Describe the end use of the building:
This is an air tight, energy efficient, single family home.

How did SIP construction help you get this job?
The owner, Brian is a driver for North Park Delivery - he had been making deliveries to another SIPs project in Worland, and the conversation started. Impressed by what he observed, he and Chelie took a closer look at other SIP homes in the area and decided this was the best way to build. One the biggest selling points was the fact that the shell would be completed days instead of weeks. The couple completed most of the finish work themselves. They were eager to get started, and delighted that they could start their part sooner. Brian and Chelie were also conscious of the long term investment vs. upfront costs.

SIP wall thickness and core material:
6" walls with 5 1/2" EPS Foam Insulation

SIP roof thickness and core material:
10" walls with 9 1/2" EPS Foam Insulation

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
Panels were set in five to six days. The ease of setting panels made it possible for customers to help. This gave them a sense of accomplishment and early ownership.

Describe any innovative design elements or structural engineering involved:
Brian and Chelie wanted the look of a log home without the upkeep. So, log ridge beams were used on the interior along with log accents inside and out.

Describe the HVAC system used on the project:
Radiant in-floor heat was installed throughout the home. Energy efficient mini-splits were installed for cooling.

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)
Chelie only wanted usable windows where required by code. The majority of windows in the home are fixed and do not open. Her thought process is that if you are building an air-tight home why would you want to open windows. This improves the indoor air quality and reduces the amount of dust in the home.

Please list any energy-efficient products or design features, such as lighting, hot water heating, appliances, passive solar (judged only for High Performance Category:
LED lights were used throughout. The hot water heater is tied into radiant in-floor heat. Large porches help to keep house cooler in the summer.  

Any additional comments on the project:
Brian and Chelie absolutely love their home! They are also thrilled with cost to heat and cool home. Stating that it is noticeably better than they expected.
