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.

We thought it might be fun to take a trip through trending and inspirational ideas.
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:
