If you are planning to build with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), I highly suggest you attend the two-day owner-builder SIPs school that is taught by Al Cobb in Shepherdstown, WV.

Here is a link to the site: sipschool.org

I just attended the 2-day (class 201) owner-builder SIPs workshop that was held June 15 & 16. I learned more about SIPs in those two days than I have in the past two years of reading and researching.

Previous to attending this school, I had been working on getting bids and I found that it was like comparing apples to oranges. In the first morning of the class, Al had me up to the point where I could understand what was being sold by the different companies.
 
Al has been involved with SIPs building for the past 18 years and has designed many of the tools currently used in SIPs installation. Al is also a member and is on the board of directors of the Structural Insulated Panel Association (SIPA).

The class is taught in an UNBIASED format. Al knows his stuff when it comes to SIPs and he tells it like it is. He does not recommend one company or one type of SIPs over another. He presents the facts in an understandable format and lets you make the decisions.

It's obvious from the start that Al knows what he is talking about. There is never any hesitation when he is asked a question. If someone brought up a question, he almost always had the answer and could give you a reference. If he didn't have the answer (which was almost never) he was honest and quick enough to admit it.

The handout for the school was exceptional. There were lots of photos and diagrams and plenty of space to make your own notes. This was probably the best handout that I have ever received at any seminar (building or non-building) that I have attended.

The class was held in a very nice facility and a great lunch was provided for both days. Al also included a tour of his workshop on the second day and showed us many of the types of SIPs available plus most of the tools used to install SIPs.

I give this class an 11 out of a possible 10! There was not one bad thing I could say about this class and the staff.

I definitely feel that I got much more than I expected from this class.

Jack
