house built with structured insulated panels

SIPS (structurally insulated panels) offer great alternative way to build. They offer highly insulated building envelopes with fast and air tight assembly’s. SIPS are growing in popularity and can be a great solution for cold climates due to their insulating attributes.

While there are questions on the affordability of sips. The article “What are Structural Insulated Panel” explains the benefits and the cost. http://www.self-build.co.uk, “Although it might look as though it is an expensive way to build, there are savings. As the house can go up in a matter of days, fewer tradespeople are needed and for a much shorter time than with a conventional build. A four-bedroom house can be erected and weatherproof in a minimum of five days. There is also less waste (you only get the materials you need) and mess to clear and dispose of.”
