Costs vary widely with design. In general, LAVA is competative. For insulated exterior walls only: LAVA will cost 30% more than frame, or 5% more than insulated CMU (if built for immediate and short term price value), or 5% to 30% less than frame or CMU (if built for imediate and long term quality and price value). If a massive look is desired architecturally, occasionally LAVA can cost less than frame regardless of value concerns. Overall house construction costs might increase or decrease 0-8% using LAVA depending upon complexity.
