How did SIP construction help you get this job?
The owners really wanted to build this with SIPs for efficiency and energy cost savings and found out we were a SIPs builder.

SIP wall thickness and core material: 6.1/2" : 7/16 OSB / 5-5/8" polystyrene / 7-16" OSB

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
SIPs are very easy to work with, helped us keep the job site clean and organized. We had less waste and only used one 30 yard dumpster for the whole project.


Blower door test results: 2.52 ACH50

Describe the HVAC system used on the project:
Radiant in-floor heating with a gas boiler, Bryant 92.1% efficiency furnace, 13 Seer air conditioner, Renewaire EV90 ERV; inter-locked with furnace.

Any additional comments on the project:

 

This was a pretty simple design, but it turned out to be a pretty nice Shouse with really nice interior finishes.
