    • I’ve never seen anyone combine ferrocement with traditional architecture in this way. He really is a superb architect.

      • Don’t cut yourself so short. I believe you are quite brilliant yourself. I do appreciate how he used the rebar because THIS is exactly how I plan to create the false illusion of my Hobbit home being under the large hill side. It was great to see how he used it to create such a beautiful home in my opinion.

        • Thanks. As you can see, you can create almost any curved surface imaginable with rebar, mesh and plaster.
