Busy Bees…

Busy, busy, busy bees here as keep plugging along at the long list of “to do’s” before Memorial Day and things are constantly being checked off the list.

The homes we caretake have had the water turned back on, the outdoor furniture put out and batteries changed in the smoke detectors.

Up in West Tisbury the Trotter’s Lane project is complete on our end. The certificate of occupancy has been issued to the owner. The owner will now paint and do the landscaping themselves to stay on budget. We hope they enjoy their new place to call home on Martha’s Vineyard!

All the small renovation projects are wrapping up this week. The bathroom renovation is complete new vanity, tile work and painting and trim. Another home has had new flooring installed from Stonewood Products-Sawyer Mason line and it is looking great! At my own house the painters giving the living room, dining are and kitchen a fresh coat.

At the major renovation project on East Chop on the harbor the drywall is complete. The tilers are working in the bathrooms. The carpenters are installing trim on the windows. The doors have been delivered, flooring is still acclimating but will be laid soon. The new waterline to the house should be coming soon. The homeowners were on island this week meeting with the carpenters and management to pick out finishes and paint colors. Things will be finishing up in the next month or so and the owners will be able to enjoy their new home for the summer on the island!

Off of Barnes Road in Oak Bluffs the stairs have been started on the inside, the newel posts, handrails and spindles are in progress.

In Vineyard Haven at the Mayflower Lane project the fireplace has been framed out and will be installed on Monday. The insulation has started and will be finished early next week.

We had two design meetings this week and plans are in the works for the new projects.

Things have been very busy, we hope everyone can catch up on rest this weekend! Until next week folks…
