@JTT,
I was only a consultant. The plant made roofing shingles. They are light as wood and looks like wood only with better fire resistance.

@rainbowlaw,
I have seen one company use styrofoam forms and they poured concrete into them thus forming an insulated wall 4" thick. The styrofoam forms were left intact.

That's become very common. There are lots of companies making these forms. I've done one basement start to finish and helped finish up and pour another.

They do whole houses like this, pour the basement, then do the main floor.
