SIP Homes

Are you thinking that a log home is just not the right choice for you? Do not worry! We are also experts at building high efficiency structural insulated panel homes (aka SIP homes). SIPs are often a preferable choice over traditional stick homes for many reasons. SIPs are extremely energy efficient, so you’ll save big on heating and cooling your home. SIPs are also more durable, resilient, and stronger than standard stick built homes. If you’re interested in what SIPs and Big Twig Homes can do for you, just get in touch. We’re happy to support you in making the best choice for your needs.

Stick Built Homes

Stick built homes use a traditional construction type where “sticks”, or wooden boards like 2×4’s are used to construct a home. We can help you determine if a stick built home is your best choice, and contrast the benefits with our SIP homes. Contact us if you are interested in learning more about Big Twig Homes and Stick construction.

Big Twig Homes is your source for getting your dream home built. We will be glad to help you with your choice of cedar log homes, stick built homes and the exciting new SIP homes.

What’s so special about Cedar?

Our northern white cedar protects your log home’s interior against heat and cold better than any other type of commonly used wood. Many other builders use pine logs. Traditional pine logs have 2.5 times more water content than Cedar logs. The large amount of moisture in pine can lead to a number of problems like cracking, splitting, shrinkage, setting, air seepage and rot after your home is built.

  • Highest degree of energy efficiency
  • Decay and rot resistant
  • 8 times longer life than pine
  • Natually insect repellent
  • Weighs 20% less than pine
