These pictures are from Mr.R of the North. He is using the Duralite Cellulose Board as walls for his DIY Swiftlet farm.
I had used it for some of my Swiftlet Farms. Not bad, but it chip off easily before plastering. A thick plastering on both sides is needed for good insulation. This is another alternative way to build Swiftlet farm besides relying on Light Weight Bricks. It is cost effective and easy to work with as it comes in various sizes and thickness.
