Pizza anyone?

Across America there are outstanding Trending Aspects of home building.  So today let’s look at one of a couple “Must Have” features in a new home.  These are the things that prospective home building families Must Have incorporated in their new home.

What is your favorite COLOR ?

And on this Friday we continue with our series on Home Style Trends.

We are sure all of you have noticed that in recent years the COLORs of white and all sorts of grey have dominated the color schemes in new homes.  In the kitchen the overwhelming color was white cabinetry with mostly white counter tops.  And, in the living room areas of the house the overwhelming color was one of many shades of grey.

How about Mold

Last week we started a series of Blog Posts that deal with Trending Concepts in residential design.  Continuing today with a new emphasis that is being placed on keeping a home Healthy.  Do ya think that COVID and The Pandemic might have had an impact on this Trending idea?

Do you want a larger home?

Today is Thursday and we continue our series on Trending Concepts in residential construction.

For many years the overall size of single-family homes was getting smaller.  Then along came COVID-19 and it seems as though The American Family is spending more time at home, the kids are home more now that school is closed, and many parents are working from home.  There has been a huge shift in how the typical family sees its house. 

America's favorite home, The Ranch House

Today’s photograph will bring to an end the series we have done on our Addison County Ranch House.  Later, probably in the spring, we will go back to do a full photo shoot and share with you the progress.

In today’s picture you can see that the vast majority of the exterior has been completed yet there are two major parts yet to be done.

What do you think it wrights?

After the delivery has successfully been accomplished the big day finally arrives when the modules (affectionally known as Boxes) are about to be assembled on their permanent foundation.

In today’s photograph it is early on a cold December morning.  The Heavy Crane has arrived along with the Set Crew.  Both the crane and set crew will work together as they piece everything together.

At the end of one day this nice size ranch house in Addison County has been put together.

Playing in the dirt

Yesterday we looked as the trucks were backing in with the house modules; placing the “boxes” just right so the crane could easily hoist them up onto their permanent foundation.

Today let’s back up and take a look at the preparation that was necessary to create a great building lot deep in the woods.

Look at the excavator machine, it will
