    Wow, that is exactly what I need to do. Are the SIP’s pretty efficient, and seal off the house well? Any idea of what a foundation that size cost?

      Hi Mike – you really need to contact the company for those type of questions as prices are different everywhere. I’m sure they could give you some guidance on where to start…Kent

    You can take a class there, where they teach you how to build your own house. I took one 30 years ago, and am building one now, 30 years later!

      I have posted all the pictures available, interior and exterior. You could contact the company and see if they have more.
