SIPs at the Site

Posted from: MD, USA

Nearly a solid week of rain, luckily after backfilling was essentially complete, has slowed us down for the moment. These are pictures I took last week at the site before the rains began. You can see the first lot of SIPs laid out ready to go up. The film strips show the workmen carefully applying the sealant to one of the bottom plates before installation,

and then setting the plate in place.

The last picture shows the plate in place and with one-part foam insulation at all gaps.

A SIP panel with a 1-1/2” recess in the bottom will now go down on the plate, with its OSB sides anchored to the side of the plate. A bed of one-part foam insulation will be sprayed onto the top of the plate just prior to setting the panel.
