Don’t choose between form and function when you can have both! ICF is such a versatile building material that your new home will have the look and feel that you crave while also providing a safe and energy-efficient environment. It’s the best of both worlds!
Let’s look at some examples of the beauty of ICF:
FLORIDA BEACH HOUSE
Located in Islamorada, FL, this 4,500 sq. ft. beauty isn’t just glamorous. With all walls and floors built with ICF, the home withstood a direct assault from Hurricane Irma as construction was nearing completion. Minor cosmetic damage was sustained while a nearby building had to undergo a major rebuild.
This lovely ranch-style home in Jasper, Tennessee is a 2,315 sq. ft. rustic dream. Plenty of large windows allow the family to enjoy plenty of sunlight while the natural elements of the exterior help it blend in with the outdoor environment.
West Sussex, England is home to this home, a 4,400 sq. ft. crescent-shaped beauty. It was custom designed to maintain the lovely surrounding landscape and withstand the harsh winters and hot summers by maintaining a steady internal temperature.
With a unique southwestern design, the Howell Residence sits atop a hill in the baking sun of Fountain Hills, Arizona. Keeping this 2,898 sq. ft. home cool was one of the many reasons the owners chose to use ICF and they are quite happy with their choice, saving around 40% on energy costs.
FORT WORTH RESIDENCE
If Disney decides to do a Texan princess story, it will surely be set in this Fort Worth castle. The 5,990 sq. ft. stone fortress is ready to host some serious royalty with features such as a waterfall, a giant spiral staircase, and a tower.
The Quilter residence is a California-Spanish style 1,600 sq. ft. home in Laguna Beach, CA. It is focused on sustainability and energy efficiency with solar hot water panels built into the roof. The curvature in the walls just goes to show how versatile and workable ICF is as a building material.
