Nutmeg Homes' ICF Construction Means Greener Vancouver Island Homes

Posted: Jun 28, 2011

Nutmeg Homes ICF Green Builders Comox ValleyNutmeg Homes has been building Insulated Concrete Forms homes in the Comox Valley, on Vancouver Island since 1999. “Our list of standard methods, materials and items generally grows and matures with every home we build,” says owner Paul Witt. “We strive for constant improvement in; our designs, energy efficiency, structural strength and long term sustainability. A home should be more than a major financial investment, it should also be comfortable, durable and efficient.” ICF houses use up to 40% less energy than the average new home in BC. Insulated Concrete Forms or ICFs are hollow foam blocks or panels, which are stacked to form the walls of the home. The forms are filled with steel-reinforced concrete to create a solid structure. The resulting walls offer solid construction that provides a draft-free, quiet, healthy and comfortable living environment. For more information on Nutmeg Homes and their ICF construction process visit their website.
