We're hoping we'll finally get the footings in the ground after Thanksgiving for a new 10,000 sq ft ICF home. My partner and I were hired by a big commercial roofer to build his new home, and then expand his business to include GC'ing while specializing in ICF homes. My partner is the owners son-in-law, who has been working for him for a number of years, but hates roofing, so he's giving him the opportunity to do what he really enjoys, which is new construction home building, and ICF. They hired me on as his partner, since I have more knowledge on the interior finish end of things, and he has more knowledge on the framing end of things. Once I figure out how to get the drawing files small enough to post, i'll get them and some pictures posted of where things are at, and what we're hoping to end up with. I'll try to keep updating this throughout the project.

Not really. That's just part of the project. I'll get some pictures posted some time this weekend. I wouldn't put this post in the painting sub forum just because there's paint involved in the project either. If there is a better place for it though, I'm open to suggestions.

Carpenters build forms, it can be ICF'S, symons panels, wood, or large scale crane set forms carpenters build them. Brick layers do masonry

There's some exterior renderings in there now. One thing to remember when looking at those drawings is they were not professionally done. I had nothing to do with them. Just what we were given to start with.

Agreed. However, remember that this isn't really a normal sized home though either, so the rooms are a little bigger than what it seems by looking at the drawings. The homeowner did purchase the plans from an architectural firm, and when they found out how much a few changes to the plans would cost, they used sketchup and redrew everything to their liking. Definitely not how I would have done it.
