    Enercept Named National Sponsor of Timber Framers Guild

    Build Connections and Build Your Brand 
    With Mitch Anthony, Presented by TFG Companies

    Managing a business can be daunting—most of us are craftsmen, not number-crunchers and form-fillers. But like a timber frame, your business can be an elegant, well-crafted structure supporting you and the people you work with as you fulfill the promises made to your customers. Your Timber Framers Guild is committed to building a strong and engaged community where all members can thrive, and through the TFG Companies program we are expanding on that pledge, offering new opportunities for you to learn and share your experiences in business and beyond. One of our goals with TFG Companies is to bring you relevant and cutting-edge business education so you can be as good a business owner as you are a timber framer. In that vein, we are excited to offer three regional business summits in the coming months that will offer ample opportunity for peer-to-peer networking as well as “DIY” brand camps with brand strategist Mitch Anthony of Clarity-First.

    Enclosing Timber Frames With Structural Insulated Panels

    Enercept designs custom Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) to exactly fit your timber frame. The custom SIP dimensions are taken right from the architectural plans and Enercept's drafting team customizes each one to precise sizes. The tailor-made EPS foam cores are relieved for spline connections and top and bottom plates. Dimensional lumber is factory installed by Enercept around window and door cut-outs, wall corners and roof perimeters. Wire chases are built into the panels at 16" and 44" above the floor, along with vertical chases beside each door and window opening in addition to 4' centers. All cut-outs and other scrap is recycled at the factory to eliminate site waste and disposal. The hand-crafted timbers are works of art. And, not only do they look great, they are also structurally sound. Insulation plays a key role within the building envelope.

    SIPS - A Greener Way to Build

    Enercept manufactures a variety of Structural Insulated Panel systems (SIPs) for virtually any construction need. Enercept strives to educate builders, architects, developers, appraisers, engineers and the general public about the values associated with SIPs construction. From increased comfort, value and efficiency to lower utility costs and a smaller carbon footprint, SIPS are the building blocks of the future.

    Not only has Enercept been in business for over 30 years, Enercept is the original holder of the patents for insulated connecting posts, which virtually eliminate thermal bridging, as well as our factory-installed electrical chases for routing wiring. This patented design means faster, easier, stronger construction.

    Fire Prevention Week

    Fire Safety, It's Important!

    Growing up there were two things that really frightened me, tornadoes and fires.  The second became more pronounced after my Spanish teacher, Karen Kittinger, and four of her children died in a house fire in 1975.  Mrs. Kittinger was one of my favorite teachers; she was so beautiful, soft-spoken and kind. After her death, I became somewhat fire-phobic (as my parents would attest to). Since then, I have matured and have become more realistic about fire prevention and safety.
