The Ford residence is a private residence with home office, workshop, exercise room and extensive entertaining areas, located on historic Back Creek in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. The home owners’ goal was to be energy independent. They contacted Panelwrights because of its reputation of building low-energy and off-grid structures. The homeowners were familiar with structural insulated panel (SIP) construction and wanted to work with an experienced SIP contractor.
