This family lake house project selected SIPs due its ability to complete envelope quicker by three way: structure, insulation and exterior skin. This enable other trades to start earlier than anticipated. 

This project was designed with clean horizontal lines, with a touch of Frank Lloyd Wright. Many cantilevered porches, roof etc.
