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

How to Feel Pampered Without Leaving Home

Is your life sometimes, or much more than sometimes, hectic? Having that place to get away from it all is what many people today want and need to feel refreshed. So, why not incorporate some quiet areas into your new house and feel pampered without leaving home!

When imagining the features that would make your new house a joy to come home to, spend some time thinking about your master suite - how big it is going to be, whether to have his and hers walk-in closets, the size of the windows, and where to put the bed. That is an excellent starting point, but to make your master bedroom a true haven, there's another significant factor: your master bath.

Haven bath

The best baths start with practicality and then incorporate design features that focus on pleasing furnishings, comfort and relaxation. Consider the vanity. Whether your view of double sinks is a practical luxury or a necessity, you are not alone. This is Connecticut Valley Homes' most sought-after master bath feature. If you and your partner share a morning routine, and one of you is neat and the other is, well, not so tidy, having your own bathroom sink and mirror can streamline an already stressful morning. Add Corian or quartz counter tops and stylish designer faucets for pleasing decor.

Now, where to put all those towels and other bathroom sundries ... Why not adjacent to the vanity? No need to have them in the hallway out of easy reach. It is simple to include a linen cabinet or closet in your master bath and create an out-of sight place for your clothes hamper or laundry basket. For more storage options, bath vanities are available with a variety of drawer choices. No need to bend over to reach shorter vanity heights. Taller vanities are more comfortable for many to use and provide even more storage space.

For the ultimate spa-like experience, consider adding a champagne bubbler whirlpool or soaking tub to the mix. A tub creates ambiance and sets the mood for relaxation. Grab your partner and some candles and enjoy a romantic bubble bath together. No need to skip the romance if a large shower is preferred; just add double shower heads and controls.
