Satisfaction, Camaraderie, Honesty: Lee Bergum educates us on Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)
SIPs are just one of many building systems available when deciding how to build a home.
When it comes to building a house, for many people not much has changed in a few hundred years. Lumber is still delivered to a job site and then the home is assembled one piece of wood as a time until completion.
With this method, the wood is exposed to all of nature's elements: wind, rain, snow, etc. The job site is also more exposed to vandalism and theft.
Off-site building solutions ensure that the components which build your home are not exposed to the elements and are, instead, built in climate controlled construction facilities and then assembled on your job site in a fraction of the total time.
In this episode, Lee educates us on Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) and the options they deliver to home owners and home builders alike.
My favorite was the idea of "continuous studs". I could throw away my stud finder and hang things wherever I wanted!
