Deliveries – are you interested?

Where has the time gone?  This is the last weekend of April 2016 and this Sunday will be May 1.  For a long time I’ve always thought of May as the unofficial start of summer.

Over the past several months we have been talking with a lot of folks with plans and dreams of building their new home in 2016.  The demand for new homes seems to be significantly greater this year than has been the case for the past many years.

Dirt in the air, that would be your air

Every time you go looking in your home for places where air has found a Path way to escape and drag along precious heat, it is relatively easy to find.

Let’s pretend that you are up in the attic where all that icky insulation is.  The majority of you will find that the insulation in the attic is Fiberglass insulation that comes in rolls and is put in place to keep the heat from escaping and having you use less energy.  The “Less Energy” item is our thing here at Vermont Modular.

Creativity

Over the weekend we received several emails from folks who follow our blog.  Several disagreed with our belief that building 24” o.c. is better.  Remember, we think it works better because it provides fewer thermal bridges which in turn ends up with LESS Heat Loss.

I was pleasantly surprised to read from several of you that strongly agreed, 24” o.c. is better.  Well folks, it seems as though some of us agree.

Building your new cottage?

For the past twenty-five years Vermont Modular has been delivering homes throughout Vermont and The North Country of New York.  For roughly twenty of those years our normal client was a young couple looking for their first home; our most popular style of home was The Cape Cod. The Cape represents a teriffic value where the “up-front-cost” was kept to a minimum.  Most of those homes were delivered as an “Unfinished Cape” where the second floor would be completed onsite usually by the young couple owning their first home.

Investments in your home

It appears as though homeowners are continuing to see the bathrooms and kitchens as the essential areas for upgrades, particularly the kitchen.  As homes tend to get smaller owners are investing more in their kitchen as they see the kitchen as the heart of their home.  One of the most over riding concerns for upscale appliances is whether they are Energy Star rated; be sure to check as you go shopping.

Update from The New Vermont Modular Homes

For those of you that regularly follow this blog you will know that we consistently beat the drum of Energy Efficiency and this past couple days vividly demonstrates the need for Energy Efficiency.  It sure has been cold lately!  This coming weekend is scheduled to be quite COLD. 

We thoroughly enjoy our all but daily chats with you about all kinds of topics all dealing with home ownership, building modular homes, and simply staying in touch as we talk about Energy Efficiency and building new homes.
