We begin with a clean dry excavation site and perforated drain tile for added drainage security

The perforated Drain Tile is then covered with 6 inches of drain rock

Once our perfectly level footings are poured we then add another 10 inches of drain rock.

The Insulated Concrete Form blocks are then assembled and these blocks are filled with 6 inches of concrete. Independent Third Party Testing now supports that these walls perform to an R40 level.

Winter Grade Peel n Stick is then applied as a water proof barrier below grade

The Peel N Stick is then further protected from punctures by a Dimplex membrane

The Comslab floor system is then attached and poured to a 4 inch thickness in the field and 11 inches in the V beams

The Comslab floor system immediately after concrete placement

Perimeter drain tile and filter fabric cover that is draped over the rock before backfill. This prevents sediments from potentially clogging the perforated pipe

And so begins the next floor of ICF.

No worries around winter construction and potential moisture related problems such as mould and rot.

Rosemary Manor now starting to look like the lovely Gal she is. James Hardie Artisan Siding and Shingles are being attached here.
