The builders/homeowners have worked with Extreme Panel SIPs in the past and decided to partner with us again due to their positive experience.

Off-site pre-fabrication streamlined the construction process, which was extremely important during the winter months. It also provided a significantly warmer site for the construction crews, helping save time and money on skilled labor. The air-tight building envelope created when building with SIPs slashed regular utility expenses for the homeowners.
The whole 4500 sq. ft. house is located on a heated concrete slab at grade with concrete foundation walls. It includes an in-floor radiant heat system throughout. There are two high-efficiency LP gas furnaces in the house for backup but have never been needed due to a Central Boiler outdoor wood furnace- even in the cold MN winter.
