I've been wickedly hooked on this website now for weeks. It's unbelievably informative! I can't believe I'm actually sitting here doing a journal. Never thought I would become so involved, but after reading the others I can see what an awesome memoir to have after a LONG project. So what the heck!

It has only been 48 hours since the ground was approved to build on, and in that time the contractors have hand-dug the footings, set the footing forms, poured the footings (including the shallow frost-protected footing in back), setup the ICF bracing, and placed most of the basement Logix 6" forms, and built the basement window bucks. The guys at Turtle Wall are amazing. They even worked on a Saturday to make up schedule time that was lost during the problems we encountered with the soil.

Next week the goal is to get the basement ICF wall poured, get plumbing in the floor, put down R-10 insulation, get radiant tubing in the floor (1/2" PEX) pour the slab, and get the waterproofing membrane on the exterior walls. Once that's done, we can install the steel beams, put in the subfloor in using Open Joist 2000 trusses, backfill, and get the main level ICF going.

The house location was very tight, we only had about 6" between the front and the front setback and 5" between the side and the 10' septic setback. We triple-checked it, and the contractors did a great job of putting the house exactly where it needed to be. Monday we order a survey required by the bank so we can do our first draw.

Hi Brian,

Lookin' good!  I am trying to get price comparisons to the CMU I originally was going to do.  Did the ICF company quote you by the square foot of your home, or the wall square footage to come up with a price for the total job?  What did you pay for labor versus materials if you don't mind my asking?

 

Thanks!

all in all, the 6" Logix walls ended up being about $9 per wall SQ/FT and the 4" Logix walls ended up being $8 per wall SQ/FT including labor, forms, concrete, waterproofing, etc. My foundation is one of the more complicated ones, it has a total of 10 outside corners and 6 inside corners.

Where are you located? The ICF guys I used do travel if you are in the midwest. You can PM me if you want to chat more.
