Delivering a home in the winter is very possible!

Vermont Modular Homes delivers homes throughout Vermont and The North Country of New York State and we have been doing this every month of the year, even when the ground of frozen and covered with snow.

Take a look at today’s photograph, it shows a Vermont Modular home being delivered in the dead of winter on top of a mountain in Washington County south of Montpelier, our state’s capital.

How about working in the winter!

All the time we are asked if it is possible to build homes in the winter months.  The answer is quick and easy.  YES!

Take a long look at today’s photograph and I will try to explain what you are looking at.  Hopefully this will allay some of your concerns and answer a bunch of questions:

In addition to the Carpenter

Once your new modular home is gently placed on its permanent foundation by the set crew with the help of a heavy hydraulic crane; then the on-site work begins.  We have already talked about what the carpenter does so today let’s look and see what the Plumber will be doing; typically, your plumber will have three major tasks:

More detail about finish work.

Yesterday we provided a brief overview of what will be needed to finish the work on your new home once the Set Crew has gently placed your modules on their permanent foundation. 

Today let’s start a slightly more detailed explanation of what goes on.  Today let’s take a look at what the Carpenter might be doing for you:
