In reply to CONCRETE BLOCK HOUSE by SHERRY OLIVER on January 21st, 2000 12:03 PM [Go to top of thread]

SHERRY,

IN CALIFORNIA, FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT PIONEERED HIS "TEXTILE BLOCK" CONCRETE-BLOCK HOUSES. I GUESS IF YOU READ A LITTLE ABOUT HIS 'STYLE', YOU MAY FIND MORE MODERN REFERENCES TO 'BUILDING WITH BLOCK'. YOU ARE CORRECT ABOUT THIS TYPE OF HOME KEEPING COOL BUT DON'T BE MISLED INTO THINKING THAT IT'S THE ONLY TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION TO GET YOU THE DESIRED RESULTS. THIS IS WHERE A GOOD ARCHITECT WHO IS SCHOOLED IN THE AREA OF 'EFFICIENT HOMES' IS WELL WORTH THE $$$.

I KNOW A BUILDER IN MASSACHUSETTS THAT BUILDS CONCRETE HOMES. IF YOU LIVE IN THAT AREA AND/OR ARE SET ON THIS TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION, I CAN PUT YOU IN TOUCH W/HIM. MY BEST TO YA AND HOPE THIS HELPS.

JAY J

HECK, IF YOU CAN'T BEAT 'EM, JOIN THEM ...
