Using ICFs in the FHB House Foundation
Insulated concrete forms are like Legos for builders.
Rather than setting up traditional form boards, pouring the concrete, then removing the form boards days later, the FHB House foundation walls rely on interlocking foam blocks that not only provide the form to fill with concrete, but also provide insulation that greatly outperforms the thermal resistance of solid concrete alone.
