About Us

Quality construction in Virginia since 2003

About ICF Homes

We made an early decision to specialize in Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) walls – and that decision was an easy one. ICF homes offer enormous energy savings, higher quality interior air, high resistance to wind, while keeping a warm and cozy feel inside. As a client focused company, these features, among many others, met our commitment to home building excellence.

Due to ICF walls thermal dynamic design, we can use the steady ground temperature at the footer level to help heat and cool the entire house.

We believe using the earth’s natural energy to help heat and cool is the most sustainable and energy efficient method to build a home. The homes look like any other traditional home: you cannot see the concrete in the walls, just like you cannot see the 2×4’s in a traditional wall.

ICF Homes of Virginia believes that quality is a journey and not a destination. We are constantly improving our building techniques and offering our clients a wide variety of buyer selected features. At ICF Homes, your home building experience will include selecting from cabinets, carpeting, trim, countertops, bathroom fixtures, and many other amenities directly from our suppliers. You will visit our supplier’s showrooms and select your own unique interior décor creating a home that can truly be called “custom”

Builder Dave Phelps has almost two decades of experience with residential construction, emphasizing quality and exceeding client expectations.  He established ICF Homes of Virginia to meet the growing demand for very efficient custom homes.

Builder Dave Phelps was a member of the graduating class of 1994 at the Virginia Military Institute, majoring in Physics.

Meet Dave Phelps

I have three teenage children, two daughters and a son, and I love being a dad! I enjoy spending as much time with them as possible. I am an avid fitness enthusiast and enjoy being outside.  I have completed triathlons, obstacle course races and CrossFit competitions. I am also very active in the Fredericksburg Area Builders Association (FABA) and was the President in 2017. I worked in corporate America for many years, and decided to build my own home in 2004. I looked into different building technologies and determined that Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) are the best way to build a

home. My background is in Physics and I recognized the geothermal benefits to the concrete core and strength of the walls to wind loads. It has become my passion to build the most energy efficient homes for my clients. My personal house is a net zero, (produces as much energy as it consumes). We have photovoltaic “solar” panels and hot water collectors on the roof.

If you are interested in pursuing a net zero home, I believe an ICF home is the best structure.

Please feel free to contact me about how we can build your dream home. Thank you.   – Dave Phelps
