Been a believer in SIPs since being introduced to them, Pre-engineering is great. Ease of installation, air tightness, less sealing that conventional framing. Saved times, roof panels enabled this project to get closed in faster, less utility costs during build. With this home being on Lake Superior's North Shore, Energy efficiency as well as air tightness were attributing factors.
