The house was built with ICF. ICF, or insulated concrete forms, is a superior exterior wall system that we recommend for all our new residential and commercial projects. Simply, the forms are stacked on top of each other and concrete is poured in the middle. This means the construction is cost efficient and goes up quickly. The home is fire / storm resistant, vermin-free and mold resistant. It has super efficiency! There is a 75% reduction in outside air infiltration, which means less dust and allergens. It is healthier for the homeowner(s). You can use any finish such as brick, siding, stucco, etc. An ICF home is maintenance free and will last for centuries versus decades for wood construction. For the roof, it’s constructed with SIPs. SIPs, or structural insulated panels, are strand boards that sandwiches foam plastic insulation. They are factory fabricated to fit any roof. They are durable and energy efficient. They are environmentally friendly. New homes and buildings should no longer be built out of wood! ICF and SIPs are the future!
This specific project is a charming farmhouse style home. The front porch is ideal to enjoy the seasonal weather. The attached two car garage connects to the home by a mudroom. Inside, the open concept consists of the kitchen to the dining / living room creating a flawless flow. Off the dining / living room, is a guest bedroom with an en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The main floor also has a powder room. The upper level has a large master suite complete with a spacious bathroom and walk-in closet, an office or guest bedroom, sitting area and laundry closet. Also, you have a choice of a first floor OR second floor master bedroom suite. What more could you ask for in this perfect home?
