The other day was July 4th with fireworks, hot dogs, burgers, picnics, and everyone’s attempt to escape from overwhelming heat. Here in Burlington we moved back and forth up and down from 100 degrees. Egad, it was hot.
Next Tuesday is July 4th and for many people the Nation’s Birthday Holiday will start on Friday and last all next week. Yes, Vermont Modular Homes will be closed for a long holiday weekend along with everyone else.
So, while you and your family are on vacation have you considered building your own vacation home right here in Vermont? Well of course you have and honestly, we think it’s a great idea.
As I start to write this blog post it dawns on me that today is May 30th, the traditional day for Memorial Day. This May 30th let us all remember those that have preserved our freedoms and the joy we have in our lives.
Energy Efficiency is a theme that Vermont Modular Homes constantly talks about, we think of Energy Efficiency as one of our core values.
Yesterday was Memorial Day a solemn day of remembrance, a day when we pay tribute to those that have protected our freedoms.
Memorial Day is also the unofficial start of the summer season. And, after we have given homage and respect for those that served we can think summer.
Summer typically calls for Air Conditioning. For years we would always hear, “….oh, it’s Vermont, we don’t need AC!” But lately we have all been spoiled and want Air Conditioning in our homes. Ok, but which one do we buy?
Here it is the middle of May and work is well underway for several new modular homes from Vermont Modular.
In today’s photograph you are looking at a beautiful building site for a “Contemporary Two-Story Colonial” home in Lamoille County right here in Vermont. Our new homeowners have done most of the site work themselves clearing several acres of what was a Hemlock forest to create what will be a uniquely beautiful home site.
Today’s blog is rather important to us as a company and we are reaching out to you for input and advice! Please let us know your thoughts!
In today’s news there was an article that California has approved a requirement that every new home built in their state has Solar Panels on the roof.
Yesterday we talked about homes for folks looking at Retirement. Today how about we take a look at families looking for their first home.
Normally, a couple or single looking for their first home are very tight on money and need to find the home that provides the “Biggest Bang for the Buck!” Now it’s decision time, which to we choose a Ranch, a Cape, or a Two-Story.
There are many types of clients that we work with all the time. One of the larger groups of people are those looking for a retirement home. This typically is a couple that has raised their family, the kids are basically gone off to their own homes, and now mom and dad are looking forward to retirement.
Every well-built home has good insulation to stop Heat Loss. Granted, Vermont Modular believes we build one of the most Energy Efficient homes available.
However, there is a “Weak Link” in every home and it is the same everywhere. That weak link is the windows.
We try to keep pace with the latest and greatest features in new homes. After all, we are constantly asked for an opinion about the most current trends.
Here’s a brief sampling of what’s going on in the world of tending stuff:
