On Jan. 2, 2005, we lost our home/business to a fire. We had built our home and only lived in it for 4 years, so it was a great blow. Everyone was safe and that's what mattered. We had always wanted a log home, but thought we would wait until our kids were grown. With this loss facing us we dicided "Why wait", let's do it now! So, that was the beginning of building our dream again!
One of the "Major" changes since we built our own log home is a change in employment, We were mostly a stick frame home builder and did some comercial building, but after building our log home we went strictly to building log homes, which we love.
Take a look at our Web Page at: www.sherwoodlogandcustomhomes.com
Are you lucky enough to be living in a log home?
Yes, we are blessed with a log home, and we help others build theirs!
What timeframe are you looking to start your dream home?
Love the slide show on your site - cool fireplace, too! (No pun intended;-)
In answer to your question about ICF, I have minimal knowledge of that method. There was a local news article about a home near here that used ICF construction, not only for the basement, but also for the exterior house walls. One of the builders I've spoken to recently advised that they build their "traditional" walls with three layers of insulation, which amounts to over 30-R.
What else can you tell me about ICF?
