Tilt Wall Design
We’ve been working on a home design for quite some time and have finally settled on a floor plan. We are now looking into various wall systems, but I haven’t found a “perfect solution” in my research.
The system I’m now considering is basically an ICF without the exterior foam.
I’m considering this wall vs ICF for two main reasons:
1. It would allow me to stamp the exterior concrete to create the wall finish.
2. We live on the property now and have struggled with carpenter ants and bees. My neighbors had termites, so I’m hesitant to put foam on the exterior.
The property is in Fort Worth, TX (Zone 3).
Fox Blocks has a plant near me, so shipping shouldn’t be too hateful.
The plan would be to lift the concrete and foam as a tilt wall and then screw the studs into the fox blocks for mechanical and drywall.
Any suggestions or thoughts on this idea?
