Recent concerns about lumber prices have led some builders to explore other framing methods. Learn how two of these alternatives — structural insulated panels (SIPs) and steel frame construction — can be viable solutions to onsite stick framing.

Join us as we explore how two framing methods — structural insulated panels (SIPs) and steel frame construction — are getting fresh consideration as an alternative to onsite stick framing and an answer for home builders facing record high lumber prices. Attendees will receive an overview of each solution and hear from builders and industry professionals that have successfully integrated SIPs and steel frame construction into their home building businesses.
