Vermont Custom Builders of Barns & Homes


Traditional Home
Whether you prefer Capes or Colonials, Vermont Country Builders can construct as simple or intricate a structure as you desire. It’s all in the details. Planning roof pitches and overhangs, window size and type, clapboard exposure, trim detail, and overall proportion—each important element contributes to homes we never tire of and that stand the test of time.

This house is a good example of what we call a New/Old House. The historical lines, proportions, roof pitches, continuous architecture and trim detail mask the high end upgrades which make this house energy efficient with every modern convenience. Hi-R foam, blown in cellulose insulation, HVAC heat/AC, air to air heat pump and modern appliances are just a few of the energy efficient features. The windows sport historical sill detail and SDL bars for the effect of single glaze windows but with the U-factor of low-E insulated glass. All in all—the best of both old and new.

Traditional overhangs, exterior trim details and proportions make this home a time-honored cape from the driveway approach while a walk-out basement, dormer, and lots of glass on the rear capture the views and abundant sunshine. Each of the three bedrooms has a private bathroom. Sprayed-in foam insulation, radiant heat, HRV (heat recovery ventilation), passive solar, florescent lighting, and fireplace doors together contributed to meet Vermont's energy code requirements. Nice tile work, custom cabinetry, crown molding, wide pine floors, oil rubbed bronze hardware complete Ian's handsome home.
