Hi, my name is Chris Meador, I own and operate Permasystems - a company's whose mission is to design, build, and supply low-impact, perennial and functional structures - including those made out of ferrocement. I took Paul Sarnstrom’s FC/LFC course in 2014 and it changed my life! Currently Permasystems mostly builds 300 gallon LFC cisterns, primarily for rainwater harvesting storage. I have been doing this for 2 years. I have also built LFC planter box - type things.
My website is http://www.Permasystems.org
When I was young I watched my “godfather” build things with ferrocement: planters, retaining walls, covers, tables, and amazing art, like a mountain lion. This planted the seed of LFC in me.
I am interested in building the following out of FC/LFC:
- Hot tub
- Much larger water tanks and imitation rock tanks
- Retaining walls
- And much more!
I will post pictures and descriptions of my work in appropriate parts of this site. Here is a little more info:
