Visitors do stop by

Yesterday we posted a picture of a beautiful porch on the front of a brand-new ranch house we very recently delivered here in Chittenden County Vermont.

Well……………, as I was leaving the job site to return to our new office here in South Burlington, I noticed something staring at me.

Take a look at today’s photograph, isn’t that Owl beautiful!  He/she (who knows) was about 20 feet away sitting up on a branch just checking out the world.  This was the middle of the afternoon.

It will be time to dig shortly!

This weekend is when Day Light Savings Time begins and will last until November 3.  Often people think that this time of year is the most productive time for construction, and perhaps that is true.

Today’s photograph is of a job we did in Randolph Vermont, that’s in Orange County several years ago.  The excavator had started the job and as you can see a lot of dirt had been moved around in preparation for a modular home to arrive.

Take a look at today’s photograph, you are looking at a brand-new basement floor that was poured yesterday morning, that really is new.  And this was accomplished in the middle of winter.

We are receiving calls regularly from people retiring.

For many years we worked closely with First Home Buyers.  For numerous reasons the number of First Home Buyers has dwindled.  “The Kids” looking to buy their first home are faced with the staggering cost of land.  That and the fact that building materials have skyrocketed primarily because of the demand for materials caused by huge natural disasters.

This leaves “The Kids”, a.k.a. The Millennials in a difficult position where housing costs are constantly going up.
