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

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.
- 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.
