Structural Insulated Panel (SIPS) in ACTION!

By
Real Estate Agent with John L. Scott Real Estate

Today was a special class on SIPS It was well attended with 45 people. Builders, architects, and myself. I was the only Realtor® An engineer presented the class in Power Point presentation...in an engineer sort of way. The interest level is high and the learning curve is growing shorter.

I helped bridge some of the communication from engineer language to builder language and point out the necessity of third party verification to certify these homes for the tax incentives and rebate opportunities.

Being well versed in this green language is an important and strategic opportunity for where the future of building is headed. I intend to be on the leading edge. How about you?

 If you are interested you can see Actual application of this SIP panel can be seen on a short youtube video at:

Don, it's great that you are continually getting educated.  What's even better is that you are bringing it down to a level that the average consumer can understand.  Sometimes, those who know about Green, talk in terms that are hard to understand.  Good thing Oregon has someone that knows what they are talking about!

That's great that you are there to help bridge that gap - and great for your business that you are on the front line here. I'm personally intrigued by SIPs and am thinking of using them for an addition to my home.
