are you planning ahead?

Do you realize that within a couple weeks it will be July 4th.  It seems like just yesterday it was Memorial Day, the unofficial beginning of Summer and here we are on the brink of my favorite holiday of the year!  Please excuse me as a throw in my two cents as far as which holiday is the best.

So, take a look at today’s photograph.  If we are in the beginnings of summer, why the fall picture with foliage?  Doesn’t that seem a tad out of place?  Well not really! 

Another new home

As many of you know we try to post a blog every business day of the week.  Yesterday that didn’t happen, and I thought it might be fun to let you know why.

Take a look at today’s photograph and you will see a two-story colonial modular home being set on its permanent foundation.  That’s where we were yesterday in Windsor County Vermont.  The set crew arrived along with the crane and the day went this way:  (the times are approximate)

Energy Efficiency vs Energy Conservation.

As I start to write this blog post it dawns on me that today is May 30th, the traditional day for Memorial Day.  This May 30th let us all remember those that have preserved our freedoms and the joy we have in our lives.

Energy Efficiency is a theme that Vermont Modular Homes constantly talks about, we think of Energy Efficiency as one of our core values.

The beginning of another project

Here it is the middle of May and work is well underway for several new modular homes from Vermont Modular.

In today’s photograph you are looking at a beautiful building site for a “Contemporary Two-Story Colonial” home in Lamoille County right here in Vermont.  Our new homeowners have done most of the site work themselves clearing several acres of what was a Hemlock forest to create what will be a uniquely beautiful home site.

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.
