I want to say is that if you do plow through old posts, that this forum and That Home Site has been the most useful to me - but it goes both ways - post questions and answers (things you have read etc..) to get relevant topics going. I have also met another O-B through the Connections on this website and they are building locally and we have hit it off and are sharing all our info - that has been really applicable and fun to experience the same issues, 'be in the same boat' so to speak.

Does anyone know of Lawrence-area ICF and Ground Source Heating/Cooling resources? 

 

I’d also like to see any DIY home building resources like software, books, websites, etc...   

 

My concept is to subcontract everything but act as my own builder. 

 

I am planning a new home in rural Douglas County.  I’d like to use ICF for the walls and traditional wood frame for the floors, roof and interior walls.  I’ll use all right-angles for maximum space.

 

I plan on having a full walk-out basement and two stories on top for living and bedrooms.

 

I also want to use ground source heating/cooling to save energy costs. 

 

Any information is most appreciated.

PM me, I am in Kansas City and can steer you toward some local ICF resources.  I know some out your way, some better than others.

If you run the numbers, I doubt you will get ground source heat pump in our area to be cost effective.  You operating cost savings simply won't outweigh your increase in capital costs.  However not everything we do is tied to the almighty dollar, some things we do simply because we want.

Hey Dan,

I'm entering this thread a little late, but also live in the Lawrence area.  We are in the finishing stages of a spec home 8 miles south of Lawrence (SIP construction) and plan to begin an ICF home (personal residence) this spring/summer just down the road. 

PM me.  Maybe we could sit down and discuss the pros and cons.  Having been down the road once, I'm starting to get a feel for the process. 

Doug

Hi Doug,

I'm getting ready to build near Topeka. I'm going with ICFs and maybe SIPs. Would like to hear some of your thoughts if you're still here. Let me know if you're willing to answer a few questions.

Thanks,

Mak in Auburn
