Manufacturer: Nudura ICF

Project Builder: G&S Creations, LLC

The property has a steep slope on one side that is approximately 100 feet below the pad site. Because of lot lines and site configurations, the design could only fit in a small area on the nearly 2-acre site. In order to maximize views and location on the lot, the design needed to match geographic constraints and an obtuse lot angle. There were also design review considerations by the home owners association. This forced the design to incorporate a 33-degree angle. Because of the ease of use for insulated concrete forms (ICFs), the owner used additional ICFs for the rear site wall and a detached storage building. This home was the first ICF home the building official had seen. He regularly brought city officials to review the work and regularly expressed how well the construction went. Although the home is more than 10,000 square feet under roof, it is still a retirement home for the home owners. Although elegant, they want to maintain costs. The owners have lived in the home for about 2.5 years, and to date, their highest electric bill was only $248.
