2 noteworthy single-family homes over 3,000 sq. ft.: 2017 Building Excellence Awards entries by Extreme Panel Technologies

from SIPA

Madagan Residence
Spirit Lake, IA


This was the contractor's first house with SIPs, and he's so impressed with the system he plans to do many more. The builder wanted all vaulted areas to be open with visible timbers, a feat that a simple truss system could not do. Even with the expansive open area vaults, the owners are able to heat the entire home with only two fireplaces even when the temperatures reach zero degrees outside. SIPs used in this project were manufactured by SIPA member Extreme Panel Technologies.

Total conditioned space: 3,400 sq. ft.
Walls are constructed with 6.5" SIPs
Roof is constructed with 12.25 SIPs

HERS index: 41
Blower door test: 0.62 ACH @ 50 PA

Phenning Residence
Leavenworth, WA


SIPs manufactured by SIPA member Extreme Panel Technologies facilitated a complete installation of all exterior walls and roof in only two short weeks. This was not a simple build as the design required the home to be set deep into a hill. Two autonomous foundations were constructed at two levels with an 18-foot vertical separation between them connected by a bridge. The SIP roof and use of some significant glulams perfectly addressed the extreme snow load requirements on both the shed roof and the bridge.

Total conditioned space: 3,250 sq. ft.
Walls are constructed with 6.5" SIPs
Roof is constructed with 12.25 SIPs

HERS index: 55
Blower door test: 1.3 ACH @ 50 PA
