If you’re planning to build your green dream home, you should check out Faswall building blocks. These unique, organic wall forms are manufactured with mineralized, recycled wood chips, which makes them decay-resistant, and then bonded with 15 percent cement to form interlocking building blocks (no mortar needed).
Faswall blocks are resistant to fire, termites, and mold, and they can be cut with standard carpenter’s tools. Insulation inserts allow you to direct thermal mass into a living space, thereby reducing heating and cooling costs. The Faswall material has even caught on with gardeners as a simple panel material out of which to construct raised garden beds.
