SIPS & Timber Framing - A Perfect Match

In this episode, you'll learn more about why Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) are a great fit for a Timber Framed house.The house in the video is built with Douglas Fir architectural timbers from Pacific Northwest, which are both strong and beautiful. You can also see the ceiling is also built with Douglas Fir panels. Since the timber frame is doing all of the structural work, the SIPs panels only have to serve as insulation. This is another great way to achieve an airtight roof system and you will still have a conditioned attic with no additional insulation needed," another plus when your goal is to build a highly efficient home. Check out the full video to see the SIPs and Timber framing work together.
