Title: SIP
Post by: Don Cheke on January 20, 2013, 07:46:11 PM
I made this render for one of my US clients who always razzes me about living in the"North". He often calls me Nanook. Like New Jersey doesn't get snow! :-)

Don,

having previously designed for properties using SIPs, I have to say that I'm a great SIPs fan.

And, I do like your design.  With a little development  these could have legs (sell like hot cakes!).  Remember Henry Ford?

Budget homes for all climates - cold or hot.  They could be mass produced and used anywhere from Alaska to the Sahara!
Ikea made a fortune with flat-packs, now is the time for curve-packs, delivered to your door and assembled in minutes/hours.

And Darrel is correct, it's f, f, f, f, freezing here in the UK.  Perhaps the cold has got to me?

Have an ice day, in your Igloo.  8)

Regards Tim

42 degrees Celsius (107.6 Fahrenheit) here in Adelaide Australia today...do your panels insulate against the heat and are they bushfire resistant as well?  We could sell them down here if they did!  ;D

Maybe we should all get together (team effort) and make this a reality. We can address all climate aspects. And if they don't sell we can each have one in our back yard as our own private man-cave.

Thanks for having a look!

BTW, I did get a response from my client. He said: "Well, you’ve got a standing job offer here in NJ – whenever you are ready to leave the insanity of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. :-)" He has asked me a least a half dozen times to come work for him full-time. If I were 25 years younger I think I would. :-)

Don

Why do you say "If I were 25 years younger I think I would."?

Is this because you wouldn't want to relocate??

Yep. I am 52 and set in my ways. Not that that is terribly old but I don't think I would have the energy to make that kind of transition. On top of that my wife has medical needs that are taken care of here at no cost and I doubt we would find the same coverage if we went to the US. And, of course, I wouldn't go without her.

Well I am 43 and catching you up Don  ;D

Yeah, I can see your point. There are many benefits of work for ourselves..... :)

Don I got you beat by 10 yrs, and if I were you I wouldn't move either. Health insureance here in the State is expensive. My wife also has health problems and I wouldn't go anywhere without her either. I think as we get older we just like to stay put. I could use that Igloo right now it's been in the single digits here the last few day. Carroll

Don - Don't even consider it. I left Joisey in 1956 and never looked back. Canadian west is god's country. When I was living in Alaska, near Fairbanks, people really did think we lived in Igloos. :o They couldn't believe we had an outdoor pool.

Nice job Don, I also like the interlocking design, as Tim said, If you could create them in a pack that would stack easily, you would sell loads especially in disaster areas.
