The 72,000-sq.-ft. house Pensmore also will be used for conferences sponsored by nonprofit groups and universities.
This graphic shows the key elements of the form system: PVC studs, foam panels, PVC inside form panels, strong-backs, braces, wales, scaffold supports, and form
Before the inside forms are installed, placing rebar and PEX tubing for radiant heating and cooling is an easy task.
Exterior panels are lifted to facilitate concrete placement. Notice the channeled stud supports which become a permanent part of the wall.
Looking from the inside of the house, note that the PVC forms and studs provide support for the 3/4-in.-thick insulation panels.
