Nearly every day, new products, techniques and methods are introduced that challenge the ways buildings are constructed and introduce potentially more effective and efficient solutions. Not only can these advancements help buildings perform better from an energy usage perspective, but they can introduce time and cost savings and reduce waste.

Amy and Ben met in the fall of 2011 at a party where they had mutual friends who were trying to set them up. They both were a little reserved about attending, but decided to give it a shot.

“We met and I found Ben to be sarcastic, funny and very cute,” Amy recalls — much like the pitch she had been given about him by her friend.

HOME New Fireplace IMG_0718.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Last summer, my husband Sam and I finally decided to jump in with both feet on the house we had been renting. We bought the house and began a process that could be compared to giving an 85-year-old a facelift.

BRISTOL — Jack Brown has been tinkering with cars for almost as long as he can remember, or in his words, “since I was a pup.”

He grew up in Pennsylvania outside of Philadelphia and in the late 1940s went to boarding school in New Hampshire. Around age 14, Brown started learning about mechanics and taking an active interest in cars. At age 17, he moved back to Philadelphia and enrolled in the Spring Garden Institute where he studied auto mechanics and committed to the trade.
