How did SIP construction help you get this job?
It is a timber frame home. A large portion of the structure is open construction with no attic. SIPS were incorporated into the design and were mandated by the owner.

SIP wall thickness and core material: 6"
SIP roof thickness and core material: 10"
Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
Use of SIPS expedited the building process in an environment of short construction windows and challenging weather constraint

Blower door test results:
Leakage rate in Air Changes per hour = 1.4. The blower door test was performed prior to the installation of sheet rock.

Describe the HVAC system used on the project:
Water to water geothermal closed loop ground source heat pump which was coefficient with a performance of 5.7. The system heats/cools the house, swimming pool and domestic hot water. Radiant flooring is the primary source of heat. A hear recovery ventilation (HRV) system is employed with a heat recovery efficiency of 87%

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:
Spray foam insulation was applied throughout the house to achieve R-values required by code and to minimize air leakage. Windows have a U-factor of 0.28.

Please list any energy-efficient products or design features, such as lighting, hot water heating, appliances, passive solar:
This residence used 100% LED lighting and has geothermal source hot water (domestic)

Any additional comments on the project:
This hone is a wonderful, warm, quiet, inviting place and is pleasing to the eye.
