Hello all I have a very specific question that I hope someone here can help me with. I seem to remember Bob Vila touring a fully concrete home. I don't think that it was a ICF home either. If my memory serves me right, it was like a two story bread box kind of home. I think that it looked like the front facade was made up of only four precast concrete sections. Some of the points that I remember about it was that there were triple pane glass windows and doors, and the second floor had sort of a sitting area at the top of the stairs. As I recall the inside was decorated rather modern, and chic. Almost ****** /Ikea styling. My question is, does anyone remember this house, and if so could they provide me with some information about the who what where's? I kind of thought that is was rather unique for the USA and rather energy efficient! Any help would be of great appercieation, since I have been racking my brain about this recently!!! Thanks a million,
Alex Olson

I remember seeing one of the shows like that. Perhaps try searching the web for EPS Insulated Concrete Forming Systems. They put the styrofoam forms together footer first then walls and fill them with concrete.
