Nick and Mark talk about using Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), SIPs are high performance thermally efficient composite panels which consist of a sandwich of two layers of structural board with an insulating layer of foam in between for walls, roofs and floors in new residential and commercial buildings.

(SIPs) have become a widely used alternative construction material for homes and other buildings. While many types of Composite Panel building systems have been developed, SIPs now usually refers to panels made from a thick layer of foam (polystyrene or polyurethane) sandwiched between two layers of Oriented Strand Board (OSB). The result is an engineered panel that provides structural framing, insulation, and exterior sheathing in a solid, one-piece component.

They discuss:
