Most likely we will build an ICF home, and reading Steven from Colorado Springs, CO's entries and many others who have built ICF homes has helped us to no end with our project.

We're making progress on getting the French doors in. With ICF construction, setting doors and windows is generally different than on a framed structure. Also add in that the dimensions of the openings during the concrete phase were sometimes off a bit, and setting the frames, getting the concrete sill chiseled to the correct height has taken a fair amount of time this week. But today we got the main level French doors, four of them to be exact, set in place! I still have to finish shimming and have some fine tuning of the hinges, but they are in, they operate very well considering they haven't been tuned yet.

Taking tomorrow off as it is opening day of skiing, but Friday, we'll set the two second floor French doors and the side door. Get hardware on and the house will be pretty secure. We still have to get the garage doors working to be able to fully lock the house, but at least it'll keep the skiers from using it as a warming hut. ;-)

The excavator backfilled the electric trench and cleaned up the area. Also had him dig two holes so we can put in posts for a driveway gate. I set form tubes, picked up some square steel channel and will try to mix concrete this weekend and set the posts. It's actually going to warm up a bit this weekend and it will be a good chance to get that done.

Great room door to the side deck. Both doors operate.
Kitchen door. This also has both doors operable for the future patio. Snow on the slope in the background.
