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.

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!!

Summer is Flying Bye….

The hot and sticky weather is on its way this weekend. Looking forward to getting to the beach! Here is what Squash Meadow has been up to this week…

We have a new modular coming toward the middle of September site work will begin soon. There is a current structure on the property that will be demolished starting the beginning of August.

Our show room at the office is under transformation. Getting a facelift over the next few weeks. We have samples of flooring, counter tops, windows, roofing, cabinets, lighting fixtures and much more to browse though when making selections for your new modular home.

In Vineyard Haven at the Mayflower Lane project the carpenters are continuing to do the finish carpentry. The painters working on the interior of the home.

We met with two new potential clients this week and will begin their design meetings towards the end of the month.

Summer is flying bye so fast already…get out there and enjoy the weekend!

Not much to report!

We made it through the 4th of July in one piece! Few less people on the island this week, traffic has lightened up. The weekend’s forecast looks like perfect beach days sunny and 80! We hope everyone gets out and enjoys the island 🙂

Our workers have been keeping busy….the fence has been installed at the East Chop Drive home, the owners have moved some furniture in. The owners can now enjoy their completed renovation project!

Up in Vineyard Haven on Mayflower Lane we have the painters in painting some windows and filling holes getting ready to paint the cathedral ceiling in the great room. The gutters are being installed on the front of the house. Kitchen is waiting on the counter tops which are a week or so out. Things are coming along very nicely.

Our next house in Edgartown has been ordered from the Westchester Modular Home factory. Likely to be set on the lot on the outskirts of downtown Edgartown in September. Two others are in the permitting process and will follow suit this coming fall.

Have a great weekend and see you in the next few weeks with the latest news here at Squash Meadow!
