In this post I wanted to talk a little about ICF – insulated concrete forms.
With growing concerns about health, quality of life, energy costs and natural resources rapidly being depleted, an increasing number of homebuilders around the world are turning to “green building.” This natural approach to homebuilding emphasizes quality construction, energy efficiency, good indoor air quality and livable neighborhoods.
There are many companies that sell this new green construction building blocks.
they are basically foam forms with plastic ribs that are built into the foam, rebar is set inside them and then they get filled with 3000 psi concrete making an air tight home with about a R-50 – which is very green.
