It happens every year. Putting up crown moulding sounds easy, but how to attach it to the ceiling only and have it look decent?
I am also wondering if there is an insulation problem in my attic? Maybe not enough ventilation for the summer months? Should I have that looked into?

Comment on ICF Foundation Pros and Cons by earthworks auckland https://buildersontario.com/icf-foundation-pros-and-cons#comment-77889 Wed, 15 Jul 2020 11:51:46 +0000 http://buildersontario.com/?p=1641#comment-77889 The problem with wood-frame homes is that they have insulation gaps and thermal bridging, resulting in energy loss. ICFs are so airtight that leaks simply don’t occur. In fact, this groundbreaking study (which we like to cite quite a bit on this blog!) found that an ICF wall had 60% less energy loss than a wood-framed wall.. this is a great relief for us!! This Earthmovingandcivil.co.nz is very useful and its related to what you have actually mentioned here

Is the 5m measured from the septic bed to the wall of the pool or to the edge of the concrete around the pool?

What Is the minimum height for ICF block can I use? Footings will be 8” high.
