Steel SIPs for basement?


Recommended Posts

This steel house was built here in Calgary in 1992. Full basement with Steel SIPs below grade, both floors above grade and for the cathedral ceiling. All interior surfaces of exterior walls were steel. Most interior walls were also steel (a few were drywalled). Floor joists were also steel with steel panels for the ceilings and OSB sub-floor. Steel siding, steel roof trims etc.  

Anyone able to send me some information on steel SIPs below grade? Though most of the foundation was covered in preserved wood sheathing and parged, beneath the decks there were areas where the exterior skins of the basement SIPs were steel.

No separate ground wires to the panel as each location had a 'local connection' to the steel home. The wires were run within metal chases but there were no boxes for the lights and outlets.
