Second Floor Time Lapse

Posted on

Another funky tune sets the stage for the Second floor time lapse of the build.

You can see how the windows use a smaller MgO Panel, and then a traditional header.  We follow up later and but a foam backer on it and seal it.

The Interior shots of the home are renders that we made.

Cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms are now installed and it is bringing the house together.

We will post some interior shots soon, looking good.  Nice bright open plan on the main, great

for entertaining.

Using SIPs to Construct Energy Efficient Homes

Posted on

There are several options to choose from when building for energy efficiency.

  • Double Walls
  • Spray Foam
  • Insulated Concrete Forms
  • Structural Insulated Panels or SIPs

Each method has it’s pros and cons.  We chose SIPs for these reasons.

  1. Tight building envelope
  2. High R Value for it’s thickness
  3. Simple Construction Method
  4. Speed of Install
  5. Zero flame spread – will not ignite or burn
  6. Does not mold or mildew
  7. Clean Construction with little waste factor
  8. They helped us stay within our budget

Here are a couple of short Videos showing how to Install.
