Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) house in Cache area. This house features a geo-thermal heat pump, radiant barrier in the attic along with spray foam insulation under the roof deck. We also used Low-E, argon gas filled windows, low VOC paint and dual flush toilets. Native Oklahoma rock is used on a portion of the veneer and we used EIFS (Exterior Insulation Finish System (Acrylic Stucco) on the balance of the exterior veneer.This view shows a partial wall in the kitchen area with ICF's going up around the wooden window bucks. Note the foam in the seams used to glue the ICF blocks to each other. Rebar is inserted into the 6" diameter holes, both vertically and horizontally, before the concrete is pumped in.Using foam to assemble a corner. ICF block used is by Apex. Each block is 16"X48"X10", with a 6" core every 16" for concrete to be pumped in. Apex ICF blocks are rated for 250 MPH winds, and 3 hour fire rating.Using pump truck to place 8" slump concrete above well braced garage door openings. The door on the right is a 16' opening.
Decorative touch by using an EIFS system.
