The framers have the walls on the second floor 90% complete. The panels are so solid. There was no bracing and the panels hardly moved. Every time I go the site, I don’t want to leave because I’m so impressed and happy my home is built with the panels.
My husband and I built our new home
with Thermapan SIPs and have now lived in it for about a year
and a half.
There is no question that this house
is easier to heat than our old one. Both houses are heated
with natural gas, however, our new SIP home has twice the
living space as our old one. From our natural gas bills we
were able to calculate that it takes only half the amount
of natural gas to heat our new SIP home as compared to our
old conventionally built home.
So, we are now heating twice
as much living space for half of the cost. You can’t
Also, we find that this house is far
cozier than our old drafty house.
Now, whenever I drive by a new house,
being built the old fashioned way, I can’t help but
feel sorry for the unfortunate people who will live in it
and wonder why they didn’t use Thermapan SIPs.

We have been in our new home for
almost a year now. Our utilities for heat and hydro
have been cut in half. We thoroughly enjoy our SIP
basement as well - no musty concrete smell or odours. It's
a very comfortable
feeling with no humidity either.
We can't say enough about
how happy we are in our home. If we ever build again, it
will be a Thermapan home!
