Does anyone have any experience with building houses using a galvanized steel frame with polystyrene insulation (prefabricated)? I'm considering building my house using these materials and was wondering if anyone had any useful input.

I just poured the foundation to my new house yesterday using, what sounds like, that same system. (TF) My basement uses 10' tall walls stepped down to a walk out rear side to the basement. I was able to form the entire basement by myself in one week saving a ton in labor costs. I used a conveyor to get the concrete to the forms as I had an inaccesible back yard. The whole thing went without a hitch. 58 yards in 4 hours with only one person helping me. Don't take this litely. I have experience with Foam Forms. If you don't, utilize the companies support to help you. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you may have.
