluate in person this winter.

Here you can see the coated foam up close. You can also see where the sprayed foam overlaps and seals the original sheet foam used under the entire building.
In order to further protect the foam round the perimeter of the house, we used the new skid steer to backfill around the footing. This will protect the foam for now, and sets the stage for our final landscaping plans due next spring.
While we were at it, we prepared to repair the front sidewalk. It was pretty torn up during the sewer line installation. And since lots of college kids walk past each day, we thought it would be a good way to practice running the Monlithic Integrator cement mixer before the snow comes.
