Case Studies

East Portlemouth Devon

This great project was in the beautiful location of East Portlemouth in Devon.

The location was challenging and fun as the access road was tidal. The client wanted a living accommodation above his existing boat house.

The team put the SIP shell up in just 7 days ready for the follow on trades. The panels used were 172mm with quite a complex barn hip and dorma roof.

4 Bed Detached House – Portreath August 2020 

The Sip Hus team put up this contemporary 4 bedroom detached in just 3 weeks!

Downstairs the clients have gone for a stunning open plan living area, plus a kids den and a utility room and that all important downstairs toilet!


Commercial Extension- Hayle, Cornwall

We were asked by the clients to build an open plan, 2 storey reception area

Our team erected the SIP structure in just 11 days. We had a few days of very bad rain but unlike wet trades that would have had to stop work we were able to continue the build and deliver on time.  Great clients and a beautiful location, who could ask for more!


Bromham, Wiltshire

This was a replacement roof/2nd floor to an existing bungalow

The roof was removed and a joist and deck was put in place. The SIP panel roof was complex with its hips, valleys ,flat roofs, dormers and cantilevered balconies. This amazing transformation of a typical bungalow took only 4 weeks!


Newquay- January 2019

5 x 1 bedroom luxury villas ,Porth Veor Manor, Newquay

The Sip Hus team completed 5 luxury villas in the grounds of Porth Veor Manor in Newquay. To help situate the buildings within their natural surroundings the villas were designed with barrelled green roofs. In order to create a curve, the roof panels were spanned horizontally and faceted then battened and lined with plywood. The step in each villa also added to the complexity of the canopy design. The living sedum roofs not only look pretty but these clever little plants store water in their leaves so need very little maintenance.
The excellent thermal performance of the panels allowed us to maximise the internal spaces within the given footprint without having to compromise on thermal efficiency.

Horton – Somerset 2019

4 bedroom detached Dorma Bungalow

This project is a 4 bedroom detached Dorma bungalow in the beautiful village of Horton. This SIP construction is a fantastic example of how SIP panel can help utilize room in the roof space.  The clients are really making the best of their space by also laying the slab over a basement! Games room? Wine cellar? Home Office?  Their options are open!

Torquay 2019

2 Storey, 4 bedroom Detached Family Home

This was a new build on the south coast near Torquay. The project was an intricate build in a very challenging location due to a steep sloping site and hugely restricted access. This meant in the design and engineering process we factored in these issues so that the insulation could be carried out quickly and safely. It was a successful project which was completed within the time frame of 4 weeks. Happy us and happy clients!

Portreath April 2019

A beautifully located 3 bedroom detached house built in 1 ½ weeks! A steep and narrow access but with the nature of this type of build this proved not to be a problem for the Sip Hus Team! A great job with fantastic clients!

Testimonial: “Karen and Mike at SIPHUS have made our first Sips Build an absolute breeze… There has been fantastic communication and updates from Day One, and even after the build was complete, they’ve still been on hand to offer advice and support with regards to the coordination of other trades.

It was a blessing not to have to worry about progress of the build as we were updated at all stages with photos and stage reports. I think the whole building was up in 7 days. Just incredible! Will be definitely using SIPHUS again, we’re already planning the next project!”

Poole, Dorset -March 2019

This build is a 4 bedroom detached property overlooking Poole harbour. It is a contemporary design with large open plan spaces. The benefits of it being a SIP structure meant that the open plan areas and large apertures could be achieved without the need of steel portal frames. The client chose the Kingspan TEK 172mm panel system for optimum insulation and airtightness. We supplied and installed an MVHR system to maximise the performance of the building. The building is clad in a lightweight render system with decorative red brick plinth.  The red brick is also used to accentuate the 2 storey curved stairwell which is a striking feature of the house. The structural shell took approx 12 days to erect in March this year and the clients moved in July! 

‘We are delighted with our SIP-Hus. It arrived on time and was speedily erected by a very professional team of workers. This meant we were then able to complete the rest of the build within six months of it arriving on site and are now enjoying the results.’ Rod and Andy

Shaftesbury, Dorset – June 2016

Woodland Grove, Bath – April 2016

In the Claverton area of Bath these two 3 storey properties will be clad in a combination of Bath stone, Ashlar and render. On a tight site the challenge was to bring both properties up together with minimal disruption to the neighbouring properties in this quiet cul de sac.

The structural shell utilised the Kingspan TEK 142mm panel system for walls and roof.

With a four man team Sip Hus completed both properties in just over five weeks.



The nature of this project is something that is growing in popularity as a way of expanding living areas within an existing property.

The brief was to remove the existing roof of the bungalow and using SIP create a room in the roof. By adding short walls front and rear and slightly reducing the roof pitch we were able to increase the first floor area to almost that of the ground floor, in effect doubling the size of the clients house.

The structural shell utilised the Kingspan TEK 142mm panel system for walls and roof and was completed in three weeks.
