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

Beyond The Rubber Duck

Whether we're getting ready for an outing or keeping up with daily hygiene, we all wish to feel relaxed and unrestricted in our bathroom. There are many possible designs that will make this room feel less functional and more luxurious.  When designing homes, Connecticut Valley Homes keeps the following in mind:

  • Designate spaces for specific purposes. For example, keep the bathroom sinks separate from an area dedicated to putting on makeup or styling hair. 
  • Allow the bathroom to be a space like any other room you create in your home. Create a room that doesn't make you feel cramped and like you want to get in and out as quickly as possible. 
  • Eliminate shower doors and create a walk in shower. This creates a more open and less confined feel. 

  • Consider technology. A built in stereo of flat screen might add the perfect touch for relaxation. 
  • In floor radiant heat is a great solution for cold feet. 
  • In shower storage is important especially if you want to eliminate clutter on the shower floor. Built in shower shelves are a great solution.
  • Let there no longer be a foggy mirror! Invest in a defogging mirror and eliminate the hassle. 
  • Create a separate room for the toilet. 

  • When designing a master bath place your entryway in a hassle free, easy access location. Also, consider the flow from the bedroom to the bathroom when determining this location.
