Has anyone built with SIPS?

I am very interested in building with Structural Insulated Panels.

I have trawled through the online literature but would welcome some feedback from the ground on anyone who has experience in this building system.

I understand the technology as a whole, it seems like the quick build times and airtight shell is good but are there any hidden costs? What about external finishes?

Also i see SIPs floors are rarely used, i assume this is down to cost?

Any information would be great!
