08 May Watch: Oak Grove SIPs Installation Timelapse
Watch the Timelapse of the Griffin Home SIPs panels install in just 3 days!
One of the features that allows Acre to streamline construction and maximize energy performance is the use of SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels) for walls and roof. Unlike traditional stick framing, SIPs provide a super-insulated building shell with no thermal breaks or air leaks. SIPs arrive pre-engineered, with all door and window openings prepared, so you can have a dried-in structure in just 2 to 3 days. On this particular home, we estimate that SIPs saved roughly 3 weeks.
Thanks to Fernando for putting this time-lapse together. Unfortunately, day 3 was a little too cold and snowy for our Brazilian camera man, but we’ll be sharing more progress shots soon!
