Post move-in projects… Ongoing at 285 Martin Dr

Martin Acres Remodel – Week 11 brings sub-roof!

The Martin Acres Remodel turns another corner This week the roof trusses were installed and the plywood roof decking went on top of that. We were not without drama of course… As weather dampened spirits and threatened to strike down the guys with bolts of lightning while they toiled between spells of torrential rain.  How awesome …

Martin Acres pop-top : Second Story

Martin Acres Pop-Top with View  – That’s the goal! It was a dripping, snowy, cold and miserable weekend. Tarps did their thing but inevitably, water got into the house.
