SIPs are here!


After delays of every possible kind which I can’t bear to relive by writing about them, we finally have our Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs).  SureTight delivered them this morning.  For the walls, they are 8.25 inches thick (7.375″ Neopor EPS), giving us an R-Value of 35.  For the Roof, we’ll have 12.25 inch (11.375″ Neopor EPS), giving us R-53.  These R-values are not exact due to some lumbers between the panels.

Intellistructures will begin putting up the panels on Monday.  We hope to have a dry-in shell by the end of the month.

Here are some pics.
