450 Lipan Way is a 500 square foot home addition that utilized Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). SIPs are a high performance building system that results in an extremely strong, energy efficient and tightly-sealed building envelope. SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. The panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural panels. Dependent on the project size, SIPs can decrease construction times and labor costs, as the insulation and structural panels are delivered to the site as one cohesive unit. It can also eliminate job site waste as they are manufactured off-site.
450 Lipan Way consists of a brand new master bedroom, bathroom, and walk-in closet. SIPs were used for the walls as well as the roof. The addition received an Air Source Heat Pump System for temperature heating and cooling.
