What Houzz contributors are saying:

Last, while using insulated concrete forms is a terrific way to build an energy-efficient and quiet home, you won't end up with an easily modifiable structure. Because the walls are made of concrete and reinforcing steel, it's important to know well in advance the exact location and size of all window and door openings. You simply don't want to go about adding windows or doors or changing sizes after the walls have been erected. Doing your homework upfront is beneficial for any project, but it's essential when you're building with ICFs.More in Know Your House:What Makes Up a Home's Foundation | What Makes Up a Floor StructureComponents of Efficient Walls | Components of a Roof
