Sisler Builders is known for building stunning and unique custom homes that reflect the owners’ dreams and personalities. But they also do equally gorgeous renovations, rebuilds, and makeovers. One reason is to keep their employees busy between bigger jobs. Another is because they like bringing green building projects to their community. Also, it’s in Steve Sisler’s blood. His mother was involved in historic preservation. The enjoyment he experienced while working for her was the seed that grew into the construction company he owns today.
One property they are in the midst of is rebuilding Stowe Street apartments in Waterbury. It’s a 200-year-old apartment building in dire need of a total makeover. They demolished it and are completely rebuilding it on the existing footprint. The new building will have five apartments. Three are designated for seniors on the bottom floor and will have handicap access, and two on the second floor will accommodate local families. Sisler Builders is making the building really green, with optimum insulation, solar panels, and super-efficient heat pumps.
Construction began in April and will be completed by mid-winter.
We will do another blog in the future showing the progress of rebuilding Stowe Street apartments.
