For 2018 what are the hottest colors?

The summer months is the perfect time of the year to plan out your new home.  We have been talking about all kinds of aspects associated with home planning and today let’s be rather specific.

When you create a design and floor plan one of the big things to consider is what color or variety of colors will you choose to pain inside your home.

Here are some of the most popular trending colors for 2018:

are you planning ahead?

Do you realize that within a couple weeks it will be July 4th.  It seems like just yesterday it was Memorial Day, the unofficial beginning of Summer and here we are on the brink of my favorite holiday of the year!  Please excuse me as a throw in my two cents as far as which holiday is the best.

So, take a look at today’s photograph.  If we are in the beginnings of summer, why the fall picture with foliage?  Doesn’t that seem a tad out of place?  Well not really! 

Another new home

As many of you know we try to post a blog every business day of the week.  Yesterday that didn’t happen, and I thought it might be fun to let you know why.

Take a look at today’s photograph and you will see a two-story colonial modular home being set on its permanent foundation.  That’s where we were yesterday in Windsor County Vermont.  The set crew arrived along with the crane and the day went this way:  (the times are approximate)

Luxury upgrades to your home

One of the hottest and most trendy things you can do to your home is the outdoor space where family and friends can gather. 

This weekend is scheduled to be excellent with bright sunshine, gentle breezes, and temperatures in the low 70’s.  Oh, come on, isn’t Vermont spectacular in summer!  That was not a question.

Taking your living spaces outside to include decks, porches, and patios is one of the most popular things you can do to your home!  Take a look at today’s photographs and see:

How beautiful is your kitchen?

As you know we are spending a couple days looking at those very special and extremely cool things that you can do to add that WOW-Factor to your home. 

What do you think of today’s photograph?  Is that one beautiful kitchen?  Included within the photograph are some of today’s most popular trends, things like:

How about all those really great ideas!

For the next several days we thought it might be a good idea to talk about what is trending in home design.  What are the various features that are available?  Oh, sure we all know about hard-wood floors and granite counter tops.  But, how about some of the things that are out there as being very cool.  We thought it might be fun to take a trip through trending and inspirational ideas.

So, what’s NOT to do?

We get a lot of calls and inquiries about building a new home and it seems as though many must first sell their existing home.  Granted, today here in Vermont it is most definitely a “Sellers’ Market” but it is to your advantage to sell your home for Top-Dollar so that you can move on to your new home.  Right?

So here are a couple things that we are going to suggest you do NOT DO:

It is that time of year to think about AC

Yesterday was Memorial Day a solemn day of remembrance, a day when we pay tribute to those that have protected our freedoms.

Memorial Day is also the unofficial start of the summer season.  And, after we have given homage and respect for those that served we can think summer.

Summer typically calls for Air Conditioning.  For years we would always hear, “….oh, it’s Vermont, we don’t need AC!”  But lately we have all been spoiled and want Air Conditioning in our homes.  Ok, but which one do we buy?
