 If you're going to put in a basement, how do you waterproof the rubble stone foundation?   Or is a basement out of the question in that case?  We've got a lot of stone, folks.

By the way, the old barn thing sounds a little like a precursor or "variation" on Superior Wall. Think about it and see if you agree.  After all, Sup W sits on a simple #57 stone foundation, by their spec.  No other footing required.

 Are you saying use refractory cement/concrete? Is there a particular reason why stainless steel is required rather than regular rebar or similar?  Web search shows it at about $3 per Lb.  Superior Wall, noted for its waterproof guarantee, uses minimum 5000 psi concrete. They say it usually works out over 6000. Does that qualify as refractory, or is there something special about refractory (normally designed for high temperatures I thought) in regard to waterproofing?

Seems to be light on engineering and approvals. When faced with an engineered product that is outside of the codebook prescriptions I look for an ESR, engineering services report number. I can then go look up the report and read it to see if the product will work for the intended purpose. Neither these nor sonotubes will provide the needed lateral bracing to support a building. They are intended to be used for support of lightweight elements like decks that are attached to the main braced structure.

 Dumb video. Especially the wobbling tower at the end. However, I didn't see them representing it as being for anything other than decks or similar minor stuff.

Looks like a simple alternative to mixing! I think Id limit the use to smaller structures and not mi casa!
