Some of you following the construction of “The House in the Woods” have asked about the system we are using to construct the foundation and above-grade walls of the house. The system is called “insulating concrete form” or ICF for short. The system consists of large foam blocks that are hollow in the middle. These blocks are stacked similar to Lego with rebar (horizontally and vertically) in the void between the foam faces. Concrete is then poured into the void. The foam faces of the form remain in place and become the wall insulation for the house. Drywall or other wall finishes can be attached directly to the foam on the interior of the wall as well as just about any desired exterior finish to the exterior foam face. The primary advantages are speed of construction and enhanced wind, fire, acoustical, and thermal performance. Thermally they are about 25% better than a typical 2x6 wall with batt insulation. While the system is a little more costly than standard wood framing, the current price of lumber made using ICF a “no brainer” for this project. I’ve captioned the pictures with more detailed information about the forms. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions in the comment section below.
