Danger can be in the basement!

First – Happy April Fools’ Day.  I hope you have had several laughs today.  Today is truly a silly day devoted to laughing and smiling.  Now on to some serious thoughts……………

Yesterday we talked about how the garage can house some truly nasty and noxious fumes, odors, and toxic smells.  Staying with that lovely thought let’s take a look as something that is in the majority of Vermont homes – propane.  Propane has several names, Propane Gas, LPG, LP, or just plain gas.  There are two types of gas, natural gas and propane gas.  Today let’s restrict our talk to Propane.

Danger lurks in the garage!

We live in Vermont and one of life’s great treasures is having a garage.  Having a garage allows you to avoid all sorts of tasks that are, shall we say, less than exciting.

Who among us enjoys scraping ice and snow off the car in the driveway?  Who among us likes the walk in the rain from the house to the car in the driveway?  Who among us is happy to see that somewhere in the night there was a brief rain shower that has now ruined yesterday’s trip to the car-wash?  The car-wash one doesn’t apply to those of you that live on dirt roads.

Investments in your home

It appears as though homeowners are continuing to see the bathrooms and kitchens as the essential areas for upgrades, particularly the kitchen.  As homes tend to get smaller owners are investing more in their kitchen as they see the kitchen as the heart of their home.  One of the most over riding concerns for upscale appliances is whether they are Energy Star rated; be sure to check as you go shopping.

Recessed ceiling lights

One of the more popular ideas for a new home is recessed lighting.  Typically there is a “can” that is installed in or through the ceiling and up inside the can is a light.

The beauty of recessed lighting is that the source of the light isn’t highly visible.  With recessed lights it create a unique feel within a room and that has become very popular for all kinds of styles of homes.

Bitter Cold Weather

As all of us know this past weekend was truly bitter cold, yes it has significantly warmed up today but, while the memory of ten and fifteen degrees below zero is still frozen in our minds we would like to take this opportunity to bring to your attention the need for building your new home with the specifications that provide you with an Incredibly Well Insulated Home.
