ICF Home Design - Texas

ICF Home Designed and built in Texas.

Project Status: Construction Completed.

This home just won first place in the ICF Builder Awards. See: Top Award by ICF Builder Competition

A large ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) constructed home on a Slab Foundation. ICF is a great means of building a more than solid concrete structure with very high energy efficiency. This project utilizes not only the ICF exterior walls but also full concrete floor systems throughout. I will be adding more information and images as the construction proceeds so be sure to check back for the updates on this unique home project.
