Staying your home for a while – showers

New homes have great attention paid to Kitchens, Bathrooms, and Floor Coverings.  Let’s look at one of the most accident-prone areas of all homes.  Yup, that would be the shower.

The shower is that place in the house where we are standing on a slippery surface and it is a simple fact that more falls happen in the shower than anywhere else.

Staying in the kitchen

It seems as though everyone agrees that The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home, it is that place where family and friends gather to share moments, prepare meals, talk, and share hopes and dreams.  The kitchen is normally where entertaining begins and in many homes, it is where dinner is served.

No Blog Post yesterday

We try to post a blog every day Monday through Friday but yesterday we were over in The Adirondacks of New York State visiting with some of our Vermont Modular Homes homeowners as a result there wasn’t time for a post.  But there was time to take a picture which I’ll share with you now.

Floor coverings are important!

The emphasis today is on comfort and safety when building and designing homes.  There are many examples of safety items that are required within all the various Code Regulations and most eventually point back to fire or fire prevention.  That entire topic we will leave for another day.

Summer is on the way! Think Vacation.

It was only last week when we had a lot of snow, actually it came on April Fools’ Day, how clever was that!  Actually, it was cruel.

We all know and are ready for summer and those precious moments by the water when we are alone with our thoughts, hopes, dreams, and aspirations.  Or it is the time so share with loved ones and family as we build a life time of memories.

Here’s a COOL idea for when you are planning.

Today’s photograph shows the buttons for an elevator.  Ok, ok, perhaps there are not too many of you that have twenty some odd floors to your home, I get that but none-the-less it shows an elevator.

Did you know that the installation of an elevator in your new home can be an ease job; but like many things it needs to be carefully planned out.

Lumber disputes between The US and Canada loom

For those of you that want to thoroughly investigate today’s blog concept we strongly encourage you to dig deeper and find out more for yourself. 

It is becoming increasingly possible that the cost of Lumber in the United States is about to take a significant jump upward, by some estimates as much as a thirty percent increase in the cost of Softwood lumber in the US.

Our best friend. Let’s take good care!

Over the past couple weeks, we have been talking about kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, lighting and a huge variety of things for our new home that will make life better for us; well hopefully life will improve.  That is the plan!

Someone recently mentioned to me, “….how about our dog, how can we make the home more accommodating for our dog?” 

How about Floor Covering? It can make a huge difference.

The other day we looked at bathrooms and how important they can be along with The Kitchen in making your new home POP as something so special.

Today look down at what you are sanding on, the Floor Covering can be equally important to making your home one of those homes that stand out.

Look carefully at today’s photograph that was taken in the living room of a Vermont Modular Home.  In the main living room, there’s obviously hardwood floors.  The kitchen has Ceramic tile and if you look carefully the adjoining room/den off the kitchen is carpeted.

What’s cooking?

Many people will make it very clear that “The Heart” of every home is the kitchen.  And, that argument is very valid in the majority of homes.

Whether it is your family or while you are entertaining it seems as though activity revolves around what’s cooking in the kitchen; it is the place where everyone seems to hang out.
