Installing an ICF Foundation:

The ICF foundation provides R22+ of insulation value and is considered a green building product. Traditional wooden forms are not required for the foundation walls, reducing job site waste, and the blocks are manufactured using recycled materials.  

The foam walls of the block contain integrated studs at 16" on center. Once the core of the wall is fillled with concrete, ICF is essentially a entire wall system, complete with insulation and vapour barrier.

Take a look at our ICF page for the installation steps.

Creemore Custom Build

We have been collaborating closely with the owners to build this 4,500 sq ft new home. This house features 2 levels, a fully finished basement, and a 3rd level belvedere overlooking panoramic views of the escarpment. Tall ceilings and elongated windows create the traditional victorian farm house feel, while new-age products and finishes give the efficiency and appeal of modernized building! 

The Amvic ICF foundation creates a comfortable, dry, efficient basement. This basement was designed to sit higher out of the ground, providing the opportunity for large windows. The natural light eliminates the traditional dark basement feel and creates a fantastic extended living space!

We are now working on the interior finishing stage. The interior features lots of ship lap panelling, reimagined antique details, and brilliant finishes selected by the owner!

Steel beams were notched into the joists to allow for a flush ceiling, vs. the need for dropped bulkheads found in most conventional framing.
