ICF meat locker! Yes, it's that energy efficient. Like a huge insulated cooler / ice chest.
Thanks Rail 19

Rail 19 is with Sylvester Quality Meats.

The ICF's (insulated concrete forms) are going up. Insulated Concrete Buildings . Texas ICF . Custom Concrete Homes have been busy in this Texas heat. Look at the size of that cooler! You'll appreciate the tenderness and flavor of aged beef. Let Rail 19 hang your meat. Coming soon!

Janice, Karla and I were about 1 mile east of Eustace Texas, headed east, on 175 when I took this video.

Any exterior or any interior finish. Stone, or Logs, Brick, HardiBoard siding, Stucco. You name your siding! Imagine Extreme Insulation of a Log-sided home!

WALLS that DON'T BREATHE: (no-flex)
The wooden or stick-built roof would usually be one of the weakest parts of a home. The main reason that most customers choose a wooden structure for roof is usually THE COST doesn't fit into their budget for a concrete roof. We do concrete roofs too. We can span a roof or next-story floor up to 40 feet without any vertical supports underneath using an engineered product called InsulDeck. Search that name and you'll see how it works.

In the... wind tunnel tests that we've seen it seems that the roof structure has a tendency to fail many times, when the walls flex and expand and contract, as if it were breathing in the high-winds in a tornado, storm, or hurricane. In an ICF Concrete structure where the walls are a single - monolithic pour of concrete, the walls don't move or breathe (expand and contract) at all.

I'm not saying the roof won't come off during an extreme storm, This is God's world and I'm just living in it.
I'm just saying that with ICF walls it is less likely, and with a concrete roof that is poured (single-concrete) into walls as "one box-like" structure, it's even more safe in a storm.

In Wind-Tunnel testing, Haydite or CMU blocks FAIL. Commonly at the mortar and roof connections.
- SIngle-Pour (monolithic) ICF equals STRENGTH, not comparative to haydite blocks. - Insulated Concrete Forms

BASEMENTS are WATERPROOF & DAMPPROOF with TEXAS ICF using NUDURA waterproof membrane: Dry and comfortable.

Concrete alone is not enough. ICF Insulated Concrete Forms use a CONCRETE mass in the center, Expanded Polystyrene EPS FOAM insulating both sides of the concrete, WATERPROOF MEMBRANE exterior, then DIMPLED MEMBRANE outside of that, with separation from the backfill. A French Drain below typically allows water to drain away from the foundation.

WATERPROOF MEMBRANE: ...

Post-Tension - (cables seen here) ENGINEERED FOUNDATION
What does post tension do?

When a concrete slab is stressed by the post-tensioning method, it means the steel is being tensioned and the concrete is being compressed. Compression is a force that squeezes or crushes, and tension is a force that pulls something apart. As a building material, concrete is very strong in compression but relatively weak in tension. Steel is very strong in tension. Putting a concrete slab into ...compression and the steel into tension before any substantial service loads are applied puts both building materials into their strongest states. The result is a stiffer concrete slab that actively is compressed and has more capacity to resist tensile forces.
