Hi Charlie,

I like the idea of using ceramics.  I recall seeing some ceramic panels used
in Japanese manufactured housing that were structural, finished on two sides
and provided a combination of thermal insulation and mass that looked to me
like it would be good in climates with primarily cooling loads.  Know
anything about them?  Or similar products?  Give me an update.  - Terry
