Like everyone stated, this is a wood alternative and one that will soon be used in a widespread manner.

The labor is higher because you do not cut and affix a metal stud like a wood stud. The metal needs different tools But esentially its the same principal.

Studs in metal without the rock attached look and feel like a vertical set of spigetti noodles, but once the rock is attached, this wall is super strong.
