Building Your Dream Home
ACI-Homes works with architects to create highly energy-efficient sustainable homes that are practical and functional using the highest quality products blending seamlessly into the environment and incorporate solar generation and storage teamed with the advantages of ICF.
At ACI-Homes, we strive to build a home that has an energy flow that empowers you—taking the classic arts of function (Feng Shui) adding state of the art science and technology.
ICF blocks are filled with consolidated concrete reinforced with steel rebar. Walls can be built to 35 ft. and beyond and can be used as retaining walls for subterranean structures with ICF specific waterproofing materials. ICF’s were first developed and used in extreme northern cold climate of the Canadian Provinces.
The blocks snap together and can be installed and braced quickly and are impervious to rain and sunshine. A skilled layout person and several laborers can erect walls in less time than a framing or tilt-up crew. The bracing doubles as OSHA-approved permitted scaffolding.
