SIP were incorporated into the project's design from the very beginning, as the owners desired the high-performance aspects derived from SIPs (extreme airtightness, great insulation and incredible strength with its reduced homeowners insurance premiums). Install went quickly, and the SIP walls and roof contributed to an extremely tight home envelope, which eventually resulted in a HERS score of 9.
