Topic: CSEB vs Solid Concrete block for wall

Hi,
I am thinking of building a cost efficient and energy efficient house.

I have two options in front of me

A) CSEB - Compressed Stabilised Earth BlocksCSEB - Compressed Stabilised Earth Blocks

B) Solid Concrete block

1)
I like interlocking  CSEB, but I don't its mud color lock and texture.
Is there a way to paint CSEB paint like a plastered-smooth wall without having it cement plastered  ?
I have heard grey cement coarse putty and paint works.

2)
Is Solid Concrete block house is more hot inside?

3)
Is 6" wall OK for two story residential construction using Solid Concrete block?

SOME LIMITATIONS OF CSEB
•    Proper soil identification is required or unavailability of soil.
•    Unawareness of the need to manage resources.
•    Ignorance of the basics for production & use.
•    Wide spans, high & long building are difficult to do.
•    Low technical performances compared to concrete.
•    Untrained teams producing bad quality products.
•    Over-stabilization through fear or ignorance, implying outrageous 

•    Under-stabilization resulting in low quality products.
•    Bad quality or un-adapted production equipment.
•    Low social acceptance due to counter examples (By unskilled people, or bad soil & equipment).

1) Yes, Completed walls require either a reinforced bond beam or a ring beam on top or between floors (8')and if the blocks are not stabilized, a plaster finish, usually stucco wire/stucco cement and or lime plaster. Stabilized blocks create a brick wall that if properly stabilized can be left exposed with no outer plaster finish. There are also countless local materials that can be used for natural plasters and tuck pointing techniques that help to reduce the total cost of construction.
2) No, Also, due to the enormous mass — these are monolithic walls — CEB has excellent thermal performance, reducing heating and cooling costs.
3) No, Standards for foundations are similar to those for brick walls. A CEB wall is heavy. Footings must be at least 10 inches thick, with a minimum width that is 33 percent greater than the wall width. If a stem wall is used, it shall extend to an elevation not less than eight inches (203 mm) above the exterior finish grade. Rubble-filled foundation trench designs with a reinforced concrete grade beam above are allowed to support CEB construction.
