Al's Pheasant Ranch is an up-scale pheasant hunting lodge with 20 guest rooms, and a multi-use event center with bar/recreation room, grand hall, conference room and two private commons areas.  The owners, Brady and Todd Terveen, wanted to build the most energy efficient hunting lodge possible.

SIP wall thickness and core material: 6" EPS
SIP roof thickness and core material: 12" EPS

The post and beam construction married up well with SIPs, especially in the high vaulted ceiling areas. SIPs were also a benefit by enclosing the Timber Beam structure more quickly, thus limiting the exposure of the timbers to the weather.  The lodge is oriented to take advantage of solar gain in the Winter and shade in the Summer. The straight, simple design of the lodge wings saved the owners money.


HVAC system used on the project: The main lodge is heated with Geo-thermal, radiant in-floor heat and Geo-thermal forced air with four HRV units. Amana high-efficiency PTAC units were used in the 20 guest rooms.

Andersen 400 series windows with U-value of .27 were used throughout. The breeze-way joining the main lodge and wings were insulated with spray foam. The main lodge and guest room wings are 100% SIP enclosures.  The entire building utilizes LED lighting. Water is heated with Marathon 110 gallon hot water heaters. Three phase appliances were used.  Reclaimed barn wood and reclaimed galvanized steel was used for interior finishes. The hunting lodge is located on over 6,000 acres of preserved pheasant hunting habitat, featuring native prairie land, tree belts, food plots and CRP grasses.
