How about a tour for you

Currently we have a duplex in the midst of production at the plant.  So the other day yours truly met the homeowners at the plant and we went for a tour and inspected the progress.  I thought you might like to come along.

In today’s photograph you see Jason on the right explaining to the homeowners on the left what they are looking at.  The owner of the duplex brought along his future tenants so they could see as well.

Delivered this morning

For the past several weeks we have been discussing the various options that are available in your new home; things like siding, roofing, windows, doors and so on.  That series is not over yet but, today we thought we would include you with the new home delivery that occurred this morning up north in Lamoille County Vermont.

Progress is underway

It is a gorgeous day, the sun is shining, the sky is bright blue, and it is about 60 degrees.  This is beautiful construction weather.

Earlier today we went to see one of our job sites up north in Lamoille Country, up in the mountains of north central Vermont.

As you can quickly see from today’s photograph there is a lot that has been done:

Time to play in the dirt.

We have several Projects that are currently under way for deliveries all in 2020.  So for the next several months we will be following the progress on these jobs as dreams become reality.

Take a look at today’s photograph and you will see DAY ONE of a brand-new Cape Cod style home in Lamoille County right here in northern Vermont.  This excavator is removing numerous White Pines to create an open house site. 

Is this exciting or what?

Yesterday we saw how the crane ready to hoist module number two up on the permanent foundation. 

Today’s photograph shows the crane working with the Set Crew to have the roof finished. 

All of the pictures from the delivery on the snow-covered roof to today’s picture cover a time span of about six hours total working time.  With a crew of 5 men the total house set took about eight hours work. 

What's the scoop with your garage?

The work on our Modular Home in Windsor County Vermont continues after the modules have been set on their permanent foundation.  Yesterday we looked at the front porch and today you see the framing for the three- car garage.

During construction of the foundation all of the concrete work was poured at one time.  That process creates a far stronger foundation as it is all tied or Pinned together.

It's the same job

Let’s continue with your series of Blog Posts dealing with the construction phase of building your new home.

Yesterday we built and poured the Footing for the Foundation and today’s picture shows the same job with the wooden wall forms set in place on top of the footings.

Inside the forms, an 8” space, concrete will be poured forming the foundation’s walls.  In today’s picture you can easily see the Yellow Concrete truck’s body with a long yellow thing sticking out the back of the truck.

It's spring construction time

The other day we threw out there an offer for a Free Deck as spring promotion.  Don’t forget the offer is still there!

Take a look at today’s photograph, it is that time of year again when construction season is underway.  In today’s photograph you are looking at forms within which concrete will be poured.  The forms will hold the concrete for the home’s footings

When did Ranch Homes become popular?

Yesterday we started a series on Ranch Homes, often nicknamed America’s Home.  The Ranch house’s popularity exploded at the end of WW II and for the ensuing years The Ranch has been the one style of home that has been built more than any other style.

At the end of The War my father-in-law at the age of 18 started his own construction company and immediately plunged into the booming construction industry.  His company built only three types of homes.  He had a Ranch House, a Cape Cod, and a Two-Story colonial.
