In 2004, Dave decided to build his own home and did extensive research on various building technologies. He determined that Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) was the best way to build a home. He recognized the geothermal dynamic benefits of concrete walls encapsulated in insulation and the strength of the walls to wind loads.
