Question from John:

how many 14"x10"x4" blocks do I need for a 1300sq foot house 8 foot high

Hi John,

I can't answer without the dimensions and shape of the base of the house. I assume it's a rectangle but it might be a long thin rectangle or a square or something in between. These would require different numbers of blocks.
