  11. Hi, I have had a quote from ICF Scotland for everything I would need to build 142 sqm bungalow, he used to sell nudura, but was having some problems so now stocks integraspec don't know how good a system it is but has longevity behind it, been on the go for ages, so thinking the blocks must be good?
