January on the Rock

We hit mid January on the rock and have had pretty decent weather, no major snow storms yet this winter. Work has been steady and will continue that way throughout the winter.

We have a modular set coming up a week from today up in West Tisbury on Bramble Path. The foundation is in place and ready for the boxes to arrive. More photos to come next week during the set!

In Edgartown on Curtis Lane the painters are in painting and the finish carpenter is in building some cabinets and stairs. It is coming together nicely and will be completed in the next few weeks. Final photos to follow!

In Oak Bluffs we have two modulars that are in the works. The job on Hampson Ave. the exterior is 90% complete. Interior work will begin shortly. The subcontractors have done their roughs for the electrical and plumbing. The insulators will be going in, in the next few days!

The job on Spruce Lane is waiting for the shingles to be delivered which is in the next day or so and the workers will begin to side the house.

Our next modular set scheduled for the end of February is located in Vineyard Haven on West Chop. The home has had asbestos removed and is currently waiting to be demolished.

That’s it for now! Keep on keeping on….

BOOO!!!!

Happy Halloween!!!! It never seems to slow down around here…which is a good thing!

Here’s what we have been up to recently….

In Edgartown we have the Curtis Lane project in the works, the outside is almost completed with siding, trim and decking. The outdoor fireplace on the screened in porch is in progress and is looking great. The plumbing has been roughed and all set. The electricians are in progress. The dry wallers will be heading in in shortly to close up the gaps on the inside. The weather for the end of this week does not look very promising for us! More wind and rain headed our way.

Moving to Oak Bluffs…..We had a set in Oak Bluffs on Tuesday on Hampson Avenue. Here are some progress photos throughout the day.

The modular home from Westchester Modular has been set on the foundation and is weather tight, just in time! The new owner was here to watch the set and is very excited to see the outcome in the months to come. Once the rain/wind storm passes the crew will get over to start shingling and putting trim up on the outside. Progress photos will come in the next few weeks. Everyone was happy to be setting the home in dry weather yesterday.

At the next upcoming project in Oak Bluffs on Spruce Avenue the footing forms are in and the cement will be poured in the next few days. The modular boxes will be due to arrive early December.

Have a safe Halloween! Stay dry and we will see you next week with more on whats been happening around Squash Meadow job sites!

Windy…windy….

We had some bad weather last week with the boats not running for two days straight. Today is also very windy, knocked some power out across the island, tree limbs are down, some school delays and cancellations. The boats are also not running at the moment once again. Be careful out there! Despite the bad weather we are pushing through with our current projects…here is an update!

In Oak Bluffs on Spruce Ave. the home has been demolished. Next up will be site work for the foundation for the new modular home that is due to be set on site at the beginning of December.

The job on Hampson Avenue is also coming along. The foundation has been tarred and the next week or so the steel plates will be going in for the modular home due to arrive on island October 29th.

Hampson Avenue, Oak Bluffs

In Edgartown the Curtis Lane home is coming along. The crew is working hard siding the home. The front deck and back screened in porch with outdoor fire place are in progress. The subcontractors have begun their rough work for HVAC, plumbing and electrical.

Fall on Martha’s Vineyard

Labor Day has come and gone…the fishing derby has started…the weather has been spectacular! Everyone is enjoying fall on the island 🙂

Squash Meadow has been very, very with new projects and finishing old projects. We will be steady all winter long which is a good thing!

Here is what we have been up to the last few weeks….starting in Vineyard Haven the Mayflower Lane project has been completed! The owners have started moving in their furniture. The landscaping is still underway but the interior has been painted and cleaned. Here are a few final interior shots.

Moving along to Oak Bluffs we have two larger projects in the works. One on Spruce Lane which is recently had the asbestos removed. The home utility services will be shut off this upcoming week. The property will be demoed the first week in October. The new foundation will be poured and modular home to be set in early December.

We have another modular project in the works as well. The lot is on Hampson Avenue in Oak Bluffs. The lot has been cleared and the foundation has been poured. The boxes from Westchester Modular will arrive at the end of October, stay tuned.

Foundation for Hampson Avenue has been poured

In Edgartown we had a set yesterday on a small lot, walking distance to town. Curtis Lane is a tight road and the set crew did a fantastic job working with the limited space they had. The four boxes have all been set and our crew is now on site starting button up the exterior! Here are some photos from yesterday! The owners will be able to be settled in before next summer and enjoy their new home 🙂 We will keep you updated on the progress of the job.

We have a few smaller projects happening as well. In Edgartown we are in the process of finishing a basement and adding a bathroom down there. In downtown Edgartown our crew is installing new windows and re-siding a property. We have also been steady with new client meetings and design work. Even though all our workers are extremely busy some how they manage to set aside a few hours to fish for the derby! Good luck everyone!!
