I.C.F. Foundation Systems

There are many people choosing to build with I.C.F. (insulated concrete foundation) systems these days.  The product and method of construction might seem new to our Province, however, I prepared drawings for my first ICF house near 15 years ago.  The client who built that first ICF called awhile ago saying he was going to build another - that's a good testament to quality of technology.
There are many different manufacturers of this product - here's one particular product available locally.

Below: Here's a house under construction using the ICF Wall System.
