Styrofoam Concrete Block Basements


My mother added on to her house 3 years ago. The basement addition was made from concrete filled styrofoam blocks. She now wants me to put some type of "permanent" protection over the new addition. What should I use and is it necessary?

Thank you for your input.

Being styrofoam it is probably required to use drywall for fire protection.

There is a whole section on ICF construction and a lot of helpful advise.
