How did SIP construction help you get this job?
By using SIPs as primary roof structure and insulation, we were able to achieve the exposed truss look the consumer was looking for making it a one step process, wee got the R value they needed and the look they wanted.

SIP wall thickness and core material: R-26
SIP roof thickness and core material: R-50 Neopor foam 10" panels

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
Saved time as the roof sheeting, insulation and interior finish were completed in one step. Also with Neopor core they were able to achieve the R-50 that the code required.

Exposed trusses made for an open look, very nice look for the clients.
