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.

Specializing in offsite modular construction since the beginning, Catherine was intrigued by the idea of building a home inside a factory.

Consider Modular

Consider Modular Home construction, the popular new trend in home building.


A modular home is simply one that is built in a factory setting to the same building codes as a site-built home. The same traditional wood frame building methods are used, but the indoor location allows for the use of state-of-the-art equipment and climate-controlled working conditions. The efficient and precise factory construction methods elevate the home building process to a higher standard.  Modular construction is also a faster way to build, allowing the owners to move in and enjoy their new home sooner. 
 
Those looking to build often wonder if a modular home will look boxy or unappealing.  And if the interior finishes will meet their expectations. Dick Wildermuth, president of Connecticut Valley Homes in East Lyme, says, “Come look for yourself; our homes are beautiful inside and out. Standard features include solid surface countertops, kitchen tile backsplashes, cabinets with dovetail drawer construction, and much more.  We design and build beach homes, colonials, single story ranches, homes on piers and everything in between.  Our customers tell us that they saved money or were able to build a better home with more features than expected.”

To decide if modular construction is a good choice for your family home, Wildermuth suggests doing your homework. A good place to start is our website, www.ctvalleyhomes.com, which is filled with floor plans, photos, and valuable information about designing and building a new home. 


Connecticut Valley Homes has model homes in East Lyme, plus design centers in Fairfield and Westerly, RI.  Call 860-739-6913 for new home building information.  Connecticut Valley Homes has built over 1550 modular homes and has an A+ BBB rating.
