What are SIPS?

SIPs (Structural Insulated Panel System) are a wonderful invention that has changed the face of the log and timber frame industry. They have been developed to do several very important things for these types of homes. First, they are unmatched in energy ratings! We can easily achieve R-values three times greater than that of a conventional home if required. Second, they have astounding structural qualities that give you greater flexibility with your design. Third, SIPS are fast! They arrive with your package and are normally installed in a couple days. In one pass you get interior framing, insulation, and the roof sheeting. On walls there is no need for studs or headers. When they are installed, you are prepped for the interior finishes..
