How to wire over icf for parge/stucco


Anyone familer with how to attach wiremesh(or micro mesh needed??) to ICF forms? I need to parge/stucco over the blue skin and the top of the icf forms (white stuff). Not sure what to use to attach some wire mess? On top of the ledger board to the roof i just attach my wire with staple gun on my compressor and micro mess around the details, but im scared its not going to hold on the stryofoam icf blocks

we didn't/don't - we just apply stucco layers to icf's,,, got a question for you tho - why housewrap on icf's & whoever said to do that ? ? ? since its now wrapp'd, you'll have to mechanically attach mesh

so you'll have to staple on mesh which brings to mind ANOTHER question,,, why NOT bld the whole thing w/icf's ? ? ? unless you think energy costs'll be going down, icf's or structural insulated panels're the BEST building system imo,,, your thoughts,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Not in the budget and Im still a large fan of traditional framing. We use 2x6 construction with R20+ on the inside and 2" of rigid insulation on the outside for over R30 protection

Heh. Those are actually some of the forms from the concrete. I have to get my stucco/parging done so i can backfill property and build a nice wrap around deck and stairs
