a house out of cement blocks?
You may want to check out the following for some information: 1) www.concretenetwork.com -- lots of advertisements, but some good information too. 2) www.concretehomes.com -- the Portland Cement Association site 3) www.smartblock.com -- the site for Conform -- makers of insulated stay-in-place concrete forms. They'll have some "cons" listed as they talk about their system. Haven't used it myself, but saw a Bob Vila show using it some years ago, and have heard a number of good things about it.
