    As a construction contractor I use this stuff constantly. Has anyone repurposed it for anything?

    Extruded structural polystyrene foam panel with fleece fabric on both faces to allow bonding of cement. I wouldn't built a lightweight megayacht out of it, but I've built plenty of showers out of it. Maybe integral ps/glass parts? Cooler, seat backs etc. Just wondered. Cheap and common, and strong for it's weight. Waterproof and vapor proof. Probably worth getting a piece from Home Depot and experimenting.
