On Thursday Oct 24th & Friday October 25th, Squash Meadow Construction made company history by setting two homes on Martha’s Vineyard. To top it off, the homes were in two different towns. The homes were delivered to the Island late Wednesday night from New Bedford from Westchester Modular Homes and their factory in Wingdale, NY.
On Thursday the first home was set in Tisbury. The modular boxes came off the barge around 7 am to a state police escort and within twelve hours the house was set, roofed and weather tight to the elements. Early Friday, Siding & Button-Up crews were at the house to start their work. But while they were starting…… another home was being taken off the barge, delivered and set in Oak Bluffs. This set was completed by 2:30pm and the Clint Bishop Set Crew & Baxter Crane were on the ferry off the Island by 3:45.
Both home should be completed and occupied within ten-twelve weeks… maybe sooner. Mike captured the set in Tisbury on time-lapse photography and we hope to have a new video posted soon for all to enjoy. Watching a modular home being delivered and set is a really remarkable experience. Someone said during the first set that, “Squash Meadow Construction is like Santa Claus because we get to deliver such great gifts to people and make them so happy”.
