Local Homebuilder – Innovative Custom Homes has taken innovation to the next level. With 38 unique home builders featured in the 2017 Boise Parade of Homes, Innovative Custom Homes has changed the way of building better homes. Female owner Heather Echevarria chose to build this particular masterpiece using Amvic’s Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs). This construction method will give the homeowner a healthier, improved way of living. ICFs are sustainable, durable, resilient and innovative. They provide improved energy efficiency, lower maintenance and operating costs and better indoor air quality. This ICF parade home is able to withstand severe weather events which is an additional benefit to the homeowner since ICFs are fire, wind, impact and seismic resistant, providing a safer home that lasts. The home has achieved a HERS Rating of 42, the lowest that this certified energy rater has done and the lowest ever achieved in the Parade of Homes. The homeowner of this particular home can also enjoy peace and quiet since ICFs offer sound attenuation. They also provide a stable temperature through all levels of the home due to the tight building envelope which eliminate air leakage and temperature fluctuations.
Another unique feature of this home with regards to ICFs is that Amvic’s Insulated concrete forms are proudly Greenguard Gold certified which means that they have met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) offering a sustainable lifestyle.
The Parade Home is also designed to please. There is approximately 2900 sq.ft of living space, 3 bedrooms with an optional space that can be used as a 4th bedroom/office/in-law suite with its own entrance. It includes 3.5 bathrooms, and a large kitchen that is open to the great room and dining area. Nestled in Meridian, Idaho, the Parade of Homes is currently open for viewing Monday to Thursday from 5pm to 8pm and Friday to Sunday 12pm to 8pm; ending May 14th.
