My husband is from Argentina, where nearly all the really nice homes are built out of cinder blocks with stone facades... they are fast to build, economic, insulated, and they look great!!! We want to build our own cinder block house in N.Tx but can not find any cost comparisons, much less any dealers! It is frustrating to find that all of the houses on the market today are built out of tooth picks! To me, it is like the story of the three little pigs... the twig house didn't survive the brick house! I REFUSE to WASTE my hard earned money on a stick or stray house! It's brick (cinder block) or nothing for me!!! But WHO in N. TX sells it???
