I've been in the building trades for over 35 years and although this is a cool block system, the others commenting are right in that it's a thermo-bridge only attracting heat to the interior especially if being built in Mexico. Of course I don't agree that this could be all built for $2500 USD either but no matter, it has no energy saving benefits at all. Maybe great for a foundation or crawl space for those that don't know how to lay cinder block.
I do see the future home building getting away from the western stick framing as it has been changing the times already. I am thinking outside the box now and looking at EPS insulated cement panel construction like in this video; https://youtu.be/NPqnWLax6V8 and although shipped from China like everything is these days, building cost under $20 bucks per sq. ft. can't be beat in the USA and try to match these features with traditional stick framing;

Product features:

Heat insulation and preservation: The feature of energy saving boards is mainly reflected in its heat preservation and insulation, the major material is polystyrene grains and other anit-freezing and heat preserving environmental protection materials, which could adjust the indoor temperature at a constant range thus achieving the effects of ecological adjustment.

Water-proof & fire-proof: The face panel of energy-saving boards on both side are 4.5mm calcium silicate fire proof boards and the main material is a mixture of cement, sand, fly ash and so on. Tests have shown that the energy saving boards have a fire proof limit of 4 hours against a high temperature of 1000° C and the incombustibility has reached National A level (China), besides, these materials doesn't give out toxic gas and perfectly meet the international environmental standard, the tests also prove the water containers can be made by the panel with no need for plastering and the containers have no leakage at all.

Sound insulation and absorption: The inside constructional material ( EPS polystyrene grain ) function well in sound insulation and sound-absorbing.

Easy construction and time saving: For the same construction work that takes 12 people and 60 minutes to complete with traditional blocks, only 3 people and 60 minutes will do same coverage using EPS panel boards, thus can save a lot of labor and time cost in the construction.

High Intensity and quake proof: The energy saving boards are all with high intensity and the earthquake resistance can reach 8.5 magnitudes, the shock resistance index is several times higher than other wall material, the boards can be nailed directly and with expansion bolt to lift and hang heavy things, they also can be covered by ceramic tile, wall paper and wood panel, coating.

Although missing some of the above mentioned features of EPS cement panels, I can also see the ease of construction and labor savings in other easy to build systems, no kidding, check this one out; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgdcBOWPYZc If the IRC changes with the times and these meet the R-VALUE DETERMINED BY THE 2012 IECC CLIMATE ZONE MAP well sign me up for this interesting way to build homes.

A must read
heat blows in the basement only when the main floor thermostat comes on, it turns off too when the main floor thermostat is satisfied leaving the basement 6-8 degrees colder

They have delivered everything I've ever ordered, even from the USA. Never damaged and I get it as fast as it came to them. I might be due to the extra 50 pesos I give to help with their gas.
