Last Look At Prefab Zero Energy House Kit Before Framing

prefab house kit
SIP prefab houseI headed for the hills mid-week to take a last look at the prefab house kit before interior framing begins. I admit I fear I might miss the look of the structural insulated panels (SIP)! You might have seen in the previous post my aunt left the particle board "as is" in her own gorgeous home (3rd video down in the post), and I find it appealing.

If we hadn't already found the gorgeous, recycled VMI floorboards to reuse in our interior, along with other recycled finds, I would be seriously considering just painting the SIPs on the inside and calling it a day.



Here's a video of a last walk through the wide open / no interior SIPs prefab house kit:
(I'm sure it will take awhile to download, I tend to go on and on a bit...



Once interior walls are built, the off grid energy efficient systems will be installed: solar energy and heat, rainwater collection and filtration, and more. I guess I will no longer say I'll be "camping" in the house kit... : )
Instead, we'll simply be off grid, zero energy, prefab-ulously done.

Will you be having any sort of open house? My wife and I are planning a similar "expedition" and would love to see a SIPs home before it is hidden behind finished walls.

You're welcome to see it up close & personal- but would have to hurry down because Ron starts framing this week! There's also plenty of pictures of the raw SIPs in the previous posts, and in the videos... but as of next week the interior framing begins.

P.s. We *will* have an Open House in September but it will certainly have progressed in the finishing of the prefab modern house kit.
