Anyone here built or in the process of building with SIPs?

I've been doing a lot of reading on structurally insulated panels and I'm very interested in them for a number of reasons-energy is a big part of it, but the supposed ease and speed of building with them appeals to me as well. I'd like to do a log style home with log siding and false corners so that the home has the look of log but the energy efficiency of SIPs. I'd love to look at some websites, blogs, etc...that go through the construction process. Any ideas?

never worked with them myself. Have met a couple guys that have. The one thing to they told me; repairing them, whether it be from a tree falling on the house, a car running into your house, or repair due to water leakage or such is difficult. Because it is a "panel" built as a panel, damage to the overlayment is difficult.

at least that is what they told me.

they raved about the ease and speed of building with them though.
