Follow me on:

Insulated Concrete homes in Mexico being built with Aluminum Concrete FormsIt may take years before coastal communities rebuild from the 2012 destruction of Hurricane Sandy. Research tells us that concrete buildings have the best chance of surviving hurricane-force wind and rain, but not everyone wants to live in a monolithic dome home.

Other options exist. Homes constructed with insulated concrete forms come in many shapes and sizes, and the sturdy concrete construction can withstand storm-force wind and destructive floods. Consider that many bridges are made from concrete.

Still not convinced? Take a look at the digital online Concrete Homes Magazine and consider the possibilities.
