Remember the word "Plastic" in that famous movie I can't remember the name of, but Dustin Hoffman was the kid. My stroke last year is no help either.

Here's the next word for all of you:  THINSHELL, both with metal stud framing and without, is the single biggest development in the world of construction and the AEC industry, and I invented it about 35 years ago in Hawaii.

Tilt-up die hards bemoan the entry of the replacement for common, thick, heavy conventional tilt-up but thinshell is here to stay and it's not just for tilt-up type buildings anymore.

Take a look at SteelCrete; MetalCrete is my predecessor but is way obsolete, yet Paul Clark still markets it very well across the country. Wake up and smell SteelCrete.

Steelform is a concrete on stud only product, using studs with punched out flanges but the disadvantages are numerous and energy claims untrue. A similar product is rolled by an American company my SteelCrete embedment can be used with either on or off stud and exceeds all other comers by leaps and bounds. Of course I'd probably say that anyway but in this case it's true.

I also invented a folding mobile, then the double-wide in 1957 when most of that industry was asleep. I spent a half day with FLW in Scottsdale but he died shortly afterward before I could attend the fellowship there at Talieson.

Any questions? I've got answers.
