Yes, we called for a delivery.

On Thursday, we had a home delivered to Southern Vermont in a beautiful Mountain location.  Look at today’s photograph and you will see one of the trucks and in the background, is another truck.

This home will be a Chalet Style home with expansive glass to take in the view and beauty of the location.

Each home has a process that is followed and yesterday’s delivery is but one of several aspects of ordering a modular home.

Solid-State Lighting

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.

We’ve been looking at finances.

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:

Construction Loan, yes? No?

This week we have talked about:

  • What the bank wants/needs
  • Types of Income
  • Credit scores

Once you have worked your way through all that plus a zillion other documents and mountains of paper work the bank will eventually either deny your application or it will promise to loan you the necessary money.

What are the latest trends in home design and style?

For the next several days I thought it might be fun to take a look at what American homeowners are looking for when it comes to styles, trends, and developments.  Over the past several decades it has become fairly clear that there are several concepts that homeowners of all ages want.  These trends can be built into brand new construction or included in older homes that are being remodeled. 

Take a long and thorough look at today’s energy!

For the past several days we have attended the 2017 Better Buildings by Design conference in Burlington.  This is “…..the region’s premier design and construction conference, which features interactive learning about building durability, efficiency,….” sponsored by Efficiency Vermont.

For the next couple days I’ll highlight particular portions of what I took away from this conference to provide you with an insight as to what is going on in Vermont as far as Energy Conservation and Efficiency.
