On your job right now you have the excavator guy outside with his machinery building all sorts of things. And, one of those tasks is to dig a trench for the underground power so that the electrician can have the power company energize the house. While the excavator and the electrician are busy, down in the basement the plumber is busily connecting all kinds of pipes so that the mechanicals of the house all work.
Yesterday we talked about how it was so important to have a licensed master electrician do the finish work on your house so that the power company will energize. That really is very important!
Today let’s take a quick look at a few more electrical ideas:
Yesterday we walked through the tasks that the excavator needs to accomplish and today let’s do the same for The Electrician. All modular homes come completely wired with the individual wires all in the basement. Your electrician will spend the vast majority of his time working on your house in the basement.
As of yesterday, everything is ready and finished, all that seems to be left is to wait for the house to be delivered. Well………………, not so quick! There might be two small, but critical things left to do. Then, we will be done. Take a close look at today’s photograph and you will see:
Once the foundation walls have been built and the forms are removed you still have two more things to do before the excavator backfills against the foundation:

As you wander around and beam with pride, have any of your neighbors stopped in to say hi and wish you well? Don’t be shy, if you see them in their yard doing something stop in and introduce yourselves. The fun and exciting part is all unfolding and Vermont Modular Homes will help you throughout!
Yesterday we situated the house on the property took into account how and what it will face. Last thought…….., take your time with the process of staking out the location for the house. Once you have made your choice it is virtually impossible to change so, be careful and think!
Today let’s finish the work necessary to have your building lot be a complete building lot that is fully developed. That mean you have the following:
For a couple days now, we have been talking about how difficult it is to buy and build a new home. The Supply (people looking to sell) is much smaller than The Demand (people looking to buy) So, what is the best way to move forward? As all Renters in Vermont know it is silly to continue renting! Since there is such a big demand it is very easy for Landlords to constantly raise their rent. Monthly rents are often more than a monthly mortgage payment would be for a comparable home.
Yesterday we started our series of the process of building a new modular home and that story continues today.
