        Absolutely – ‘Does Not Care’, they are only worried about their ability to get the house up and on to the next one. If
        Governing agency allows it, they will build it. No Conscience – No Accountability. Two major traits of a Serial Killer.

Get the IRS involved new federal tax credits for residential energy efficiency Energy Efficient Homes

Under the provision for energy efficient homes, an eligible contractor who constructs a qualified new energy
efficient home may qualify for a credit of up to $2,000. The credit is available for all new homes, including
manufactured homes constructed in accordance with the Federal Manufactured Homes Construction and
Safety Standards.
The home qualifies for the credit if:
       •It is located in the United States;
       •Its construction is substantially completed after August 8, 2005;
       •It meets the statutory energy saving requirements, and
       •It is acquired from the eligible contractor after December 31, 2005, and before January 1, 2009, for
       use as a residence.
In general, to meet the energy saving requirements, a home must be certified to provide a level of heating
and cooling energy consumption that is at least 30 to 50 percent in the case of manufactured homes, and 50
percent for other homes below that of a comparable home constructed in accordance with the standards of
the 2004 Supplement to the 2003 International Energy Conservation Code. It must also have building
envelope component improvements providing a level of heating and cooling energy consumption that is at
least 10 percent below that of a comparable home.

         The All Wall System performs up to 75% better than code built homes.

        •Ken Fonorrow, www.FloridaHERO.com
They prepared the following report:

Two Gainesville, FL builder case studies are presented that detail the critical
elements of a systems engineering process that has resulted in increased sales and
fewer callbacks for several builders. Additional benefits these builders realized
include:

    •enhanced customer satisfaction through improved comfort,
    •improved indoor air quality and
    •lower operating costs.

             Each of these builders chose to improve the performance and marketability
                                           of their homes.

                        Explanation of Chart:
           Why has ‘All Wall’ and ICF methods of construction proven superior to
             the standard methods of construction?


                 1. Sealed Envelope because of continuous poured concrete.

                 2. The concept of keeping the temperature that is outside outside
                    and controlling the temperature inside. The FOAM makes this
                    happen.
On an All Wall Eco-Home we foam under the plywood of the roof. MAJOR BENEFIT!
                 3. The air conditioning ducts have zero leakage to the outside air
                    and they are in air that is only about 7 deg higher than the
                    house is maintained.


Notice that the R-Value (a myth) is not mentioned here because of it’s minimum level of significance.
R-Value is a marketing tools for hollow wall construction, does not apply to mass walls, to any beneficial degree,
and very Misleading to the PUBLIC.
  Why is the ‘All Wall System’
method of construction superior to
     it’s closest competitor?
More usable interior space.
5,000 SF home yields greater than 95 SF MORE Interior Area
Non-Combustible and Non-Flammable
    exterior load bearing walls.
 ICF’s, Wood Framing, and Concrete Blocks use drywall boards on the interior.
More MOLD resistant because the
 concrete board is the most mold
  resistant material to use, as is
            concrete.

          ICF’s, Wood Framing, and Concrete Blocks use
   drywall boards which suck up and hold water for mold to grow.
More pest and termite resistant:

ICF’s use drywall boards and foam exposed – pests can burrow a nice
home.
Wood and Concrete Blocks use wood, insulation and drywall that pests can
burrow a nice home.
 Easier to have plans drawn and approved.
                 The concrete exceeds all ACI codes and
            the light gage steel exceeds all LGSEA codes.


All Wall is code compliant for any home and incorporates columns and stand
    alone beams. All of which exceed the strength of any other method of
construction including concrete lintels, which are typical of block construction.
         Easier to install.
1.   Entry Level Employees
2.   Less costly bracing
3.   Faster to erect and fill, less labor costs
4.   Faster removal of any forming, such as corners,
     and clean up
Zero Site waste
Better resistance to street noise.

   The harder exterior bounces sounds off, then foam absorbs.
