- Part 1: Building Walls With Structural Insulated Panels
- Part 2: Tour of the Premier Building Systems Factory
- Bob tours the Premier Building Systems plant with general manager Steve Thompson. This is the plant where the structural insulated panels for this project have been made.
There are several layers and materials used in the construction of the SIPs-- oriented strand board, expanded polystyrene, and glue. Each panel is cut from the templates provided by the contractor. Heated wires are used to quickly cut through the polystyrene, then OSB plates are attached.
