I just recently discovered your site, and I have a question for you. I am in Kuwait right now and cinder block is the material of choice over here for building homes. I see the homes being built very quickly and very well. I would like to look into this for building my house in Texas when we get back there. Can you reccomend a website or information on contruction costs and ideas for house designs that I can look at to get a better feel for what I am going to get into when I come back home. I would also like your opinon on the cost of cinder block as compaired to the traditional way of wood frame.
