Celebrating our Founder, Catherine Taylor, in honor of International Women’s Day 2019

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.  The first gathering to celebrate this event was in 1911 and was fully adopted by the United Nations in 1975 to help forge a more gender-balanced world. Not long after that, our very own Catherine Taylor decided to leave her full-time job as an elementary school art teacher and enter the world of new home construction. As the story goes, “It was summer and I was off from school. After a chance meeting with someone who was building modular homes, I decided to leave teaching and go into home building.” She completed a few projects on her own, then in 1981 incorporated as Connecticut Valley Homes.

Narrow Lot; Broad Potential


As the number of people wanting to live along the shoreline increases so does the need for new homes designed to fit the smaller building lots found in the quaint communities along the Connecticut and Rhode Island coast. 


With some creative ingenuity, the smaller and narrower building lots can be the best of all worlds combining a desirable location with a beautiful new home designed to perfectly fit the building site.

The expert designers and builders at Connecticut Valley Homes pride themselves on their ability to capitalize on the potential of challenging lot sizes.  Code restrictions and lot limitations are used to advantage by inspiring clever and imaginative solutions to what others may consider insurmountable problems or undesirable nuisances. The design team at Connecticut Valley takes full advantage of a narrow or smaller building site to create a beautiful, functional and fun home designed to maximize space within the overall footprint.

Pre-designed or Custom Narrow Building Lot homes from Connecticut Valley Homes and Rhode Island Modular Homes include a wide variety of space and style options.  


Homes range in size from the cute and cozy single-story Brookfield home, which features two bedrooms and a full bath in 1124 square feet, to the expansive and impressive two-story Jamestown design, which boasts three bedrooms and two and a half baths in 2810 square feet.  The optional wrap-around porch, if selected, offers a possible second-floor deck fully accessible from the spacious loft area.

A variety of home styles are also available.  


For families who love to entertain and have guests, the magnificent McCook Point plan delivers the consummate in charm and craftsmanship.  The 2008 square feet of living space includes six bedrooms, four baths, laundry room, sunroom, and optional decks front and back. Your home will be where friends and family gather and memories are made. This home, like most of our homes, can be built on the piers shown or a foundation.

The Somerton design features the finest in relaxed living. The family chef will appreciate the butler’s pantry and open concept kitchen, which allows for warm hospitality and conversation with others over the raised bar while preparing drinks and hors d’oeuvres or meals.  Its 2096 square feet includes a large master suite, two additional bedrooms, and two and a half baths.

For those who would like to take full advantage of a magnificent view, the Abington plan provides first floor bedrooms and second-floor living space.  The living space on the second floor includes a great room and a den, as well as a beautiful island kitchen and dining room.  The first floor completes this three bedroom, two and a half bath home.


Whatever you need and desire in a narrow lot home, our experienced, award-winning design and build team can help.
