6th Grader uses Plasti-Fab EPS in Model Town
Each building, road and area was made entirely of scrap foam insulation donated by Plasti-Fab. The development is called Sun City or Cite de Soleil in French.
Lakeside Green Cottage Project
The blue cottage in Lakeside, Ohio, had hosted families for nearly a century, and had been the beloved summer getaway of Frank and Brenda Baker’s family for the past 15 years. So when a tree fell on the cottage in June, 2009, it crushed more than just the structure.
"SIP Home Systems was a wonderful company to work with on my recent project. I had a very tight schedule while preparing all of the materials for shipping down to my client's building site in Baja, Mexico. The SIPS arrived on time while the trucks were waiting to head South across the border.
Once the crew was in Baja there was no room for error as we were 11 hours South of the border, and 40 minutes on a dirt road outside of a tiny fishing village. After a full inventory in the snow in Lake Tahoe, CA, I verified that all of the panels were in the package. We built two structures in 23 days and all of the Insulspan SIP panels were fabricated to perfection.

The awards are given annually by the Building Systems Councils (BSC), an arm of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), and judged by a panel of industry experts.
