    Paddy,
    I know it is really cold here so I expect the same there, but any progress or updates?

    It looks like it has been a full year. Just wondering if the project is still going. I am planning a very similar house for this summer.

    we used Nudura blocks for the basement of our SIPs house and they went together great!
    the only thing we could have done different was double check the bracing for the walls - one section wasn't anchored correctly and that wall tipped out a bit, which made sheet rocking it interesting.

    It hasn't been stated yet but using a "Super Plasticizer" in the concrete mix it make it very liquid without increasing the "real" slump or water/cement ratio. The concrete needs to be poured within a specific time frame or the mix will return back to being very stiff. Also use air entraining agents whenever the concrete is exposed to freezing temperatures.
