Illumination Night, Fair week, Fire works OH MY!

It is one of the busiest weeks on the island this week. We had 150th Grand Illumination night last night in Oak Bluffs in the MV Camp Ground Association. Today the annual Ag Fair kicks off in West Tisbury and tomorrow night the Oak Bluffs annual fireworks . Tons of fun happening around here.

We have been busy at work too! The lot has been cleared in Edgartown on Curtis Lane. The excavation has begun. The forums for the footings are going in and in the next week or so the foundation will be poured. The modular boxes are due to arrive on the island at the end of September. Here are some progress shots!

Up in Vineyard Haven the Mayflower Lane project is nearing completion. This home had a lot of onsite detail added after the modular boxes were set including two large decks, stone fireplace, vaulted ceiling great room and much more.

The final inspections are starting to be called in. The plumber is complete. The electrician is working on finishing up. Painting is coming to an end as well as the finished carpentry.

It has been a very busy summer for us and fall looks like it will be the same! Stay tuned to see what’s happening next on island 🙂

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!
