Imitation timber and sips construction
« on: April 23, 2020, 12:51:10 AM »
I've been browsing this forum lately and have seen some posts similar to what I'm asking but not quite the same.
Has anyone built or has tips on building an imitation timber frame sips building? I was thinking maybe 12x12 using 4x* to make the timber frame then adhere rigid foam to sheet of osb and sheet of plywood and just use that to skin like you would a timber frame building? Also what glue would you use for the foam to wood bond?
I see people mention being hard to transport the fake sips but the idea would be to glue them on site

You can't really make a SIP on site, in other words you can't create the "structural" part of that. I've done what is called "wrap and strap". The frame is structural and then the insulation wraps that and has strapping boards to which sheathing and siding are attached to. Nothing is glued, the strapping is mechanically fastened through the strapping to the interior frame.
