“We did a lot of research on various green building systems but settled on Faswall. Not only did it seem like the “greenest” technology, but the ease of building compared to other systems seemed like a good choice for an owner/builder. What we didn’t expect, but were totally delighted with, was how knowledgable and helpful the people at Faswall were. We couldn’t have done it without you!”

Why Faswall® is Perfect for DIY Home Construction
Faswall® blocks are dry stacked -- no mortar needed!
Faswall® is an outstanding choice for DIY home construction. In fact, more than 35 percent of our builders are do-it-yourselfers.
Faswall® is excellent for DIY home construction for the following reasons:
Incredibly Simple Installation for DIY Home Construction
The DIY home construction system is so uncomplicated that supervised unskilled labor can be used for installation.
As we often say, if you can build with Legos®, you can build with Faswall®!

Can Be Built Over Time
The Faswall® material withstands freeze/thaw cycles without degradation. This means that homeowners can build year round in very cold weather conditions without fear of the Faswall® forms losing their integrity.
Builder or DIY Home Construction?
Lightweight & Easy to Work With
Faswall® weighs much less than concrete masonry unit (CMU) blocks and is therefore much easier to work with. Each block is just 28 pounds.
You don’t break your back building with Faswall® on your DIY home construction project!
Cuts Like a Wood Product & You Can Fasten To it Anywhere
You can nail and screw directly into Faswall®. You can also easily cut Faswall® blocks with carpenter’s tools. No installation or searching for furring strips.
Electrical wiring can be cut into the walls. This makes a myriad of operations quicker and simpler, e.g. fastening windows directly to the Faswall® material, fastening cabinets directly to the interior wall, electrical wiring, etc.
Easy, Direct Surfacing
You can surface finish Faswall® directly on both sides. It makes an excellent substrate for plasters and stuccos — it keys-in on the porous surfaces.
Meets or Exceeds Codes Everywhere
Faswall® meets or exceeds building and energy codes in all states to reduce the hassle on your your DIY home construction project.
