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?

So? What is available?

As winter descends upon us we thought it might be a nice idea to fill you in on what types of things are available as options within your new home.  Let’s face it many of the Vermont Modular Homes online friends will actively spend the next couple months creating and planning the various details of the new home.  So, while you plan here are some of what is available to you:

Powerful equipment

During the early phases of site work the excavator plays the biggest part of the job.  This machine has enormous power and is capable of shaping the land at the job site, building driveways, digging cellar holes, building septic systems, and a myriad of other equally important aspects on the property.

Typically, the “excavator” and the “concrete guy” work together very closely and are the first tradesmen on the job.

And another home begins

Yesterday afternoon we were up north in Lamoille County to visit one of the next homes to be delivered.  About a week ago today’s picture was a fairly dense stand of trees. 

The soil at this site is all sand so an excavator machine was able to easily and very quickly remove all the stumps creating a flat house site.  It will be just a few days and the machine will dig out the cellar hole in preparation for the building of the foundation.

Locating problem areas

As you seriously think about Energy Efficiency improvements for your home it is important to run a couple tests to find out what and where your home needs help.

If you see yourself taking pictures over this weekend may we suggest you consider a Thermal Imaging camera!

What types of things does a Thermal Imaging camera see?

Time to play in the dirt.

We have several Projects that are currently under way for deliveries all in 2020.  So for the next several months we will be following the progress on these jobs as dreams become reality.

Take a look at today’s photograph and you will see DAY ONE of a brand-new Cape Cod style home in Lamoille County right here in northern Vermont.  This excavator is removing numerous White Pines to create an open house site. 

How's your laptop

We would love to see you!  In the past month or so we have seen the number of inquiries skyrocket.  It seems as though everyone is realizing that summer is drawing to a close, school is about to start, and although the weather is beautiful I must admit that this morning for the first time in months I came to the office with a sweater.

We encourage you to call or contact us online to discuss your new home.  As we are sure you know we are a strict Social Distancing company and yes Masks are required here in our offices.

Look what's coming

This whole week the temperatures here in Vermont are slated to be in the upper 70’s and low 80’s.  So, why are we showing you a picture with a ton of snow in it?

First, let’s take a look at what is in the picture.  You are looking at a Poured Reinforced Concrete Foundation that had been poured in November of 2012.  What had been accomplished so far:
