Why SIPs: The owner wanted a sustainable energy efficient house and SIPs exceeded making this happen. The architect was also on board with the SIPS and helping to bring SIP construction into the build.

The owner and architect wanted a clean, clear-span look without seeing multiple beams holding up the roof structure. SIPS helped to achieve clean roof spans with the help of the innovative design by the engineer and builder.
HVAC: The overall HVAC is a forced air design and it was downsized by 65% due to the energy efficiency of the SIP construction
