How Will Timber Work If I do Insulated Concrete Forms For The Walls?
We are currently trying to design a home and I really like the exposed timber look on the inside. How will this work out if I do Insulated Concrete Forms for the walls. Also, are there standard widths on the trusses that work better or are less expensive. I was also wondering about the pieces for the inside like the ceiling above my first floor. I can probably do standard floor joists over the basement.
Dear Mr Crawford:
Sounds like you are working on a fun project. If you have are using insulated concrete forms for the walls, you might consider doing a hybrid frame with timber trusses for the roof.
There are lots of truss design choices: http://www.vermonttimberworks.
I have copied Derek on this email as he will the point person for your project.
