Michigan SIP Panel addition for Michigan builder’s personal home using RAY-CORE Structural Insulated Panels – Builder Ross Menhart, of RossMan Construction, added onto his home using RAY-CORE SIP Panels. He took this 1860 Michigan home and brought it into the 21st century, utilizing eco-friendly technology, green building materials and energy saving solutions. RAY-CORE’s SIP Panel Wall and Roof Systems were integral in accomplishing Ross’s conservation goals. Follow his project below.
Believing that every great structure begins with a good foundation, builder / homeowner Menhart started with a Superior Walls precast concrete insulated foundation by Great Lakes Superior Walls, the perfect addition to a RAY-CORE Structural Insulated Panel home!
It’s all in the details… installing insulated rim joist.
Bond Insulation – Menhart offset his bond joist so he could apply an additional layer of foil faced foam to the outside. This offset allowed for a R-19.5 max and a R-6.5 min on the rim joist.
Menhart and helper easily slip the lightweight RAY-CORE SIPs wall into place.
SIP Panel Walls Top to Bottom.
Raising up a new generation to energy conscious and innovative building solutions such as RAY-CORE SIP panels.
Sealing it All Up Tight! Menhart filled in between the rafters with additional SIP Panel, cutoffs and waste, taping all seams and foaming all voids, seams and penetrations.
