I’ve been meaning to write here about our new house, which is steadily rising out of the ground. For now, here’s a picture.

Our ICF house starts to take shape - it's a bit like building with Lego

There is an image here of a single ICF house left standing after Hurricane Katrina (the surrounding “stick build” houses are simply gone). This is what resonates with our boys. Super energy efficient? Hmm, okay. Able to withstand hurricane winds and nearby explosions (yes, that’s another link I must dig out and share)? Bring it on!

I'd love to hear your thoughts
