FasWall is a sustainable building system manufactured here in the Pacific Northwest. These blocks are made of 85% post consumer wood fiber and 15% cement. The simple organic materials make the buildings they are incorporated into simpler, more sustainable and affordable.
FasWall Blocks are stacked on a cement slab and then coated with an interior plaster and exterior stucco. The application is slightly different when building below grade and incorporates a waterproofing layer to keep the blocks protected.
Spraying the stucco to the FasWall block helps to turn a week’s worth of troweling into a day or two. A crew of 3 is best for this phase, one to mix and keep a constant supply of stucco available to sprayer, a sprayer who will scoop from the wheelbarrow and move along the wall applying the stucco and one person to follow behind troweling the wall smooth and even. A traditional 3 coat application is best for above grade work inside and out with a scratch coat (3/8″) brown coat (3/8″) and finish coat (1/4″).
