Do you want a larger home?

Today is Thursday and we continue our series on Trending Concepts in residential construction.

For many years the overall size of single-family homes was getting smaller.  Then along came COVID-19 and it seems as though The American Family is spending more time at home, the kids are home more now that school is closed, and many parents are working from home.  There has been a huge shift in how the typical family sees its house. 

Open Concept Ranch House

Today’s photograph, here in August, was taken last winter as this handsome Ranch House here in Chittenden County was set on its permanent foundation.

You have seen this home before; we talk about it a lot as it is such a gorgeous home on an incredible spot of land.  The other day I drove past this home and all the trees are obviously all leafed out in brilliant greens.  The house blends into the woods beautifully and across the front is the expansive deck/porch that is being used a lot this summer.  I can almost smell the burgers.

Talk about a big house!

A couple days ago we had a great reaction to The Heritage House introduction.  Today take a look at The Burlington Colonial.  For all of our loyal readers let’s figure out which Burlington this home is named after.  There is Burlington Vermont and Burlington Massachusetts and then there is Burlington Ontario.

Today’s Burlington Colonial home is named after Burlington Ontario.  That is a surprise!  

A gorgeous American Classic

Yesterday we introduced you to The Tiverton, a stately four-bedroom home, a classic New England Two-Story Colonial home.  With 2,136 square feet of living space this is a handsome home just right for the larger family that needs a full four bedrooms.

Upon entering this home, you are immediately struck with the expansive two-story entry / foyer that is open to above creating a impressive welcome to this beautiful home.

This is the one you liked!

The other day we featured an exterior photograph of a particularly beautiful Ranch House.  Evidently you liked it because we received several inquiries and comments about how beautiful and popular it was.

So……, look at today’s floor plan.  This is the inside of that same Ranch House.  Here’s what you are looking at:

Awesome value

Today we are going to continue our look at Cape Cod Style homes and introduce you to The Franklin Cape Cod.

Take a look at today’s drawing for this smaller Cape.  If you are looking for the perfect starter home, a wonderful vacation home, or all you Snowbirds needing a smaller home for your Vermont Time….., then look no further this is exactly what you have been looking for.

The first floor includes:

Wonderful home & kitchen

For a couple days now we’ve been talking about ADU and of course everyone vividly remembers what an ADU is.  Right?  Ok……., it is an Accessory Dwelling Unit whose creation was designed as a “Mother In-Law” home. 

ADU’s are for members of the family that might need some help but want to maintain their independence in their own home.

The ADU we have been talking about has everything Mom or Dad could possibly want just smaller.

What do you know about Ranch Homes?

We have repeatedly mentioned that back in the 1920’s there was a lot of interest in “Kit Homes” that people bought from Retail Store Catalogues.  Sears is probably the most widely known for selling these homes that were all precut so that construction on-site would be quick and something that the owner could “easily” put together themselves.  The definition of “Easily” was certainly up for discussion.

Another Ranch House

So many of you liked seeing The Richmond Ranch house yesterday that we thought it might be fun to show you yet another handsome sized Ranch today.

Take a look at The Ryegate Ranch.  This home can easily be customized to fit your family’s individual wants and needs.  We will build this home for you, exactly the way you want, right down to the tiniest detail.

You are going to love your new home!
