Celebrating 50 Years of Earth Day!

Did you know that April 22nd marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day?  As we adapt to the restrictions of social distancing, one thing we can celebrate is our shrinking carbon footprint. During this newfound journey, we are here to serve our clients today and tomorrow building energy-efficient homes designed to soak in natural light and ventilation. Modular construction maximizes the use of building materials and utilizes waste to energy practices which means far less waste in landfills.  A tighter building envelope combined with the insulation package we include in each home means greater energy efficiency and savings for the homeowner. Our homes are better for the families living in them and for our environment. What are some easy ways to reduce that carbon footprint even more?  Continue to reduce and consolidate trips to the store. Pick up needed items for neighbors and alternate trips to the store with friends. Wash and carry your own reusable shopping bags a

Want to feel happier, calmer or more energized? Pick the right paint color!

Connecticut Valley Homes newest option is painting your walls any color you wish so you don't have to do it after you move in... But how do you know the best colors to pick? To create the basis for your perfect indoor environment, consider the psychology of color. The color of a room affects your perception of that room and your mood while you're in it.
Bold colors like red and orange can be used for an entire room or as accents. Red is the color of energy and is typically where the eye looks first. Restaurant decor often incorporates red because it has been shown to stimulate appetite, so why not use it in your dining room? It is also the color of love and passion, so a little red in the bedroom couldn't hurt. Yellow is the cheerful color and a person surrounded by the more subtle shades feels more optimistic. Yellow also enhances concentration, but use bright yellow sparingly. While it is often thought of as a cheery color, people lose their tempers more often in intense yellow rooms, and babies may cry more. It can be mentally over-stimulating and is the most difficult color on the eyes. For a relaxing vibe in the bedroom or living room, look to the blues. Light blue and lavender walls promote relaxation and sleep, but stick to a softer color to avoid the cold and depressing effect their darker shades can have. You might want to consider painting your home office blue too. It promotes productivity. Green is currently the most popular decorating color. Trends come and go, but green is a refreshing color that is reminiscent of nature and easy on the eye. If you're going for a more natural, earth-toned scheme, green is a good color to include with browns and tans because it's eye-catching without being overwhelming. Green is calming to the senses and is relaxing both mentally and physically.
