The cure for Cabin Fever:  One of the best ways to beat cabin fever is to start something new.  I suggest you start planning the cabin of your dreams.  Need some inspiration?  Check out some of these SIP-built cabins:

Cabins offer so much variety, depending on you wants and needs, the energy-efficiency of SIPs will exceed your expectations over and over again - keeping you comfortable year-round at a fraction of the cost.

With SIP construction you will be able to move in and start using your cabin more quickly.  Why?  Because of the custom fabrication we do for you.  Your panels will arrive with all the door and window rough openings pre-cut and bucked-in.  Plus, the SIP installation will take care of the framing, insulating and sheathing in one easy step, greatly reducing your construction cycle. 


Less on-site waste means less hassle for you or your builder.  Face it, cabins are generally located in remote areas...less waste, less time spent hauling it away.


Log cabins and timber frame homes built using SIPs are stronger, quieter and vastly more energy efficient than other building systems. Because structural insulated panels used for cabin roofs and timber frame walls use rigid insulation as their core they are inherently more efficient giving you less noise, lower energy bills and a more comfortable interior. Panel systems provide a dense, uniform and continuous air barrier without thermal bridging, and leave no opportunity for internal convection such as is possible with the voids left in stick framing.
