The Macomb County Chapter (metropolitan Detroit) of Habitat for Humanity and the Insulating Concrete Form Association joined forces to build a home in Roseville, Mich. The home will be a 1,200 square foot unit using both insulating concrete forms and structural insulated panels. This is the first Macomb County Chapter to use both methods on one home.
Quad-Lock Building Systems LTD is providing the ICFs for the walls and Pacemaker Building Systems is providing SIPs for the roofing panels. Dryvit will be providing its TAFS product. Other manufacturers have yet to be named.
"Our family is very grateful for the opportunity we are being given," said Beverly. "We would like to say a very big 'thank you' to the ICFA and all the people volunteering. In any way, big or small, it is what makes this happen."
