    R-11 walls and R-15 roof. Definately not for me. They would never pass building codes for Montana or Wyoming.

    Those certainly look like they have some possibilities.

    I would caution that a crane is probably needed to set the panels into position possibly at great cost per hour.

    Since they are panel construction the wiring might be a chore unless chases are precut. Plumbing might also.

    I live in a doublewide - Talk to them. I got a "winterized package" with 2x6 walls, double insulation, dual pane windows, etc., etc...... I love mine. I could never pay for a 1700 sq ft stick built house with what this contains. It also has tape & texture walls just like a stick built.

    Michigan just made 6" walls code. Adds about 1k to the construction of a 1400 sq ' home.
