ICF Homes Around Oregon

August 7, 2010

Winsome Construction is an Oregon green builder with an impressive portfolio of ICF construction homes. One of its projects, the Stonehaven townhomes, is a great example of how ICF construction can be cost-effective for different types of residential dwellings. Priced at $200-230 per sq ft, these town homes feature energy efficient technologies, including radiant floor heating, a heat recovery ventilation system (HRV), and ENERGY STAR lighting and appliances. Winsome Homes also provides homeowners the opportunity to drastically reduce their already low utility bills through pre-plumbing and pre-wiring of the homes for photovoltaics and solar hot water.

In addition to energy-efficient technologies, the Stonehaven townhomes feature reclaimed beams and millwork, recycled carpeting, fiber cement siding, and a composition roof with a 40-year warranty. Low-VOC paints, a central vacuum system, and the HRV help to provide homeowners with healthier indoor air quality.
