January Featured House of the Month
The Wesport House would make the perfect home in the #CatskillMountains for a Winter Getaway.
This Open Floor plan is 2360sqft with 3 Large Bedrooms and 2 and half Baths. The Living Room Area can easily be converted into an office or 4th bedroom. The Family Room opens nicely into the Nook area which flows into the kitchen.
The Westport as shown features optional porch, sidelights and transom, window mantles and grills, eave returns on dormers, pilasters and lineals.
The three front dormers with circle top windows and full shed dormer are a standard.
Note: All plans can be customized.

Building Stronger With Modular Construction
The general impression on modular homes used to be that they were created with inferior workmanship, but since the industry has evolved over the past few decades, modular homes have become known increasingly not only for their affordability, but also for their superior construction quality. This is due to a few major factors: access to superior quality building materials, construction in a controlled environment, factory-quality inspections, and the need for each module to be so structurally sound that it can survive the trip over highways.
Controlled Environment
Building indoors offers incredible advantages to modular manufacturers, not least of which is that no matter what the weather is like outside, construction on your home can continue. Bad weather can also damage your building materials, causing parts of your home that should not be exposed to the outdoors to weather prematurely.
The factory environment is also preferable to a build site because it can be kept locked up overnight. Budget overages and delays are frequently due to missing, stolen, or damaged building materials, particularly in more densely populated areas.
Quality Inspection
Since modular homes are constructed in a factory, they are subject to rule concerning factory manufacturing and therefore are thoroughly inspected at every step. The inspector is someone employed by the manufacturer whose whole job it is to make sure that quality standards are being upheld. These inspections are in addition to the third-party inspections done on every residential building, not as a replacement. There are no easements given to modular homes like there are to manufactured or mobile homes; they are subject to the same strict regulations that site-built homes must adhere to.
Structural Integrity
As the final nail in the coffin to the argument that says that modular homes aren’t constructed soundly, consider that every separate module that is used to create your home has to travel over highways and back roads –sometimes for distances of hundreds of miles – to get to their final destination. This means they have to withstand high winds, constant vibration, extreme shifts in weight distribution due to turning and braking, and shaking from bumps in the road. Modular construction is so strong in fact, that FEMA says that modular homes hold up better against extreme weather than site-built homes.

Happy Earth Day! 
We at HVHS strive to make every home we build Energy efficient and follow Green Building Practices. HVHS is a certified Green Builder through NAHB. We use the Advance Framing Techniques-
Advanced house framing, sometimes called optimum value engineering (OVE), refers to framing techniques designed to reduce the amount of lumber used and waste generated in the construction of a wood-framed house. These techniques boost energy efficiency by replacing lumber with insulation material while maintaining the structural integrity of the home. Advanced framing improves the whole-wall R-value by reducing thermal bridging (thermal flow that occurs when materials that are poor insulators displace insulation) through the framing and maximizing the insulated wall area. This approach results in a structurally sound home with lower material and labor costs than a conventionally framed house.
