Featured Article: Wax Walls Keep The Temperature In Your Home Comfortable, Without Using Extra Energy

We're all about the new and sustainable, but this new product could save you some serious money during the winter and summer months as well. Today's featured article comes to us from Fast Company, all about new wax walls!

Our summers are hot and our winters are cold, we get the full effect of every season, which means we like our walls well insulated.

Imagine the impact that boards like these would have on your energy bill. Combined with some well placed windows you could be paying much less a month to heat and cool your house. 

These products are just beginning to enter the construction market, so we'll see how they do when put to the test of actual use. 

What do you think? Would you use these boards in place of traditional drywall?
