How about saving a lot of money!

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has just recently published their predictions for financial savings as America conforms to contemporary Energy Codes.

As all of you know Vermont Modular continually talks about Energy Efficiency, savings money, not contributing to Global Warming, doing the right thing for our Environment.  These are all key Core Values of Vermont Modular.

As winter approaches the phone rings! Where were you?

This fall Vermont Modular has become a very busy place.  Last week we ordered a big house for central Vermont and as we speak there are two homes in the plant being built.

It seems as though all summer long people are “…at the beach” enjoying summer in Vermont.  But, just in case you haven’t noticed the leaves are turning and almost everyone has turned on their heat.  I’ve had the heat on for a couple weeks. 

It happens every year without fail.

We live here in Vermont where many will comment that the weather is simply awful.  Much of the year it is cold, snowy, ice covered, windy, and for some us just miserable.  However there is nothing quite as wonderful as a summer in Vermont.  The results of my very NON-scientific study reports that during the summer people are at the beach, eating hot dogs, and simply enjoying summer, worries about winter’s cold are ignored.

Can I sill order my home for this year?

Do you believe it is already the first of September?  Where did the time go?  I am suggesting that Summer simply slow down and hang around longer.  This coming weekend is Labor Day the unofficial end of summer.  (excuse me while I weep and wail)

Just this morning we were down in southern Vermont checking out a job site and finalizing drawings for a winter ski house.  The plans call for this rather large ski house to be finished and occupied by Thanksgiving.  Is that possible?  Of course it is!

More important utilities, although not exciting.

Yesterday we took a look at water wells.  That would be the fresh or clean water entering your home.  Today we take a look at the……, well shall we say, “not so clean” water that leaves your home.  By the way that water is politely referred to as effluent.  No, no!  We said effluent not affluent.  We are talking about waste not money.  J

And yet even more work on the garage.

Yesterday we looked at the Garage as siding was being installed; that was on the other side of today’s photograph.

On the left you are looking at The Gable End of the modular home.  As you can see some of the Cedar Siding has been installed with more to come.  Look carefully at the picture and you will see that there is strapping on the outside of the sheathing; this holds the siding away from the building; this is the right way to install wood siding.
