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

The coastal home is the most trend-oriented yet classic type of home. Building codes mandate that windows, doors and exterior material assemblies must be able to withstand the flying debris, high winds and driving rains of  storms. With Modular Homebuilding most of the typical problematic issues associated with Coastal Construction don't apply.

Homes should be built to last a lot of lifetimes. That's not possible if the basic skeleton isn't solid. Let's see what you get with a (Connecticut Valley) modular home:
Kiln-dried lumber to prevent twisting and warping.
Multiple fastenings: nails, screws, glue, and adhesive for superior strength.
2"x6" walls for energy efficiency.
Plywood  exterior sheathing panels for strength and durability.
Engineered microlam beams for strength and design flexibility.
And hidden from view:
A flush beam in the basement for unobstructed headroom.
The strongest floor available with 16" on center framing, double perimeter joists and a solid plywood subfloor.
R-21 wall insulation glued to the back surface of the sheetrock so it will never shimmy down and be less effective (this is only possible with the "inside-out" modular building method).
Sheetrock as long as 20' to eliminate excess seams while giving a finer finish.
Metal straps that further reinforce the joints between walls and floors and walls and ceilings and roofs.
R-49 ceiling insulation which exceeds code requirements and will keep utility bills low.
RG675 OHM quad shielded coaxial TV cable.
Category 5 phone cable.

Can there possibly be more? You bet!
Green building elements are included as standard (Ask for details).
Roofing felt and ice dam barrier under all roof shingles to give added protection from the elements and keep your roof warranty valid.
Continuous code inspection throughout the building process, by an independent, third-party engineering firm to insure complete building code compliance.
Steel plates to protect the wiring, as it passes through the wall studs, from nails and picture hangers.
All range hoods, bathroom exhaust fans and dryer exhausts are vented to the outside for improved indoor air quality.
Roll-out shelving in cabinetry.

My word, if all of that is standard, what the heck is optional?
Optional Exterior Choices:

Cedar shingle, clapboard and board-and-batten siding.
Fiber-cement siding.
Azek exterior trim for rot and insect resistance as well as low maintenance.
Any roof pitch from shallow to steep.
Any roof design from gambrel to hip to gable.
Skylights and sun tubes to add natural light in interior spaces.
Farmer's and screened porches for those warm summer nights.
And more.
Optional Interior Choices?
Hardwood floors of oak, maple or bamboo.
Fireplaces, both wood and gas burning.
Ceramic tile floors.
Whirlpools, luxurious soaking tubs and tile showers.
Granite, marble and beautiful man-made solid surface countertops.
Built in window seats, desks and book shelves.
Walk-in kitchen pantries standard in many plans.
And more. Let your imagination soar.
How does a new modular home compare to existing homes?
You're almost comparing apples to oranges. The main reason people buy an existing house is that they like the location. Seldom, if ever, do they love everything about the house and are always a tad uneasy about how some of the elements have "aged", like the roof and the heating system.

If you build a new Connecticut Valley home you will get, automatically:
Comprehensive design/build services.
A tight, energy-conserving shell with built-in green features.
ENERGY SAVERS: R-49 ceiling insulation, R-21 wall and R-30 floor insulation, thermal-pane windows with Low-E energy saving glass and more.
10 year home buyer's warranty.
And Much, Much More!
This is truly becoming a case of a picture being worth a thousand words.

And what's even better than a picture is the real thing. Come see our stunning model homes in Connecticut for yourself.
