Three new home building projects are underway in Eastham that is keeping me and both of my crews busy. Each is at a different stage of development, and in fact, two are in the final stages of plan approval, while the other two are under construction.
The first is an addition to a summer cottage that has been winterized. The addition has been framed, and was recently sealed by a rubber compound new to construction methods. The rubber compound helps secure the framed addition to wind-tight condition, and is an alternative to sprayed insulation. Although an extra step, it is actually a cost-effective construction method that will serve the homeowners well. The photos depict the rubber sealant, as well as the point of connection between the addition and the existing dwelling.
The second project, on Thumpertown Road, is in the plan approval stage. The property’s existing cottage will be torn down and removed, to be replaced by two-story dwelling with three bedrooms. Delivery is expected to be mid-summer of 2015.
The third project is on Arbor Way and is well under construction, as the photographs show. The home is a two-bedroom, with an extended window in one of the upper bedrooms, as well as a large deck. We expect this project to be delivered late spring of 2015.
The fourth project, on Deepwood Drive, is merely a hint of what is to come. If you look closely in the photos, you will see some survey markers in the ground, marking the spot where a free-standing garage is to be added. The building will be adjacent to a year round dwelling, and will have a finished second story. Once the garage is completed, we’ll begin work on an addition out the back of the house through sliding glass doors that will be fully enclosed. We’ll add photos of that project once it begins.
As we move along on each of these projects, we will carve out a new page for each and upload more detailed photographs for them. For the moment, and as you can see, we have some solid and interesting projects lined up for the winter months, and are in consultation for a couple more, all in Eastham. We’re gratified, too, that our work often times comes from referrals of existing customers, as well as word of mouth.
