This week, many of you attended the International Builders' Show in Las Vegas, which offered attendees a glimpse into the future-the New American Home. The NAH's exterior walls as well as the foundation walls were constructed using ICFs. Typically, an ICF application helps a homeowner use nearly 70% less energy for heating, and 60% less energy for cooling when compared to a traditional wood frame home.

In the era of sustainable construction, ICFs are the proverbial silver platter for builders.
