Let’s be spectacular today! OK?

As we have been learning and finally building our new home we have consistently talked about either Ranch Style homes that are all on one floor or the other day we talked about “Affordable Capes.”  Both styles of homes represent quality and value!  Don’t forget that every home is 100% Custom Built and incorporates all kinds of Energy Efficient features.

With all that as our background today we are going to venture off into the world of truly up-scale modular homes representing even greater values.

How about a brief tangent today

Now that we have learned all kinds of terms from joists to jack studs to rough openings and so on………, perhaps it might be helpful if we took a look at exactly what it is that people want in their new homes.  After all, if we are about to build our imaginary “Dream Home” we might want to build what is most popular.  Right?  Sure!

It seems as though Americans are mildly divided as to what they want.  On one hand we have The Millennials and Gen Xers as compared to Boomers and Seniors.

We are feeling rather flattered to say the least!

It seems as though our daily blog that so many of you end up reading was recognized today in a national modular home industry newsletter.  They happened to say, “Vermont Modular.…this is a must read by everyone in the modular industry.  Up to date, loaded with information, and plenty of pictures.”  It goes on from there but our heads are swollen enough for one day.  By the way, thank you for the kind words, they are appreciated.  Thanks!  Oh my!

How things are built. Seriously, how are things built?

Here it is – summer time.  This is the time of year when it is the easiest to build homes.  It is a lot easier to build a home in the summer than in the brutal and harsh weather of winter.  So, with that in mind we thought it might be a good idea to take a look at how your new home is actually built.

For those of you that a contemplating building your new Modular Home it just might help if you understood how it all happens.  After all, there’s more to it than simply pounding nails.

Automation isn't just for the factory

Good afternoon on this beautiful sunny Saturday.  We really have been granted some really nice weather the last few days, and today doesn't appear to be the exception.  Alas, I didn't fire up the pen and paper to talk about the weather though; but I assure you the weather does play a key factor in what I want to talk with you about today.

It needs to work for you, not someone else!

As spring is truly here we are getting a lot of folks in asking all sorts of questions about design and function for their new home. 

Please remember that Vermont Modular as a company specializes in 10% Custom Built homes that are Energy Efficient.  Those are the two underlying precepts that guide our business.  Both Blaine and I are committed to building only what people want rather than what might be in a booklet of suggested plans.

Upgrades for your home; are they worth it?

The other day I was reading about the value of certain upgrades to your home.  Obviously there are some things that make a lot of good sense and others are simply a waste of money.

Many of us are actively thinking of selling our home so that we can move on to a new home.  In the process of getting ready to sell we all consider improving our home so it sells better and hopefully our improvements will get us a better price.
