100% of Exterior Walls Built with Fox Blocks ICF

Product: Fox Blocks

Project Started – June 2007, Project Completed: May 2008

  • Walkout lakefront ranch style home designed and constructed primarily by owner/builder with certain aspects completed by hired subcontractors.
  • ICF’s were used to help with creating a quiet home environment, reducing energy costs for cooling and heating, and storm resistant in the tornado prone state of Nebraska.
  • Fox Blocks are manufactured locally and able to be installed by the owner/builder with a minimal crew.
  • Fox Blocks corbel ledge blocks were used on both the interior walls to support the floor load and exterior walls to support an exterior brick facing.
  • During the stacking of Fox Blocks construction phase of the lower level, strong winds blew out the south walls and attached bracing. Reconstruction of the damaged walls took only 2 days.
From the General Contractor

“I have always dreamed of building my own ICF home.  The quietness with a lakefront home is such a comforting thing.  My wife and I love the security and protection we feel by being surrounded by concrete walls.  We can’t wait to measure our utility bills and see the savings”.

--Leo Pearson, Pearson Construction
