The EcoShell is a simple, low-cost concrete dome. It is ideal for low cost housing around the world as a replacement for the junk that is presently in place. It can be built primarily by hand and requires minimum costs and equipment.
The EcoShell can be many sizes. A 10-foot diameter EcoShell I is ideal for a small storage building. A 20-foot diameter EcoShell I can be used for low cost housing in developing countries.
How to build an EcoShell I is an easy to understand, step-by-step instruction manual. Over 60 detailed instructions show each step of the EcoShell I building process. David South created this book so builders who are not fluent in English could follow the simple, detailed illustrations.

Note: The EcoShell is an uninsulated structure and not a replacement for the insulated Monolithic Dome.
