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

Enjoy Your Home From Outside With Connecticut Valley Homes

Enjoy Your Home From Outside

Summer is the perfect time to think about the features you want for your new home. Extend your level of enjoyment and satisfaction with a porch or deck...or both! Just want a small porch to frame your front door? Want to go all-out with a wraparound porch and a back deck? How about a deck with two stories accessible from the first and second floor? Connecticut Valley Homes can build something beautiful to your exact specifications

A front porch enhances the look and feel of your home, framing it and adding an inviting vibe, while a back deck provides the perfect setting for outdoor grilling and picnics, with a convenient place to host guests and enjoy the warm weather. If your home is one story, get the best of both indoors and outdoors with a screened-in back deck.


Decorating options abound as well! One of the best parts of being a homeowner is the fun you can have making your home your own, reflecting your taste and style. Hang or place your favorite plants between the pillars of your front porch. Select wicker or outdoor furniture to complement your home and increase the comfortable and inviting feel you want to portray.

Sitting in your rocking chair on your front porch and watch the sun set as the fireflies come out. Relax on the deck while your children play in the back yard. Enjoy a glass of wine, beer or lemonade as you're surrounded by nature just steps from your door. A fenced or screened deck or porch also means a safe place for indoor pets to get outside with minimal supervision.

Many of the 1,450-plus houses Connecticut Valley Homes has built since 1981 feature beautiful entryway porches and wraparounds.
