Easy to assemble. Would be better if plastic connectors spanned the entire height of the block so that there isn't a gap between blocks where you can't put screws.

Not a fan. Theres nothing green about these. Not even the chip board pallet they ship them on. The foundation forming part is OK. The finishing of them is problematic. Anything you surface the foam with will have to be glued on right. That union is no stronger than the foam itself. I had problems with lath flaking of the foam surface before I applied stucco. So, what to do? They say you can use spray foam as an adhesive. The best no doubt, but the foam forms themselves have very thin sections that are fragile. Will return to the traditional method of wood forms for foundations moving forward.

Works great, but only being able to by in bundles of 20 makes it not cost effective for small projects. NOTE - for some reason you can't buy the 6in forms, only 7.5 in so you have to buy more concrete.

The smart blocks were easy to snap together with the plastic tethers. I set two foam pieces facing each other and easily slid the tethers down into the blocks. I added a small room and used two orders of the smart blocks to put in a 29ft linear wall 48 inches tall. Blocks made project easy.
