Finishing a basement

A week or so ago we showed you pictures of a brand-new basement where the floor had just been poured and we went on to say how everything was going to be finished off.  Take a look at today’s picture and you will see how far things have progressed.  The following has been accomplished:

It is delivery time.

Today is Monday, April 1, April Fools Day, a day set aside for pranks, jokes, and making fun of things.  But, rather than hit you with a clever prank I thought we’d talk about it being time to think about your new home being delivered.

Just today we had several inquiries about folks that want to have their families moved in quicker and sooner rather than slower and later. 

Everyone loves the kitchen

Numerous times we have written about the kitchen and have had tons of responses all indicating that The Kitchen usually is one of The Most Important rooms in the house.  Your kitchen is many times where the family congregates either as the immediate family each night for dinner or in the mornings for breakfast before everyone bolts out the door for their day.  I would venture to say that the kitchen is where the entire family spends more time together than any other room.

Isn't it beautiful out there today!

The weather report for today is somewhere between beautiful and spectacular, especially if you want to build a site-built home.  The sun is shining, it is not cold, but it is also not hot like in the summer, this is perfect construction weather.  The crew can work without getting cold or sweating.  Today is perfect.

So, given that perfect weather report I thought it would be a good time to show you why it is still better to build inside in a controlled environment.

Let's think insulation

For those of you that follow our blog you know that one of our favorite topics is Energy Efficiency.  For a myriad of reasons, we emphasize conserving Energy, it is the responsible thing to do in light of Global Warming and financially it just makes simple sense to not waste hard earned money by wasting energy.  It sounds like a no-brainer to me!

When Vermont Modular orders a brand-new home we consistently delete the insulation up in the attic.  We have several reasons for what might seem odd:

Yes, it is officially spring but,

Yesterday was the first day of spring for 2019 and many of us are anxiously awaiting the arrival of flowers, birds, and warm sunshine. 

But, have you heard the weather report for tomorrow?  According to the National Weather Service here in Burlington, Vermont there’s a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for tomorrow on into Saturday.

Spring, Day one !

As you all know by now today is the First Day of Spring 2019.  I am fairly confidant that all of us look forward to spring as that time of year when hope springs eternal.  This time of year is a very beautiful time, the trees will shortly start to show faint colors and it seems as though everything comes alive.  It really won’t be long until out in the garden somewhere the Daffodils will peak through as the precursor of spring.  In my yard the Forsythia is starting to awake and soon the yellow flowers of spring will appear.  It is a great time of year and things manage to always look better

Does your road look like this?

Does everyone realize that tomorrow, March 20, is the Spring Equinox or tomorrow is the first day of Spring, 2019 ? 

Traditionally Spring has been a time of hope, encouragement, and the time of the year to look to the future.  Soon we will be seeing some early plants sprouting upward as they take us all to a place of plenty, beauty, and hope!  Yes, spring is a wonderful time of the year.

It can be a muddy time of year!
