  1. 1

    Great show about building, I was looking into a foam style building in Nicaragua called EmmaDue or M2 and it looked good but I could not get any established contractors to try anything new. I would like to see notes or contacts on new building companies like the light steel buildings from Canada and the comprised wood in San Jose. Keep it up great show.
