Africa is hot all year round and a lot of people can barely survive the constant heat, even at night time houses are extremely hot.

My project technology uses insulated foams that will be used to build houses in West Africa. However, l need to build a model home with the technology to show the people the effect of this great technology and how it will save them a lot of money.

The technology is cool and it will cool the house with only a ceiling fan.

ICF is very effective as it will stand against hurricane and heavy storms.

ICF is good if built right and can stand against an earth quake.

ICF is sound proof. - if you live near a railroad, etc you will never have to hear the sound of the trains.

You are invited to participate in the building with me in Kasoa, Ghana.

Please find my prototype building.

My Goal is to build affordable practical homes in Africa beginning with Ghana. Houses that can be purchased between $60,000 to $90,000 US dollars and maintenance free, using energy conservation products such as Insulated Concrete Forms –ICF. This product will help to reduce the cost of air conditioner (electricity cost up to 40%) that is used to cool the homes. Practical solid homes that will give each family what they needed for shelter, adequate bedrooms, toilets and place to assemble for the family get together. A small back yard with place for planting vegetables. A bore hole that will use solar panel to pump water for household use.


What is Insulated Concrete Forms – ICF otherwise known as permanently insulated formwork (PIF) is an insulated in-situ concrete system of building that is quick to construct and offers levels of performance significantly better than is available from slower more traditional approaches to building. ICF is based on hollow lightweight block component that lock together without intermediate bedding materials such as mortar, to provide a formwork system into which concrete is poured. The block is formed of sheets of insulation materials normally expanded polystyrene tied together with plastic or steel ties or an integral web of the same insulation.
I need funds to build a single family house –bungalow 2bedroom with 1.5bathroom or 3bedroom with 2.5bathroom.


The Cost to build the model house is as follows:
 ICF walls, freight and duty to Ghana: $19,000
 Building materials:                              $12,000
 Roofing:                                              $6,000
 Labor:                                                 $8,500
 Bore whole and solar panel:               $3,500
 Total Estimated cost:                          $49,000
