Describe the end use of the building:
This is the primary residence of the Pearson Family. The home sits beautifully on the side of a hill overlooking Big Stone Lake and their AirBNB rental called, "The Shed at Stone Ridge".

How did SIP construction help you get this job?
The modern design of the home was a perfect match for SIP construction. The owner, a do-it-yourselfer and electrician, wanted to build with a system he could handle with minimal help. They are located in an open area, and wanted a home that would be air-tight and well insulated.

SIP wall thickness and core material:
6” wall panels with 8” panels on the North facing wall – EPS insulating foam

SIP roof thickness and core material:
10” roof panels – EPS insulating foam

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
The owner, Pete Pearson, stated, "The speed of construction was amazing! We could have never done this home if we would have stick framed it."

Describe any innovative design elements or structural engineering involved:
The use of Jumbo 8' x 24' roof panels over glue-lam timbers

Describe any other energy-saving materials used in the building envelope other than SIPs. List U-values of windows used and the U or R-value of any insulation materials. (judged only for High Performance Category)
The lower level is heated with in-floor heat. The main part of the home is a 90% energy efficient forced air system.

Any additional comments on the project:
The Pearson's were impressed the ease of construction and the overall experience of building with SIPs. They are considering using SIPs on future additions/buildings at "The Shed at Stone Ridge."
