Announcing the 2008 ICF Builder Awards
The biggest, most prestigious “project of the year” competition gets underway for it’s fourth year. A few revisions in categories and judging criteria ensure it will be the best yet.

Ease of ICF Construction
By Dan Calabrese
From eliminating construction steps, to saving laborer’s backs, this article explains why ICF construction is among the easiest “alternative building methods.”

Project Profile: Volunteer Fire Station
Built using volunteer labor from the community it serves, this small-town fire station and community center proves that nearly anyone can build successfully with ICFs.

Panelizing ICFs
A few innovative companies are panelizing ICF wall sections, building houses in a few short days. Discover the advantages this technique offers, how it works, and whether it’s right for you.

How To: Wet-Setting the First Course
This high-stakes technique of setting the first course of blocks while the footing is still wet can save considerable time—if its done correctly. A series of new products on the market make this easier than in years past.

ICF Floors have Arrived
By Ken Williams
