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

Connecticut Valley Modular Homes Are Prefabulous!!!

Today, “prefab” is an umbrella term used to describe any type of home that is made from key building parts that were manufactured off-site. It also describes key building components that are created in “a controlled factory environment.” When defined in this manner, all of the home types mentioned below are prefabricated. As outlined by author and environmentalist Sheri Koones in her book Prefabulous & Sustainable, “Prefab isn’t just a way of building – it’s many different ways of building.” Koones notes several advantages to this type of construction, such as:

1. Controlled manufacturing environment
2. Substantially reduced waste
3. Fast-tracked construction timeframe
4. Cost savings on labor and materials

However, not all prefabricated homes are the same. To understand the real difference in “prefab” it’s important to look at the material, manufacturing processes and final construction methods used.

Panelized Homes
These homes are constructed with “Structural Insulated Panels” (SIPs) that are typically created by foam insulation pressed between two outer structural panels of plywood or strandboard. Transportable sections of panelized homes, often with windows and doors in place, are built in factories and then shipped flat on trucks to the building site, where the home is pieced together.

Modular Homes
These homes are comprised of one or more “modules” or “boxes”, which are preassembled in factories, and then shipped in sections by transport truck to where they are matched to a premeasured building foundation or site location.

  1. Thanks for the info; I've been researching the internet for a nationwide modular homes to build a home on a plot of land that I'm considering purchasing. Are these homes OK to be built on any foundation; or do they have to be put on a certain type of ground?
