It's best if you get an exterminator in to see if you have just ants or carpenter ants. Carpenter ants love rotten wood or moist places and can do a great deal of damage. The exterminator will have to look for the Satellite nest to destroy that first. It's true that just because you see a carpenter ant (black and much larger than other ants) can travel quite a ways but doesn't mean you have them in your walls. Go outside the perimeter of your house and if you have a woodpile (move it!) Check for rotten wood (near the ground and under eaves) and rotten areas on your roof and see if you can't repair it. Get some quotes on exterminators and be careful they don't try to charge you too much. Go onto: www.Google.com ASK: Pictures of carpenter ants If those ants don't look like the ones you have then go back on google ASK: How do you get rid of ants in the walls of your house? Good luck!

Why are some of the windows in Vermont houses sideways?

It is not unusual, on old farmhouses, to see windows on an angle. Typically, these occur when someone added an addition onto an old farmhouse. The roofline of the addition is lower than the roofline of the original house. There will now be a doorway between a room in the original house and the addition, often where a window used to be. However, the old room no longer has a window and is very dark. Enterprising Vermonters would reuse the old window, on an angle, parallel to the new roofline. This would accomplish two things: Nothing would be wasted and the room would be lighter! This was before the invention of skylights! It is not unusual, on old farmhouses, to see windows on an angle.

Can my putting a modestly sized addition on my house diminish the value of my neighbor's house assuming it matches the existing house?

Given your categorization of this question, one must assume that you are both members of an association. Associations are run according to governing documents. So long as your addition is added according to the process described in your governing documents, and it is allowed thereby, only your good will toward your neighbor would preclude completing the addition. That is if you, your neighbor or a real estate professional believe that the addition is a detriment to your neighbor's real estate property. It is possible that the addition would simply elevate the value of your property, while your neighbor's property would retain its original value. In
