Today began the installation of tongue and groove cypress pine siding on the underside or soffit of the deep roof overhangs.  Prior to the installation of the standing seam metal roof and solar panels, the entire soffit fabrication must be complete.  The 10 1/2 inch structural insulated panels that make up the roof of 60 Bragg Hill is thicker than is normally found in homes.  The soffit detail and edge finishing of these massive SIPs will protect and seal the SIP panels and provide a long lasting, handsome finish detail.  The best part of using cypress as an exterior to the home is that it never needs painting or staining.
