ICF Home Testimonial

ICF Home Under Construction Survives Hurricane Katrina The Sundberg's home construction was 85% complete, when hurricane Katrina slammed into the area on August 29 with a huge storm surge and reported sustained winds from 125mph. The water reached an elevation of 28 feet. After the winds died down and the water retreated to the Gulf of Mexico, the Sundberg's found their home had survived the storm largely intact, with some blown out windows, and missing upstairs panels. Now they are focusing their efforts on finishing the building before the next storm strikes... They will certainly be prepared.

More on ICF Homes

Your ICF home can look exactly like you want it to look, like any other home, for nearly the same cost as the wood house "Bob the Builder" wants to build for you. From the outside, ICF homes look the same as wood framed homes since all finishes, such as brick, stucco and siding, can be used. On the inside, homeowners like the thicker walls that provide deep interior window sills for use as window display areas.

Tornado Proof Homes

Many people are asking me more and more about ICF (Insulating Concrete Form) Homes. I have a beautiful Nashville ICF home that is superior quality to others in the area. Over the next few days, I will be blogging about some of the features of this home and some of the reasons ICF homes are superior to stick built homes. To take a look at this awesome tornado proof home in Nashville, visit www.nashvillesafehome.info I want my family to be safe in a tornado or severe weather!! Able to withstand 250-mile-an-hour winds and wind-borne debris, the storm resistance of ICF homes is the #1 draw for people in hurricane and tornado zones. ICF walls are reinforced concrete, which has an excellent record of surviving natural disasters. Surveys of damage from hurricanes and tornadoes confirmed that reinforced concrete survives high winds better than traditional wood-built homes. In many instances, standing ICF homes were surrounded by collapsed wood homes. www.nashvillesafehome.info Nick Woodard www.nickwoodard.com 615.566.9839 nick@nickwoodard.com

Concrete Benefits...

Sticks and stones will break your bones...but 13 inch concrete walls will protect you! If you are unfamiliar with ICF Homes (Insulating Concrete Forms) let this blog be a little 411 for you to chew on. I am representing a property in Nashville that is constructed using concrete and steal instead of wood and nails. This 6,200 foot custom beauty has external walls built by infusing steel rebar surrounded with solid concrete. Not only that, but the floor joists between the 3 levels of the home are solid steel beams. There are many benefits to owning an ICF home. Here are just a few:
1. Safety: This home could take a direct hit from a tornado and still be standing. The entire home is literally build like "safe room". You might lose the roof and windows...but being surrounded by concrete and steel will save your life. 2. ICF homes are incredibly energy efficient. The cost to heat and cool this 6,200 square foot home is roughly the same cost that the owners had when they lived in a 2 bedroom apartment!!! 3. The home is relatively "sound proof". When you walk into this home it feels like you are walking into a music studio. Extremely quiet. You can't even hear the neighbor mow his yard 4. Fire: we all live with the fear of fire burning down our homes and taking everything that we own. Both concrete and steel do NOT BURN 5. Termites: Unless you find an African strain of Terminator Termites with steel jaws....the little bugs that we as Realtors in Tennessee have to always hated with don't stand a chance of causing damage. These are just a few of the benefits to owning an ICF home like this one. Other than the ICF benefits of this property, it is fully custom and unbelievably beautiful. On a hilltop overlooking Nashville, the home has the same type of feel as something that you would find in Annandale...located just 2 miles away. Custom flooring, ironwork, windows, doors, etc... make this one unlike anything you have ever seen. This property would be valued well over $1,100,000 if located in the Annandale Subdivision...but just 2 miles away off of Edmonson Pike...we are a steal at $784,990 for 6,200 feet on a full acre lot with a walkout basement.
