SIP Polyurt Larger Models

Full Circle Shelters has combined the efficient with strong circular shape and manufactured structural insulated panels (SIPs). This combination introduces a new level of comfort and efficiency into modern homebuilding.

Models range in size from 600 to 1630 square feet and use structural insulated panels (SIPís) for the walls and roof. Using SIPs the home's structural shell and insulation are completed in one easy step.

The Circular Shape Provides

- Less exterior surface area for a given floor area

- Open floorplans for comfort, convienence and accessibility

- Less wind resistance for a stronger home in adverse weather conditions

- Panoramic views, natural light and air circulation

- A natural fit into the surrounding environment

SIPs Provide

- Framing, sheathing and insulation done in one step

- Lower waste with all parts pre cut and framed

- Up to 2 1/2 times stronger than stick built homes

- LEED and Energy Star Compatible

- Less lumber use and recycled foam content insulation

Combined benefits of circular and SIPs

- Super Energy Efficiency with savings of up to 60 % on heating and cooling costs

- Quicker building process means you save money and move in sooner

- Quieter indoor environment as wind and exterior noises are greatly reduced

- Lower initial building cost allows more for upgraded features

- Reduced lifetime maintainance costs
