ICF foundation worth the extra cost?

posted by: northminnesota on 11.01.2012 at 02:03 pm in Remodeling Forum

We are lifting our cabin/lake home and adding a walk out level so we can get more living space. The contractor is recommending we use an ICF foundation as it will allow the lower level to be more comfortable and not damp/musty. The extra expense is approximately $8000 more than a regular foundation. We know nothing about this system and came here to research this. The cabin will mainly be used in the spring/summer/fall with minor usage around the Christmas Holiday. Is the extra expense worth it???

Started a master bath remodel in January. The project is finally finished. Got lots of great ideas from this forum. I really hated the big gray jacuzzi that took up so much space and I wanted to downsize to a soaking tub and see if we could have a walk in shower. Was successful in getting both! Here are some before and after photos although I haven't decorated yet.
