Residential SIP Project Winners

3 Sisters High Performance SIP House3 Sisters High Performance SIP House
Fort Worth, TX
SIP were incorporated into the project's design from the very beginning, as the owners desired the high-performance aspects derived from SIPs (extreme airtightness, great insulation and incredible strength with its reduced homeowners insurance premiums). Install went quickly, and the SIP walls and roof contributed to an extremely tight home envelope, which eventually resulted in a HERS score of 9.

Residential SIP Project Case Studies

Hollabaugh SIP HouseHollabaugh SIP House
Grand Marais, MN
Primary residence set in the beautiful woods of Grand Marais, Minnesota. We are finding the SIP construction to be superior to any home we have owned. The ease of erecting the SIPs proved helpful when the construction of our home entered the winter months. The house is well built and gives one the feeling of being in a very quiet, sturdy structure.
