Summer on MV is a busy place. Lots of traffic, bikes and people milling around. Yesterday we set a duplex employee housing for Edgartown Golf Club. It was a hot day but the set went well.
The duplex is a total of 2,975 square feet. On one side there are 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and on the other side its 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. It is a great addition to the island as housing is very hard to find.
Here are some photos from the set! It will be nice to see it all come together!
Our next modular set is not till September but we have lots of work to do till then.
The modular on Chamber’s Way, Edgartown passed all its inspections and has the certificate of occupancy. The cleaning crew and furniture company will be in over the next few days. Final photos to come soon.
Have a great rest of the week and stay cool!
Yesterday was set day in Oak Bluffs on Puritan Drive. The weather was not very cooperative in the morning with rain but the afternoon cleared and it ended up being a great day.
The Colonial style home has over 2,950 sq. feet. There are 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms. The home will have a site built two bay garage added. Time to get to work!
Memorial Day push us upon us. We have one modular job completed this week as well as a finished basement and bathroom renovation.
In Vineyard Haven the Clough Lane owners now have their certificate of occupancy. The owners have begun to move in their furniture. Completed photos will be added soon to our website once the owners are settled.
Here is some kind words from the owner: “We finished the move-in last night at 6 pm and now we are home! Thank you for making this happen within our time frame. I cannot express how happy we are with the house. It is what we dreamed about and even better.
The process with you has been so valuable. In our first meetings with you and Dave, we learned that we could design anything that we could imagine. Then in the next meetings we refined our hopes. Then it was amazing with all the stages of construction with you and Matt and Rich and John. I have also really enjoyed getting to know Robo this last week, not to mention Woody and all the others at Squash Meadow. You have made and kept a great and loyal team.
I am most impressed with the quality at every point and the commitment of all of Squash Meadow to have an excellent result with every effort.
You have enabled us to make a new home for our family, old friends and new friends.
Thank you so much”
The finished basement off of Vineyard Meadow Farms Road came out nicely:
The modular on Chamber’s Way is coming along. The counter tops have been installed. Siding complete.
The next two modular sites are in progress. We have a set coming up on June 8th on Puritan Drive, Oak Bluffs and one on July 13th in Edgartown.
We hope everyone has a fun, safe holiday weekend!
Attention to detail….sometimes when taking photographs of these homes we don’t realize how much thought, drawings and effort it goes in to creating and constructing one custom piece. From custom shelves and mudrooms to home offices and fireplaces mantels there is a lot of detail that goes into the building of the the item. One of our finish carpenters recently constructed this custom fireplace mantel. Here is the progression of the fireplace surround from start to finish.
It is neat to see the process and changes from start to finish! Cannot wait to see the living room completed with furnishings and TV! Stay tuned for more custom work.
Sunny and in the 50’s today, great day to be working outside in February in New England. As always we have bunch of jobs going on in all different stages.
Starting with Chamber’s Way, Edgartown the foundation has been backfilled, sill plates going in early next week and the modular will arrive on island on Wednesday. The forecast is looking good for set day in the 40’s and sunny. Set pictures to follow!
60 Curtis Lane is in the final building inspection called in. Certificate of occupancy to follow! Owners will be able to move all their furniture in and start enjoying their new home! This home had a number of custom add ons like the custom desks and floating shelves, the mudroom with built-ins and fireplace. Cannot wait to see what it looks like with the owners touches!

The holiday season is upon us and everyone is bustling around holiday shopping, baking and attending small gatherings. We are glad to see the mild weather for this time of year especially with the line of business we are in.

We have a few bathroom renovations in progress as well as finished basements.
The work keeps coming and we keep going!
The feeling of relief is what comes to mind when we reach September. You are able to breathe lighter that you made it through another busy summer on Martha’s Vineyard. It was a record summer for tourists here on the island and now that Labor Day has come and gone and the kids are back in school our little island is becoming “ours” again. Less traffic, less people now time to get some new houses set!
The home we set on Curtis Lane in June is in the final stages. The finish carpenter is installing trim, interior doors, handrails and stairs. Soon the appliances will be installed. The painter has begun the interior of the home. The carpenters are putting up the last shingles on the exterior, finishing the decks, The mason is almost complete with the fireplace in the three season porch.
We have a set for a modular home on Curtis Lane coming up next week 9/16. There is also one more modular #50 Curtis Lane in the beginning of November. Photos of the new modular at 60 Curtis Lane. Curtis Lane was a popular street for modular this year!
We hope everyone has a great, stress-free weekend!
Summer time we hope for sun and beach but this summer the weather hasn’t been spectacular. Let’s hope the sun shines this weekend and for the rest of August!
Despite the gray day, we day we made the rounds to check up on our Edgartown properties.
On Middle Street, the home is nearing the finish line. The trim is being installed, the painter is in. The counter tops have been installed. The bathroom tile has been completed. Finally the shingles have been completed. There was a shortage for a short period of time. The decking is done and outside shower! The appliances will be delivered in the coming weeks, some are backordered due to COVID and shipping delays.
On Curtis Lane we have two active projects and one coming up. One property has the foundation in the ground and is being back filled. The house is due to come September 16th.
Here are some updated progress photos on the modular home on Curtis Lane we set back in June. The flooring has been ordered should be on island soon! The owners picked out a Sawyer Mason floor. Now that we have shingles again the carpenters are busy getting to work shingling the home.
Hope the sun pops out and keep up the good work!
