I was at HD picking up a few odds and ends and stopped by to price their 2" x4x8 pink foam board. Thirty bucks and some change a sheet!! I paid $17.00 last year! I had wanted to pick up a couple more sheets to make two more stone walls but won't be paying those prices. What's the stuff going for in your neck of the woods?

Does no one in southern Cali use insulation? There's a hell of a lot of stucco down there, I can't believe it would all be cement-based and not EIFS, unless they use strictly expanded foam for it there.

Oh well... as for the price, you can always use the ol' expanded foam (styrofoam) as long as you have a good tough topcoat to keep the beads from crumbling off.

Oh, you can get styrofoam here, but just the white sheet type. The R factor of the pink/blue stuff is just not needed here since it doesn't get cold enough (tell that to the folks in San Fran in the winter!). Everything seen on my websites made of styro is the white type.... what people call the crumbly bead type. I think it gets a bad rap - It only beads if you BREAK it and if you're breaking it you're doing something wrong.

OOOOR if your cutting it sanding it or doing anything other than burning it. That stuff is a pain in the ass, but i may have to use it if we dont find anything cheaper.
