Green Street in Hinesburg Vermont

Hinesburgs Newest Energy Efficient Home 87 Green Street The second home on Green Street, the new smart growth community in the village of Hinesburg Vermont, has arrived. I say arrived because it was delivered via truck from Preferred Building Systems in Claremont New Hampshire. At just under 2000 square feet, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath modular home was built under strict quality control and energy efficiency guidelines in the companys indoor factory and was brought on several tractor trailer trucks. With specialized staff from PBS and a very large crane, the home was fastened together in one day and has taken its permanent location adjacent to 89 Green Street, the first home of this energy conscious community. The finishing work is now underway with R.C. Volk Construction of Hinesburg. Green Street is developed by Bast and Rood Architects of Hinesburg. Rob Bast, the lead designer of 87 Green Street, said he chose Preferred Building Systems because, I can still achieve the quality of construction and energy efficiency we want for Green Street, while simplifying the building process during the winter. As with 89 Green Street, 87 will have both energy efficiency and low maintenance as its focus, using cementitious siding for the exterior and having insulation values for the basement, walls and roof of R-20, R-40 and R-80 respectively. The public will now be able to get a true sense of the vision of this unique community as both 87 and 89 Green Street are soon to be connected with a promenade making village amenities accessible to all.
