The walls are created by setting ICFs ( Insulated Concrete Forms ) on the footers stacking them up like Legos. When the walls reach a designated height they are pumped with concrete. This building system creates an exterior wall equivalent to an R50 stick built home and reduces heating and cooling cost by 60%. They also can withstand winds of 190 miles per hour. Our thanks go out to our base crew volunteers and Watauga Concrete Finishers and Virginia Carolina Concrete for a perfect job. This Saturday we will continue with the walls and will level out the lower pad.
