ICF (insulated concrete form) and concrete house plans offer a number of advantages for the eco-conscious homeowner. These homes are recognized for their thermal efficiency,  meaning energy savings. Concrete block house designs use CMUs (concrete masonry units) as the primary material for construction. ICF house designs use insulated concrete forms (ICFs) as the primary material.

Every year, there are more homeowners who are looking for a green construction method that is also versatile enough to accommodate virtually any style. That’s where ICF houses come into the picture. Unlike traditional builds, which involve creating the frame for the house out of wood beams and which rely on foam or fiberglass insulation, an ICF design utilizes interlocking forms with a lightweight foam exterior. These forms are available in many sizes and styles, enabling their use in every aspect of a home seamlessly and efficiently. The key is the hollow space in between the foam walls of the forms. As the forms are placed in the appropriate configuration to create the walls of the home, concrete is poured inside and left to set. This bonds the forms together and creates contiguous walls throughout the structure.

Benefits of Concrete & ICF House Plans 

  • Chief among the advantages is the impressive strength and reliability that comes from concrete construction. As the house has solid concrete walls with no discernable seams or breaks, it is able to withstand the effects of natural disasters such as earthquakes and storms with ease.
  • Another benefit of ICF homes in particular is that they feature supreme insulation and temperature control. By combining the sturdiness of uninterrupted concrete with the thickness of foam, the structure built the home plan can withstand extreme levels of heat or cold without causing discomfort to the occupants. In turn, this helps to lower energy bills and decrease demand on a central heating or cooling system.
  • As concrete and foam do not come from scarce natural resources, they also create a significantly smaller impact on local and national ecosystems.
  • The energy efficiency of the design also helps to further reduce effects on the environment.
  • Because Concrete Block / ICF House Plans rely on the concrete simply for the structural material and have no bearing on the final form, they lend themselves seamlessly to a wide range of design aesthetics. Once completed, Concrete homes are indistinguishable from those using other construction methods, and are significantly more soundproof as well.

If the beneficial features of these homes is something you are interested in, take a look at our concrete floor plans, and find the perfect style home for your family.

Concrete Block / ICF House Plans: A Vintage Style Is on the Rise Again

Practicality and Appealing Architectural Styles Merge in Concrete Homes     I grew up in an area of the world where as many as 20 tropical storms can hit the country in a year. I still remember the torrential downpours, the frightening winds, and the flooded streets. But within our home – located on the second floor of a concrete building ­­– all of us always felt safe. While some houses were battered by the rain and winds, with roofs and windows flying, we were sheltered in our “fortress” &nda
