How did SIP construction help you get this job?
The Johnson's wanted to build an energy efficient home. They were considering building with ICF's, but were having a difficult time finding a builder that could do a build with ICF's that would fit their budget. We were able to do a build with SIPs that fit their budget.

SIP wall thickness and core material: 6 1/2"

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
We built a very energy efficient, comfortable and durable home.
