What You Should Know About ICF Construction
You may have come across the term 'ICF' or 'Concrete house plan' in your search to find your dream home and may be wondering just what is meant by this term. ICF stands for Insulated Concrete Form and refers to an alternative to conventional timber framing construction. While finished ICF homes do not look outwardly different from a traditional timber framed house plan, they do offer significant benefits that may interest today's home builder. For instance they are quieter, energy-efficient, and potentially more comfortable.
