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

Spring seems to be the time of the year that many people suddenly decide that they want to raise chickens or rabbits due to how cute they are in the stores. However, they are living things and they do need special care and anyone considering buying either should know what is needed for them before they decide that they want one or two as a pet. As we were at the local farm supply store yesterday, I seen that they have the chicks and rabbits out for sale. Many people were gathered around these pens inside the store and talking about how cute they were and how they would love to take one home. Chicks and bunnies seem to sell well this time of the year and many people find that these are cute gifts for kids and grand kids for Easter. However, they may be cute but they require special care and they must be fed each day. Some kids do not do well with pets and do not want the daily responsibility to care for them. Consider the following things before you purchase baby chicks and rabbits.
Baby chicks need a lot of special attention and care when they are first brought home. Young chicks must have a feed known as starter feed and the feeders must be kept clean and in a place where they can easily reach the food. Young chicks must also always have a heat source and fresh water. There are special food and water dishes available for sale and should be purchased with the chick. It is best to cover the bottom of their box with litter to make the bottom of it soft and comfortable for them.
Baby chicks are fragile too. When being handled, they must be touched and picked up very easily. It is important to not squeeze them or drop them. Also, they should not be handled often. The chicks are usually scared of people and you do not want to scare them by "chasing" them around the box trying to catch them.
Baby rabbits are the same as baby chicks. They need food and clean water daily. Rabbits can be handled much more often than the chicks, but you still need to be careful as to how they are handled. Rabbits tend to be more aggressive in their behavior than chicks and they can scratch the child as they are attempting to pick them up.
Rabbits need a cage when they are brought home to be put in. Also, make sure that the cage will be in a warm, dry area and that if you intend to keep the rabbit in the house that you have litter for the cage. Rabbits tend to do well inside or outside if care is given to the weather conditions outside. You need to buy a commercial rabbit feed as they will only eat lettuce and other fruits and vegetables as a treat. There are many available but I recommend that you purchase whatever feed the store has been feeding them.
Both of these make cute surprises for kids, but be sure that before you take the animal home that you are prepared for it and that you will be able to meet the essential requirements of care for the animal. As with any pet, research the health needs and what kind of feed and care that they need. This is just as important as knowing the way that they should be handled and how fast they will grow. Animals, especially chicks and rabbits can be fascinating to watch grow and add a lot of fun to a family, but be sure that you are ready to care for them before taking them home and realizing they are not a good fit to your family.
