A Sharingwood member is building his house, himself, using foam core 
structural panels.  You do need a crane and a couple specialized tools.  He 
found that the dimensions of his panels were often slightly too big (better 
than being too small).  Plumbing goes outside the walls and is hidden by 
interior framing, electrical goes into raceways.  All of his interior walls 
are stick framed.

One of the disadvantages of this material is that the waste is bulky and 
landfill material, it can't be recycled, at least not in our area.  Using a 
crane you can assemble a building of this stuff in about 4 days if you know 
what you are doing.
