S. Georgia man building home out of Styrofoam

January 26, 2005

Calhoun County - Larry Parr is building his future Calhoun County home out of a Styrofoam like material called polysteel, then filling it with concrete. The material is supposedly able to withstand hurricanes, F-5 tornadoes, and even earthquakes.

Parr says, "We're building out of concrete and Styrofoam, because it's supposed to be very energy efficient and very strong."

It costs about ten percent more to build a home out of polysteel, but Parr says, in the long run, he'll save money because of it's energy efficiency.
