One of the challenges of ferrocement is the engineering. I say this because it’s what I see when doing research. I’ve found diagrams and step by step structural photos that have helped immensely in giving me ideas of what has been done in the past and works, but have not yet run into anything absolutely definitive that can be used to “guide my ship”. Plus I’m hearing of others who have had difficulty in getting their plans approved for building.
I spent some months working in our local Public Works department. I don’t know if it will be of benefit when it comes time for getting plan approval. I know I must have all my ducks in a row and have all the answers when the time comes.
