I was originally looking at a 90 degree such as the image below.

Wanted to have round corners. I was going to use 5mm aluminium sheeting bent to radius and reinforced with aluminium bracing. So what would it cost to have that made up? More importantly, where are you in Australia?

Hi Sharon,

Just wondering how your experience with the geopanels was? I would love to hear what you though as we are considering them, mainly due the the light weight ease of use.

Thanks

There was an episode from the latest Grand Designs Australia season where an engineer designed and built a rammed earth home. He used the Italian made plastic geopanels and ended up ditching them. They left black marks on the walls and he had issues keeping the wall plumb from memory.
