Things are taking shape

Jun 3, 2013


It’s been a productive week at the build site and the house is starting to take shape. A big group of volunteers and a special guest, Ottawa-Orleans MPP Phil McNeely were on site to install the insulated concrete forms and pour the concrete for the foundation.

Did you know?

Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) are an incredibly energy efficient, structurally tough and fire resistant building system for a foundation or wall that average up to 40% less energy to heat and cool compared to other construction methods. 

Here are a few photos from the week:
