Spring Set Day

Spring has arrived its 50 degrees and partly cloudy today.  Not bad weather to have for a set day!  Today we set a 2,023 square foot custom designed modular Colonial home in Oak Bluffs.  The property is located on Richmond Avenue.  The owners were able to be on site to watch the set happen in action from unloading the trailers to watching the cranes hoist the boxes on to the foundation.  The set crew is working on buttoning up the property after all four boxes were set.

   

The home was designed as a three bedroom, three full bath and two half bath home.  The first floor  is an open kitchen, dining and living area along with a first floor master suite.  The second floor contains two additional bedroom suites.  There is an open loft area that looks down to the living area.  On site the carpenters will build a sunroom on the back of the home. The contractors will also site build the front porch and back deck.  The basement will be partially finished with a family room and half bath.

 

We cannot wait to see the progress over the next few months and see what finishes the owner has picked out.  Target finish date is around July.

 

Winter Update

Hard to believe its the middle of January. Time has flown by and we continue to be busy here at Squash Meadow.

Our 100th home that we set in June has been completed and the owners are in the process of furnishing the home. Here are a few sneak peak photos…more to come in the next few weeks.

Fall on MV

Fall on MV came up quick!  The island has emptied out a bit but still bustling with the fishing derby.
