The TerraHaus SIPs (structural insulated panels) have arrived and will be installed in the coming days. These SIPs will play a huge role in the thermal energy performance of our Passive House.  In this video, Matt O’Malia of GO Logic Homes — the design/build team behind the TerraHaus — tells us more about SIPs as we see the crew behind him install the panels at the GO Logic prototype house in Belfast last year.

For another great angle on the greenhouse gas impacts of various types of building insulation, you should catch Doug’s recent post over at the TerraHaus blog.
