It's been awhile since we've updated things here, but there's a really good reason for that! We have officially moved out of the house we were renting in Lakeway & are now living on the land in our old converted Eagle tour bus complete with all the necessities (sacrifice is part of making the dream of mortgage-free home ownership come alive, so no complaints here. We also want the kids to look at things like this as more of an adventure so they'll be more likely to step off and live their dreams into fruition. So basically we frame this as "it's like living in a long, skinny apartment!")
I (Jessica) am past the halfway point in my pregnancy, so there's a little extra drive to get to work on this house & bring baby home to a more suitable abode.
Kevin and I took an installation class with Nudura some months ago & are grateful for the ongoing support of this exemplary company, especially now that we're stacking the forms. From now on, we'll refer to the concrete forms as ICF blocks (Insulated Concrete Form blocks.)
I've got some pics to really give you an idea of how these suckers work...
This is what the inside of the ICF block looks like. The re-bar is part of the structural support which is pretty sweet; the inherent quality of concrete is that once it is cured, it becomes self-supporting!
