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

Building With Children - Replacing Confusion with Excitement

Moving can be tough on the whole family, but especially young children. Imagine being young kid who does not fully comprehend all of the changes surrounding them. Moving probably seems somewhat scary and dauntingly unfamiliar.

For this reason, it is imperative to generate excitement during the building process by including all family members. While a child might grow attached to their current home, there is no doubt that they can quickly grow fond of their new one. If you are a homeowner with young children consider designing creative kid spaces. This will help the transition into a brand new home feel exciting rather than sad and confusing. Not only are creative kid spaces a fun idea, but incorporating such designs/areas helps to also keep kid items in a designated area rather than all over the house. Consider inspiration like these spaces when building with children:

Bunk beds that offer personal, unshared spaces for families with multiple children.

Reading room with a cozy nook. 

Designated area for backpacks and notes.

Chalkboard walls allow for creativity in areas that are easily accessible for children.

Homework and craft space for each child of the family.

Media rooms and reading nooks keep books, video games and movies all in one very comfortable area.

Rock walls will promote activeness and are a really cool entrance to a lofted hangout area.

For the active/sporty child.

Add a swing to your child's bedroom and consider a treehouse for backyard fun/adventure.
