Default Re: ECO Blocks

ECO blocks are what I built the house from. They are expanded polystyrene with a cement core. They are assembled on site and stacked like lego's and your pump concrete into them.

I can post pictures if you like. I have about $4500 of Rebar in the wall, along with 1 broken finger due to a storm and lots of blood from hanging the rebar in the walls. Though, I would do it again as they are awesome - my average bill year round is $180/month for electricity in Arizona.

So in short, I dont think they would do well for the oven. Maybe the oven base if you wanted a solid concrete base.

Our electricity bill is about $300 per quarter. (at around 19c per kwh)

Thanks Dave.

I'm keen on using them I just have to find supplier and hopefully they don't come with a big price tag.
After reading your post I did a search to find out more and came across this
