Spring is definitely in the air! Here are some recent pictures of a home we are currently completing in Edgartown. We will be showcasing the home in an open house at the end of April. Wait till you see the interior. A special thanks to Mike Chandler for these great pictures.
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”.

SMC has worked tirelessly over the pass decade to develop homes that dispel the myth that an energy efficient, LEED certified modular home is not cost effective. This home is testament to the idea that a Green modular home can be had on anyone’s budget. This 1400 sq ft home shares all the Green attributes of its bigger brothers, like insulation and a tightly sealed thermal envelope so efficient that its like down parka for your home in the winter, and an igloo cooler in the summer. All while having little (if any) environmental impact on the surrounding area due to its factory built construction (a process which also minimizes and recycles waste) and speedy one-day delivery.
SMC can build you a LEED home on any budget. You’ll contribute to a building culture which enhances and protects ecosystems, improves air and water quality, reduces solid waste, and conserves natural resources. Not to mention you’ll save on operating costs and end up with a beautiful home.
