How did SIP construction help you get this job?
Speed of construction & energy code requirements.

SIP wall thickness and core material:
1552 sf of 6" EPS Walls

SIP roof thickness and core material:
1924 sf of 10" EPS Walls

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
SIPs provided a profound reduction in assembly time for the exterior shell of this house and detached garage. Assembly of both these structures took less than 2 weeks for 3 workers. It is likely this assembly would have taken at least 6 weeks as a stick frame, exterior shear plywood, batt insulation assembly. A rough estimate would be $15,000 savings on labor alone. SIP materials costs are higher by comparison, but time is always an advantage.

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)
FabCab major shell materials packages include energy-efficient SIPs, and windows with fir frames and exterior aluminum cladding.

Please list any sustainable materials or design features not listed above, such as recycled materials, low-VOC finishes, landscaping, etc. (judged only for High Performance Category):
The TimberCab shell package from Fab Cab also includes second growth 100% Douglas fir timbers for posts, beams, and rafters. The kit is pre-manufactured and packed flat. With assembly instructions Vashon Built successfully assembled the TimberCab home.
