What powers your home?

Weather your home’s electricity is generated in a fossil burning power plant, renewable hydro power, solar energy, or Hamsters running around turning a generator it will eventually enter your home via the Power Panel.

Take a look at today’s photograph of a 200 amp. power panel it shows many wires coming out of the panel that then go on up into the house.  So, what are we looking at:

April Showers bring May flowers! Right?

Is it correct that April Showers do bring May flowers?  I am not really sure so I walked out the office and took a look outside, egad!  It is one of those April rainy chilly miserable days.

I wonder how many residential construction projects are working smoothly today?  Let’s pretend your new home is being site built; are you pleased with the progress today?  How about the building materials, are they being properly cared for? 

Energy Efficiency, making electricity

For all of our regular blog followers you well know that we talk a lot about Energy Efficiency and specifically how to conserve energy, burn less fossil fuels, cut back on Heat Loss, and all those things that contribute to Global Warming and the detriment of our environment.  We happen to think that here in Vermont the environment is taken very seriously. 

Family Portrait

Does your family have a portrait drawn that shows mom, dad, the kids, maybe a dog, and of course their home?

Sometimes the eyes of children see things that are so obvious.  Take a look at today’s photograph and you see a young boy drawing a picture of his family and I’ll guess that is his sister looking over his shoulder.  He even has grass, a tree, and the sun beaming down on his family.  Is that beautiful or what!

It is delivery time.

Today is Monday, April 1, April Fools Day, a day set aside for pranks, jokes, and making fun of things.  But, rather than hit you with a clever prank I thought we’d talk about it being time to think about your new home being delivered.

Just today we had several inquiries about folks that want to have their families moved in quicker and sooner rather than slower and later. 

Isn't it beautiful out there today!

The weather report for today is somewhere between beautiful and spectacular, especially if you want to build a site-built home.  The sun is shining, it is not cold, but it is also not hot like in the summer, this is perfect construction weather.  The crew can work without getting cold or sweating.  Today is perfect.

So, given that perfect weather report I thought it would be a good time to show you why it is still better to build inside in a controlled environment.

Yes, it is officially spring but,

Yesterday was the first day of spring for 2019 and many of us are anxiously awaiting the arrival of flowers, birds, and warm sunshine. 

But, have you heard the weather report for tomorrow?  According to the National Weather Service here in Burlington, Vermont there’s a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for tomorrow on into Saturday.
