Luxury home builder Cullum Homes has begun building its “Lego-like” insulated concrete structure in the Village at Silverleaf in Scottsdale, Arizona to support Special Olympics Arizona.
The isolated concrete forms of the 4,414 square meter house were created in collaboration with ICF Specalists Ltd. built and resemble multi-colored toy blocks. ICF structures are made of concrete and foam and offer high energy efficiency, sound insulation and resistance to hurricanes, earthquakes, forest fires and termites, as well as reducing air pollutants by up to 70%.
According to Cullum Homes, the Village at Silverleaf project is the first ICF single family home project ever built in Scottsdale. The house has already been sold, according to owner and founder Rod Cullum, and the Lego-like shapes will be covered with stucco and painted in the end product.
“Cullum Homes is proud to support Special Olympics Arizona, and we look forward to increasing awareness and much-needed funding for their programs here in Arizona. The Silverleaf community and its residents are very philanthropic and our unique ICF (Insulated Concrete) building block project at The Village at Silverleaf provides the perfect setting to spotlight Special Olympics and the services they offer here Arizona, ”says Cullum.
The stacking of the ICF blocks will take place over the next few weeks, and a camera on site will record the process in fast motion.
