Extreme Home Built with Old Containers

The Zdroj family lost their home in the Bastrop fire, but a new one seemingly from the ashes took its place. You may have noticed it on a special episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition recently. It was built by EFC Custom Homes and designed by Danze & Davis Architects, and in fact showcased some shipping container construction with help from Numen Development, the firm behind the Cordell Residence. There’s also recycled-content Cuerda Seca by Fireclay Tile on the entry exterior and other products from green home-improvement store TreeHouse.

Omni Block in an Insulated Concrete Block

I noticed in Dwell‘s Prefab edition that one prefab was partially built with an innovative concrete masonry unit (CMU) by Nevada-based Omni Block.  Omni Block is a structural CMU filled with Expanded Polystyrene inserts.  Walls with Omni Block can be finished or, in the case of the Simpatico project (see below), left exposed for a modern interior or exterior.  The manufacturer says the material is fire resistant, durable, and thermally efficient, and the blocks come in colors or with special aggregates.
