Solar Panels on your roof.

Today’s blog is rather important to us as a company and we are reaching out to you for input and advice!  Please let us know your thoughts!

In today’s news there was an article that California has approved a requirement that every new home built in their state has Solar Panels on the roof.

setting a home is very exciting!

Yesterday we had a successful house set in The Berkshires of western Massachusetts.  This particular home was a completely Custom-Built home that reflects the owners’ individual wants and needs.  I will walk through some of the unique characteristics that are in this home.  This way you will see what can happen in your new home:

How about your first home.

Yesterday we talked about homes for folks looking at Retirement.  Today how about we take a look at families looking for their first home.

Normally, a couple or single looking for their first home are very tight on money and need to find the home that provides the “Biggest Bang for the Buck!”  Now it’s decision time, which to we choose a Ranch, a Cape, or a Two-Story.

What are the advantages of a Modular Home?

There’s the saying that “….a picture is worth a thousand words.”

Take a look at today’s photograph, it was taken by a good friend of mine over in New York State a couple years ago.  Obviously, it is a building under construction on-site.  Did we mention the snow and ice that have engulfed the building site?

Isn’t that a fantastic photograph?  I so clearly points out why you wouldn’t want your new home built on-site.  If you stick-build a home one board at a time onsite it is guaranteed it will be exposed to all kind of harsh weather.

What is a condensing boiler?

It seems as though Vermont Modular is talking about Energy Efficiency a lot!  Honestly, it is one of our favorite topics.  As a responsible Vermont company, we actively try to promote what will help our environment the most.

Today let’s talk about Condensing Boiler.  First, just a tiny bit about terminology;

How about that kitchen fire?

The other day we talked about a grease and/or cooking oil fire in the kitchen and how very dangerous they can be.  I was surprised how quickly people commented on that blog post.  Obviously, there is sincere interest and concern.  Let’s face it the grease fire in the kitchen can easily end up with the home being destroyed so, the kitchen fire is critically important and extremely dangerous!

Using spray foam in the basement

Yesterday we talked about insulating the basement and the conversation was active, thanks everyone for joining in!

In yesterday’s blog we limited the conversation to the use of Polystyrene Rigid Foam panels.  If you don’t know it by its real name (Polystyrene) then you probably know it as “Foam Boards” or “Foam panels.”  These are typically pink or blue in color and they are used everywhere.

Every home will need heat!

Several days ago, we talked about the tasks your carpenter will need to do inside the home. 

Today let’s take a look at one of several ways to heat your new home.  Almost always the plumber is also your heating technician.  When you are ordering your new home from Vermont Modular Homes you will need to decide how you plan on heating your home.  This is not an easy question as there are so many options available to you.
