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

Make Your Summer Last Longer by Creating an Outdoor Living Space

If you’ve ever wished summer would last longer so you could enjoy the outdoors for more than only a few months, creating an outdoor living space is the answer. 

No longer is your outdoor space confined to a 12 x 12 wooden deck or slab of concrete off the kitchen or dining room with a grill and some patio furniture. An outdoor living area can be so much more and is meant to be enjoyed year-round no matter what the season or reason.

Are you an early riser and enjoy having your coffee in the morning sun or do you prefer kicking off your shoes and taking in the sunset after a busy day at work? Maybe your home is surrounded by breathtaking views and you want to take in the scenery from your bedroom on the second floor.

Whether north, south, east, west, or all around, modular construction makes it easy to bring the outside in or move the inside out by adding a rooftop deck, wrap-around porch or a covered space which offers shelter from sun or rain. 

Covered or open-air, these outdoor spaces are the most popular special-function rooms among homeowners today and with proper planning and good design, a little bit of paradise can be found in your own backyard.

Outdoor rooms can be prewired for lighting, ceiling fans, kitchens, TV’s, and more. You can create a cozy intimate haven with cushy chairs around a fire pit, or design a multi-functional entertainment space with a fireplace, cooking area, and dining table for hosting groups of family and friends. Maybe a bright, open space is more your style where you can roll out your yoga mat, work on craft projects, or relax with a good book. Whatever your vision, furnishings are available in a variety of styles and prices that are designed with fabrics and frames to withstand the elements.

Whether you live along the coast, on a secluded tree-lined lot, or in a suburban community, modular construction allows you to create your own personalized oasis. 

By expanding your living space not only will you be able to savor the sights and sounds of the outdoors throughout every season, but you are adding value to your home as well.

If you are thinking of building a new home, the team at Connecticut Valley Homes can help you create a custom design that allows for a flowing indoor-outdoor living space in a home built for the way you live. Designed to complement the architecture and style of your home, the outdoor living space will make your home look and feel more spacious.
