It is that time of year

It seems as though every winter we always get the same type of questions. 

Take a look at today’s photograph, that was February 2015 up on top of a mountain in central Vermont and it had been snowing for several days, the road was completely covered, and it was a wild and crazy winter day.  The town highway department graciously sanded the road just ahead of our trucks and despite the nasty winter weather everything went well.

Several years later this home was sold and the new owners are thrilled to be a part of central Vermont.

Now or later?

Over the weekend I got thinking and need everyone’s help!  Today’s blog is more of a Conversation Starter.  So, join in and let’s hear your two-cents worth of august advice.

When is the correct time to start decorating for Christmas?

Should you wait until after Thanksgiving?

Should you get it all done before Thanksgiving?

Heat Pump

We have talked all week about our ADU, the small accessory home for mom or dad or even better both mom and dad.  The ADU we’ve been talking about is a whopping 780 Square Feet of living space, enough for two bedrooms, a full bathroom, kitchen, and living room.  It really is an adorable home.

We are thinking that mom and dad would like to have their new Accessory Dwelling be affordable and Energy Efficient.  This new home has:

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.

Hi Baby Boomers

Good afternoon Boomers!  Just in case you didn’t know……….., you are a Boomer if you are 54 years young all the way up to seventy-three, also years young.  But, those of you that are boomers already knew that.

Boomers are the babies that came into the world in the years after World War II.  Did you know that Baby Boomers are slightly more than seventy-six MILLION people.  WOW, that is a lot of people.

Veterans' Day 2019

Many of us are thinking of the big snowstorm that is coming to northern Vermont on this November day.

However, today is November 11th, Veterans’ Day 2019.  And on this winter day isn’t it wonderful that we are able to worry about a snowstorm!  Isn’t it wonderful that all of us can worry about our kids, our families, our jobs, and all the many other mundane aspects of life here in Vermont !

What's Trending?

Just in case you haven’t noticed the price of a single-family home in Vermont is skyrocketing to all-time record high prices.

In the past twenty years it is not uncommon for home prices to have gone up as much as 400% which is a great thing if you bought your home twenty years ago.  However, it you are looking today it leaves you with massive Sticker Shock.

Today we’d like to give you two ways to significantly bring your home to an affordable place:

Colonial Farmhouse

Today’s photograph is of our very popular Windham House, a very modern version of The Colonial Farmhouse look that was originally created in Scandinavia and Germany.  Early Americans basically copied the Farmhouse Style.

As we all know this style of home is extremely popular throughout New England and along with The Cape Cod Style might be considered the Quintessential Vermont home.
