The Project
We are in the Design Development phase, exploring SIPs and other options. Particularly as relates to the curved overhang. We used SketchUp 2018 for early Design Development and have migrated into Rhino 6 for more accurate details and Construction Documentation.

Do You Know SIPs?
If you have experience with a SIPs building, I'd love to chat with you about it. I've never worked with SIPs and am strongly concidering it for this project.
