Iam a general contractor — a carpenter
by training — and have been
building custom wood frame houses
on North Carolina's Outer Banks
since 1975. In April 1997, when a local
couple asked me to build a house for
them using ICFs (insulated concrete
forms), all I knew about this technique
came from reading magazine ads. A year
later, I've successfully built a single-story
1,800-square-foot house using an ICF
system, and I plan to build more.
Strong, Energy-Efficient Shell
Because they were building on the
beach, the clients wanted to be sure the
house would stand up to high winds.
They discovered Polysteel at a home
show in Pennsylvania, and felt it
addressed their concerns.
