Today is a day of hope!

We know it’s spring time when the flowers burst into bloom.

Look at today’s photograph, these early Crocus are flowering, we know this because the purple blooms are at the front door of our office here in South Burlington.

This is a perfect time for you and your family to think about planning the building of your new home.

This morning we were talking with folks in California that are moving to Northern Vermont, they want a new home near a ski area.  I wonder where that could be?

Are there trending designs in the kitchen?

Yesterday we looked at Front Porches and how they are a trending feature in great demand.  It seems as though everyone wants their home to have a front porch and on a beautiful day like today that isn’t hard to imagine.

But, sooner or later the folks are going to want something to eat, something from the kitchen.  Do you know that many designers consider The Kitchen to be the heart of a home?

Let’s look at today’s photograph and I’ll try to point out some of the most popular features:

So, what's trending in residential design?

Across all residential designs there are a series of features that are trending where homeowners are constantly selecting as something they want included in their new home.

In the next several days or weeks, we will try to touch on some of the most popular architectural characteristics that are widely trending. 

Look what’s trending at Vermont Modular

Every once in a while, we have an individual style home that is enormously popular.  Just this week we’ve had numerous inquiries about The Banff style Vacation Home.  The Banff is named after a world class resort in Alberta Canada, that’s out in the Canadian Rockies on the shores of Lake Louise.  I’ve never been but the photographs are spectacular.

And, so is this vacation home!  The Banff from Vermont Modular Homes has beautiful lines that harken back to a modified Cape Cod with that contemporary flare. 

What powers your home?

Weather your home’s electricity is generated in a fossil burning power plant, renewable hydro power, solar energy, or Hamsters running around turning a generator it will eventually enter your home via the Power Panel.

Take a look at today’s photograph of a 200 amp. power panel it shows many wires coming out of the panel that then go on up into the house.  So, what are we looking at:

April Showers bring May flowers! Right?

Is it correct that April Showers do bring May flowers?  I am not really sure so I walked out the office and took a look outside, egad!  It is one of those April rainy chilly miserable days.

I wonder how many residential construction projects are working smoothly today?  Let’s pretend your new home is being site built; are you pleased with the progress today?  How about the building materials, are they being properly cared for? 

Energy Efficiency, making electricity

For all of our regular blog followers you well know that we talk a lot about Energy Efficiency and specifically how to conserve energy, burn less fossil fuels, cut back on Heat Loss, and all those things that contribute to Global Warming and the detriment of our environment.  We happen to think that here in Vermont the environment is taken very seriously. 

Family Portrait

Does your family have a portrait drawn that shows mom, dad, the kids, maybe a dog, and of course their home?

Sometimes the eyes of children see things that are so obvious.  Take a look at today’s photograph and you see a young boy drawing a picture of his family and I’ll guess that is his sister looking over his shoulder.  He even has grass, a tree, and the sun beaming down on his family.  Is that beautiful or what!

Rapidly finishing up.

Yesterday we talked about finishing up the basement Family Room and today I thought you might like to look and see the outside of this handsome home.

Take a look at today’s picture, you are looking at:
