Project Spotlight: Building an ICF Castle Part 2
More to see inside the construction of an ICF castle using BuildBlock ICFs
As we’ve seen from the first video, building a comfortable home large or small with BuildBlock ICFs is possible with any design. Our look inside the castle continues upstairs as we look at the guest wing and master suite. The castle has a total of four bedrooms, three guest bedrooms and the master.The interior design was inspired by trips to a historic hotel, the homeowners wanted to create a space for their guests where they could be comfortable. Each of the guest bedrooms will have a built-in kitchenette similar to many hotels. One of the guest bedrooms also has its own custom granite fireplace and a huge walk- in linen closet. The Drew’s designed the guest wing to have the ability to be closed off when not in use, this saves even more energy.
The other end of the second floor contains the master suite. The entrance is hidden by a bookshelf door, one of the many quirky castle features. The door will blend into the rest of the bookshelves that line the hallway and opens into a Jack and Jill bathroom setup. Walk in closets lead into each luxurious bathroom which features custom granite shower bases, sinks and matching bath tub designs.
At the end of the short hallway, french doors open into the master bedroom itself. Through the bedroom is another set of pocket doors that open into the master bedroom sitting room. The sitting room features another beautiful fireplace with large windows and another small kitchenette. The homeowners think they’ll spend more of their time living upstairs when not entertaining friends and family. See more in our next feature.
