FoamDome Inverness Florida
Currently have a 30ft dome up and coated with 3 inches of 3lb closed cell urethane foam. Because of the concrete roughness I would like to top the foam with a UV protector stucco so as to cosmetically finalize the exterior.
Any special stucco procucts required and would any lathe be required

Just wondering how the walls are tied into the floor.

I know that in freezer applications, we actually spray the walls down below the floor then lay the floor on top of the insulation so that we don't have any vapor leaks where the walls and the floor meet.

Can't help with the stucco, sorry....

hey buck...
try these folks for advice on the dome..
www.monolithic.com,,(dave south,,author of the r value myth that so many folks make reference to)

these folk use the airform as the the rain barrier,,,putting it exterior,,shooting foam to the airform,,,hoop and vertical rebar then shot crete...from the interior side,,,

they used to do their applications like you are, so i bet they will be able to give you sound advice,,,

they got lots of custom tools to facilitate the process,,,
