A reminder, tomorrow, Friday, March 14 and again on Saturday, March 15 Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, Efficiency Vermont and VERMOD are hosting open house events in Wilder, giving folks the chance to see a new high performance, energy efficient modular home. These new homes are part of the Manufactured Housing Innovation Project, a pilot project focused on developing new manufactured homes for Vermont homeowners.
