An alternative building system to a conventional stick built home is called SIPs. SIPs is an acronym for Structurally Insulated Panels. SIPs are made up of rigid form core insulation, laminated between two (2) layers of wood sheathing called OSB (Oriented Strand Board). SIPs replace several components of conventional building such as studs and joists, insulation, vapor barriers and air barriers. SIPs are most commonly used to build exterior walls but are also used for floor and roof systems. You can find roof installation in NYC that works with SIPs, too, which is exactly what I did for my own home.
