Re: [greenyes] Fwd: styrofoam as a building material?


Hello,

Years ago there was a company in New Orleans, Louisiana sort of doing the
reverse of ICFs.
There were using a Styrofoam core with wire lath and spraying gunnite over
the foam core with wire lath to hold the gunnite on the foam.
I'm not sure how well it worked or any details on structural issues.

Here is the URL for that company:

A house Fire should also be a consideration.
See http://www.msha.gov/S&HINFO/TECHRPT/MINEWSTE/POLYBLOK.pdf for some
ideas.

Regards,
Debra
