Here is a little WarmForm installation for a small A-Frame cabin being built in upstate NY this summer. WarmForm is the ideal foundation system for small vacation cabins like this because it eliminates the digging and trenching for frost depth footings, and allows the foundation to be installed rapidly.
A WarmFörm customer in Colorado shares their progress midway through their layout of PH6 profile for their house and PH4 profile for their garage. Its worth noting the 4″ step down to the garage forms you can see in the photo. They’ve done this to depress the garage slab from the house slab which was […]
An article in the April 2020 issue of Dwell by Grace Miller features a contemporary home built in upstate NY using the WarmFörm foundation system. The architect of this home returned to specify WarmFörm on a second project the following year – one of our earliest repeat specifiers.

On the fourth of July holiday weekend I followed our WarmFörm order out to the construction site in Eastern Washington State to witness, advise, and photograph the installation. Right now we are spending a non-trivial amount of time making sure our customers understand the configuration of their WarmFörm installation, and laying the ground work […]
