What do these places have in common? Members of the DLM team have traveled there to help with building projects over the last fifteen years. In May of this year David Millsaps traveled to Alaska with fourteen others to assist in the rebuilding taking place after the Sockeye wildfire which occurred in 2015. More than 7200 acres and 55 homes and other structures were burned.
This year David led the work to rebuild the home of a father with three teen sons. The foundation was already in place when the team arrived. The construction method used for their home is a little different from what we usually see in this area.
They used structural insulated panels (SIPs): a building system made upÂ of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, usually OSB or plywood. This makes for a very well insulated abode, an important consideration in Alaska!
There is always a need for skilled and support team members, and if you are interested in learning more about being part of such a team, take a look here or call the office.
