Finally, your big day has arrived, and it is now time for have the Set Crew and The Crane work their magic as they hoist your new home on its permanent foundation whereupon it will be your new home. Today’s photograph shows our “Go-To” Crane guy Cole, a talented crane operator. We hire only experienced set crews and crane operators. We want your new home to be a source of happiness for years to come!
Yesterday we situated the house on the property took into account how and what it will face. Last thought…….., take your time with the process of staking out the location for the house. Once you have made your choice it is virtually impossible to change so, be careful and think!
Yesterday’s conversation ended with water, sewer, and power all on your building lot. That makes it a fully improved building lot. Today let’s finish the process so that actual construction can begin.
There are two big pieces yet to be finished: FIRST
For a couple days now, we have been talking about how difficult it is to buy and build a new home. The Supply (people looking to sell) is much smaller than The Demand (people looking to buy) So, what is the best way to move forward? As all Renters in Vermont know it is silly to continue renting! Since there is such a big demand it is very easy for Landlords to constantly raise their rent. Monthly rents are often more than a monthly mortgage payment would be for a comparable home.
As we all know the past month or two has seen a record breaking number of huge natural disasters. Several hurricanes have hammered US Territories in The Caribbean along with Florida and Texas. The scope and magnitude of these disasters have shocked all of us.

Each home has a process that is followed and yesterday’s delivery is but one of several aspects of ordering a modular home.
This week we have been talking about Cold Air Penetration down in the basement. And there are several really important facts to always keep in mind as you work to make your home more Energy Efficient:
Last week we talked about the finances surrounding the purchase/building of a new home. This week we will focus on various energy saving components that in residential construction are rapidly becoming main stream.
The United States is the world leader in developing Solid State Lighting (SSL). Most of us know Solid State Lighting as LED’s.
All his week we have looked at finances as a part of your home project. Let’s face it without the money to pay for your new home it simply is not going to happen. Putting your finances in order can be done quickly or it can take a year or two. With proper planning, you should be successful. Remember, it all starts with The Bank.
Let’s pretend that your construction loan has been spent and your new home is now finished. This is the moment it all turns into a mortgage. There are factors to consider:
