How important was heat loss?

Throughout our blog posts we are constantly talking about Heat Loss and how very important it is.  The more heat you loose from your home the more money it costs you and the more fossil fuel you burn.  Losing money isn’t a good idea and contributing to Global Warming is for sure not a good idea.  Losing money is the same as foolishly wasting money, that’s fairly dumb.  Contributing to Global Warming is irresponsible!

The next in our series about design ideas

So far we have talked about Bathrooms and Kitchens and how significant they are to make your new home standout as a uniquely beautiful home.

So, what’s NOT to do?

We get a lot of calls and inquiries about building a new home and it seems as though many must first sell their existing home.  Granted, today here in Vermont it is most definitely a “Sellers’ Market” but it is to your advantage to sell your home for Top-Dollar so that you can move on to your new home.  Right?

So here are a couple things that we are going to suggest you do NOT DO:

Interior design question

The weather is crazy, one minute it snows, the next rain, and they are predicting 60’s for early next week.  Whaaaaat is going on?  Oh well, we can’t change any of it.

So, it remains a great time to plan for your new home.  And, here is today’s question – In the new plans, should you include a dining room?  When you design your new home it will obviously include:

How's the humidity in your home?

As fall approaches and winter is around the corner it is that time of year when we close the windows and try to seal our homes from winter’s harsh weather.  Before you go ahead and close everything up for the winter it might be time to consider moisture control.

Ask yourself a couple questions about winter in your home:
