The un-official start to summer has begun on the island. Memorial Day weekend was a different feel this year than years past. The island seemed busier with homeowners here enjoying their home but the vacation rentals and hotels are still not permitted due to COVID 19. This is giving homeowners the opportunity to spruce up their properties and use the homes themselves which does not happen as frequently. In Phase 2 we will hear if the governor will allow vacation rentals and hotels and restaurants when they can re-open and what restrictions they will have. Construction work continues as we are playing catch up and trying to complete a few properties to get the new owners in!
Up in West Tisbury at the Bramble Path job the subs are putting the final touches on the home and soon final inspections will be called in! The owner will be able to start landscaping and move their furniture in!
In Oak Bluffs on Hampson Ave. we will be calling in the final inspections and working on obtaining the certificate of occupancy in the next week. The owners will be able to enjoy putting their personal touches on their home this summer!
Exterior siding and decking continue at the West Chop property.
Lastly we have used Stonewood Products outdoor shower kits on a few of our current projects. The product came out nice! They have all different sizes and custom details you can add to you outside shower, a staple item for a Vineyard home.
Have a safe week and enjoy this sunny, warm weather!
We are taking advantage of beautiful springtime weather and 5-man work crews to keep our momentum moving forward. Siding and decks being completed while carpenters, painters, plumbers, and tilers work on finished up our homes.
(Please note that all crew & subs on projects strictly adhering to best management practices of Social Distancing and wearing PPE when needed for everyone’s safety. Some pics show individuals working alone and were taken 8′-10′ back)
At our modular home on West Chop, in Vineyard Haven the crew continues to work on siding the exterior. What a great view to look at while working! (Vineyard Haven Harbor watch the boats go by.)
At our renovation project in Vineyard Haven the owners are adding a bedroom, bathroom in the old loft and adding a screened in porch. Things are finishing up at this project.
In Oak Bluffs on Spruce Ave. the tile contractors have been working hard on the showers and the back splash.
At our Hampson Avenue modular home the tile contractors were in putting in the finishing touches. The plumber was installing fixtures and the glass has been installed in the bathroom showers.
Keep up the good work, enjoy this nice weather and stay healthy! Until next week… 🙂
We are seeing progress on our jobs even with two person crews. Starting next week the towns on island passed that five workers can be on a job site which will make things go a little faster. It was a challenging but we have made progress and held to the guidelines. Longer days, weekends and swapping crews through scheduling have definitely helped. We hope everyone continues to being safe and practicing social distancing, wearing masks and washing hands.
In Oak Bluffs on Spruce Ave. the tile has been installed in the bathrooms, the details on the decks are coming together.
Up in West Tisbury things are coming along…the decking and outside shower have been completed. Bathrooms have been tiled and hardware will be going up soon.
If you are thinking about doing a modular now could be the time to start planning while you are working from home and noticing all the changes that need to be made.
Stay tuned to next weeks progress with more workers on our various job sites!
