How did SIP construction help you get this job?
Energy efficient shell; ease of construction.

SIP wall thickness and core material:
4-5/8" Polyurethane core (R27)

SIP roof thickness and core material:
8-1/4" EPS core (R29)

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
All of the above; using SIPs for the roof allowed for vaulted ceilings which make the home 'feel' larger than it is.

This is house #6 of 11 planned for this relatively small (3 acre) planned development. All the homes are small; oriented for winter solar gain; energy efficient construction using ICF foundations and SIPs for the walls and roofs.
