built our living quarters into a 200-year-old barn, occupying 1/3
of the structure with air krete forming a barrier between the heated
quarters and the remainder of the old barn.
fire destroyed virtually the entire living quarters within the barn—6x8
timbers were destroyed--the Fire Marshal estimated temperatures
near the fire’s point of origin to be 1700 degrees.
the fire was confined to the living quarters. The air krete did
not burn, it
did not melt or crumble, it just sat there, making an excellent
firewall. There is no doubt in my mind that air krete
saved the building."
