Hi - We're doing large castle, and plan to construct the castle towers, walls of 2x4 and 2x6 framing, with styrofoam carved to look like stone.

We have a fire inspector who is EXTREMELY stringent with use of various materials. Any suggestions of what we can/should do in order to use the material of choice - and still remain compliant.

Anyone have similar experience? Suggestions for how to make fire inspector happy if we do this?

There are coating materials available out there that can fireproof styrofoam. It is a thick paint that separates the foam from the flames sufficiently to make the barrier "fireproof." Once it is coated, you can paint the surface as normal. I have only seen it used once on a show I lit, so I didn't have anything to do with its application, but it passed muster.

There is a product made by Rosco called FlexCoat that is intended for this purpose.
