Hello everyone.  I've been a lurker for a few months now, reading all the wonderful information about ownerbuilding on this site.  I currently live in Round Rock, Texas and hope to owner build a custom home around that area.  Currently, I'm educating myself on the different construction materials/methods that are available for home building.  I've been especially impressed with SIPs and the benefits it has for energy effeciency, speed of erection and creating a tight healthy home environment.  From reading other posts, it appears that many have shied away from this method due to a higher than expected cost as well as having difficulty in finding subs to help erect the walls (although, it appears that the process is fairly easy and one could do this themselves).  I wanted to post several question to y'all fellow Texas regarding SIPs:

Has anyone successfully built or is building a home using Sips in the Austin and surrounding areas (Round Rock, Georgetown, Leander, etc)?  If so, would you mind sharing your experience?...what architect/designer did you use for your plans?....did you put the SIPs up yourself or did you have a sub do it?....which panel company did you go with?

I appreciate any info that you can pass along.

Bob, I've been looking for info on building a SIP home in East Texas for some time now and recently found a website that yielded what seems to be the best contact, so far.  The website is  www.sips.org   Go to the 'find a SIPA member' feature and click on Texas.  It provides a list of members in Tx, with some in Ark and some in NM and OK.    I connected with Larry Nelson of  Thermalshell Homes in Houston.  He seems to be a wealth of information and says he's built with SIPS for over 20 years and can do it all, order materials, consult, provide skilled labor if needed, or do a turnkey job. He also has an experienced designer that does his work for him with SIPS. So, you might give him a call. Go to his website at www.thermalshellhomes.com    Good luck!

Patti
