Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS!)
Time & Location
About the Event
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are pre-fabricated using specialized glue and intensive compression to adhere plywood to either side of the foam. This can save time and resources in lieu of framing, and in this workshop you can learn to create rooms with SIPs by joining and fastening them at the seams and floor joists.
We will come together during the day to work and learn techniques of natural building; at night we can enjoy team meals, bonding over a fire, sharing skills, stories and scents of the Northwest summer at a campground onsite at the Earth Homes headquarters.
Camping will be available and transportation to the Brier Homestead provided each day.
