    Hello:

    We have a project that has ICF (Insulated Concrete Form) walls.  They have a high R-value (R-25) as well as the concrete mass and I was going to make a custom wall assembly in the wall assembly library by editing the concrete wall w/R-13 option.

    When I try to do this it seems I can’t really edit it, it’s also not accurate because the added interior insulation is not wood, there is no wood in the assembly.  It’s EPS (I think) foam on the inside and outside with the concrete sandwiched in between.

    Any suggestions or guidance on how to correctly model this is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!
