Insulated Concrete Formwork

In addition to being a certified Honest Abe dealer and installer, Rocky-K also specializes in ICF foundation packages. This construction technique is the perfect complement to your dream log home. The benefits of Insulated Concrete Formwork are numerous including:

  • Connector.

    Energy Efficiency

    The continuous insulation of the formwork creates minimal air flow through the foundation to reduce heat loss. ICF provides a very high thermal resistance typically above R-17.

  • Connector.

    Storm Resistance

    Insulated Concrete formwork is strong enough to stand up to 250mph winds. This far exceeds standard stick-built framing and provides an unbeatable level of protection in a home.

  • Connector.

    Sound Absorbtion

    ICF walls have much lower rates of acoustic transmission. Standard thickness ICF walls have shown sound transmission coefficients (STC) between 46 and 72 compared to 36 for standard fiberglass insulation and drywall.

  • Connector.

    Fire Protection

    ICF walls can have four- to six-hour fire resistance rating and negligible surface burning properties.

  • Connector.

    Indoor Air Quality

    Because they are constructed without a sheet plastic vapor barrier, ICF walls can regulate humidity levels, mitigate the potential for mold and facilitate a more comfortable interior while maintaining high thermal performance.

  • Connector.

    Pest Protection

    Due to the continuous nature of the ICF walls, it is substantially more difficult for pests (both rodents and insects) to find a way into your home.

Common Questions

As with any home, the features and amenities included in the home will direct the final cost of the home. We encourage you to meet with us to discuss your ideas and we can assist you in finding the plan that will meet your needs and your budget.
Yes, many banks and lending institutions will finance log home projects. Some banks, for various reasons, will not lend on log homes so it is best to ask right away before getting into the application process. We can give you information from several companies who will lend on log homes.
Addressing three issues early in the planning stage will help your project progress smoothly.
The first issue to address is determining how much money you will have to work with. This will affect what land you purchase and the features your home will have. If financing will be needed, it is important to go through a prequalifying process with a lending institution and establish a budget for land purchase and the building of your home.

Next, begin looking for that special place where you want to build your home. As you address these first two items, begin a notebook of clippings or photos of features you like about homes you see in magazines or visit in person. This will be very helpful in communicating to us what you want your home to be like.

All homes require a certain amount of maintenance to keep them looking as beautiful as the day they were built. For example, it is required that you apply an exterior finish to your logs, therefore, we include the exterior stain in our log packages. This finish adds beauty and protection to the home, and is available in a wide variety of colors. Depending on your home’s exposure to sun and weather, you should re-stain as needed. When you purchase your log package from Rocky-K Log Homes, you will be provided with care and maintenance instructions and tips.
You will need to check with local officials for any rules or regulations that will affect the size or type of structure built on the land (i.e. lake property, subdivided land). Other questions to ask are:

  • Is the property accessible to construction equipment?
  • Does the land have access to water and good drainage?
  • Will there be extra costs to bring utilities to the site, especially telephone service and electricity?

Often, the landscape will help determine how your floor plan will need to be modified. Having your land in hand early on in the process will be a plus.

All of our homes thus far have involved some sort of customization. Many times folks will use the standard plan for ideas, or even combine plans. If none of those are close to what you had in mind, we can help you design a floor plan of your very own.
Being your own contractor can save you some money. But keep in mind that you will be responsible for hiring and scheduling all subcontractors. This can often be more time consuming than folks think, so be sure your schedule will allow for this. Many lenders will not approve a loan unless a professional contractor is building the home or acting as a builder of record.
