The Perfect Fit
Home > Project Profiles > The Perfect Fit
When SIPS must fit and time is of the essence, you can trust Insulspan® to get the job done right.
This beautiful timber frame and SIPS home is located in the “Village by the Bay,” Lake Chelan in Manson, Washington. Manson is a small community that embraces a slower pace of life, great fishing, swimming, and other exciting summer and winter activities.
The home’s owner, Charles Higgins, trusted the Insulspan reputation when selecting a SIPs supplier.
“Insulspan has the reputation for producing panels that fit and require no on site rework,” said Higgins. “I visited many SIP projects in the area and the sites were littered with panel parts that had to be chainsawed onsite because the panels did not fit properly. Insulspan uses 3D Cad tools to ensure the design is right before the shop drawings are produced. I had the designer leave 5/8″ between the timberframe and the SIPs so I could install drywall before the panels went on. It worked great saving many messy hours later.”
The real benefit to Insulspan SIPs is that any house can be converted from a conventional stick frame form into an energy efficient SIP envelope. To do this, architectural blueprints are converted into technical layout drawings that can be input into our automated cutting system.
The panels are then precision pre-cut to exact design specifications allowing for them to arrive on site in ready-to-assemble form. This speeds up the installation process immensely.
A few pictures say it all, as it only took three days for a complex 3,700-square-foot roof said Higgins.
The final benefit to choosing Insulspan in Charles Higgins’ project was Insulspan’s dedication to customer service.
“The staff has been great. It is a very unusual house for a SIP/timber frame, and it fit perfectly. They worked with me all the way.”
