Design Basics worked with Fox Blocks® to adapt a group of home plans for use with Fox Blocks Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF). Fox Blocks’ ICF offer many advantages to traditional block or poured foundations and wall framing.
Fox Blocks ICF wall systems offer a high-quality, construction friendly block design at a lower price. It gives you all the benefits of a traditional ICF block — energy efficiency, durability, safety, cost savings, and comfort — with special features that make it a better value.
Fox Blocks uniquely clever design helps speed construction with
- Easy-to-use reversible, pre-assembled blocks
- Exceptionally strong ties
- Special corner brackets for additional strength and easy application of veneer finishes
45-Degree Angle Block
Corbel Ledge Block
90-Degree Corner Block
Our name says it all. The fox was chosen because it is a very clever animal that is well-adapted to both the coldest and hottest extremes. Like Fox Blocks’ ICF, the arctic fox is well-suited for some of the coldest environments while the desert fox lives comfortably in the searing heat of the desert.
Like the fox, Fox Blocks is the design that outsmarts the others — clever, environmentally-friendly, quick, and adaptable to even the most extreme conditions.
Fox Blocks wall systems were very easy to install since they are reversible and interlock well together. The support provided by the field staff was outstanding. Our crew plans to build several homes with Fox Blocks next year. Thanks a million!
