Delivering a home in the winter is very possible!

Vermont Modular Homes delivers homes throughout Vermont and The North Country of New York State and we have been doing this every month of the year, even when the ground of frozen and covered with snow.

Take a look at today’s photograph, it shows a Vermont Modular home being delivered in the dead of winter on top of a mountain in Washington County south of Montpelier, our state’s capital.

The day this home was delivered it was a balmy minus twenty degrees.  Egad, it was bitter cold.  The house was delivered one afternoon just before sun-set.  The trucks jockeyed around and placed the modules on the property correctly for the crane to hoist then up on to the foundation.

The setting of the house with the crane and set crew took place the following morning.  It was again minus twenty degrees, but the sun was shining brightly and not even a hint of wind.  Actually, it wasn’t too awfully cold.  Let’s face it, on a cold winter day like that everyone dresses accordingly.

But, as fate would have it things quickly changed

The temperature steadily climbed up to twenty degrees above zero.  Then, the clouds rolled in and the bright sunshine disappeared.  Of course, the wind picked up.  So, by lunch time it was twenty degrees, cloudy, and very windy.  The afternoon was far worse than the morning.  The wind made it seem much colder than it actually was.

At the end of the project the house sat proudly on its foundation and continues to serve its owners well.  I am sure they are warm and comfortable as they approach their next winter.

In about a month we will be having a nice size ranch home delivered here in Chittenden County with a Cape / Chalet being delivered to a popular ski resort in Windham County of southern Vermont.

Would you like your home delivered in the winter?
