Resources: What is the SIPs/timber frame connection?

from SIPA

For those of you who are wondering why discussions about timber framing and SIPs often intersect, SIPs can surround an entire timber frame, leaving all the majestic timber visible in the interior and providing an airtight barrier, according to the Timber Framers Guild website.

Also, take a look at this online article about Lisa's House, a domestic violence shelter in Lexington, Virginia, constructed using SIPs and timber framing methods by a vast consortium of volunteers, manufactures, builders, students and associations.

In the case study, SIPA Executive Director points out, “The marriage between SIPs and timber framing is a favorite among many high-end home builders because it combines SIP’s energy-efficiency, ease-of installation and thermal comfort with the handcrafted, home spun aesthetic unique to timber-framed homes.” Read the full case study here. more
