Lake View Home: ICFs
Construction is underway on that house a couple posts ago with that GORGEOUS view. The owners decided to go with ICF for their exterior wall construction because of it’s energy efficiency and smaller carbon footprint.
For those of you thinking of new construction with ICFs, but wondering over the cost benefit, we have found that with a typical mortgage, the higher cost per month on your mortgage is equal to the cost savings on your energy bill. Of course this fluctuates based on your type of heat and how much you heat/cool your house. For example: one of our customers had propane heat and kept his house in the upper 70s, his cost savings per month was in the hundreds of dollars!
I’ll leave you with what we all love: the pictures!
