Playing in the dirt

Yesterday we looked as the trucks were backing in with the house modules; placing the “boxes” just right so the crane could easily hoist them up onto their permanent foundation.

Today let’s back up and take a look at the preparation that was necessary to create a great building lot deep in the woods.

Look at the excavator machine, it will

I wonder what style home

In just the past two weeks we have had two brand-new homes delivered and set on their permanent foundations.  So, for the next couple days we thought it might be fun to let you in on a pictorial history of these new homes.

In today’s photograph you can see the very last stages of delivery.  All the trucks, modules, and safety flag cars are stopped at the end of the new home’s driveway. The truck drivers will scope out the job site one last time to make sure everything goes smoothly.  (pssst !!!, yup! All went 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.

Color of the roof

Last week we talked about the possible color of the siding on your new home.  The second biggest color choice you have is the color of the roof.

Are you going to have asphalt shingles?  A typical roof from Vermont Modular Homes is a 30 year True Architectural Asphalt shingled roof.  Other than this Asphalt shingle roof there are a few homes that eventually end up with a Metal Roof, all of those are installed on-site as they are not done in the factory.

Vinyl Siding

Last week we talked about the front door and how it welcomes guests to your home.  From the road there are several things that catch people’s eye and probably the most significant is the color of your home which is almost always shown in the siding.  The most widely used color for single family homes is white; is that the color of your home?

Or, have you chosen one of many other colors?  Most homeowners today use Vinyl Siding as their siding of choice.  What do you think of vinyl?

Knock knock! Who's there?

Yesterday we asked you to think about your Front Door.  Today let’s take another look at the front door but this time the Door’s Hardware. 

What will you need to open the front door?

  • Key
  • Fingerprint
  • Facial recognition
  • Wi-Fi connection

Would you like to “call” the house on your phone and have the front door unlocked and the lights turned on just before you arrive with bags of groceries?  That could be helpful.

What is your favorite style?

From Windows to Shutters and now today how about front doors?

Nothing quite says “Welcome” to your new home as much as your Front Door.  There are so many different types, styles, designs, and colors for your front door.

  • With glass?  No glass?
  • With side lites or without?
  • Which style?  Traditional, Craftsman, Modern, Rustic, Art Deco, Farmhouse, Bungalow, and so many more
  • That is only a Tiny sampling of available styles

How about color?  Did you know that colors are an indication of mood?
