The key creativity in this project was in showcasing the lego-like experiencein working with ICF. In order to pull this off, the team coordinated efforts to paint the blocks and stage the job site so the ICF block stacking could take place in one day. The team took great care in staggering the pattern to truly resemble a home built with lego-like pieces.
In the first build day, 500 people stopped by to check out the project and inquire about the build. With so much media attention and high levels of visitation, job site safety was a high priority, and the team had to ensure the painted ICF blocks and construction site looked sharp. A YouTube video of the build process has generated more than 50,000 views to date!
This home’s outstanding architectural features include high ceilings, arched openings, a private in-law suite with its own kitchenette, and a patio seating area designed to house two families comfortably.
