This historic home located in Truro is beautifully situated on top of a hill in Truro with views of the ocean. When the home owner approached us, they had a desire to build an in-law apartment.
When the home owner purchased this home, it was in need of exterior renovation needing new siding and a roof. Being a handy person, the home owner took the Do It Yourself approach with the siding and paint on the existing home. When it came time to build the in-law edition, the home owner put the project out to bid, ultimately choosing our crew at MassTech.
As the old garage behind the primary home was in a state of disrepair, MassTech began by demolishing this building to make way for the new in-law addition. Our team coordinated a local company to excavate and pour a foundation for the addition, making a usable basement with potential for finishing.
A covered catwalk and complete new roof
MassTech created a covered, fully finished catwalk to connect the old home to the new addition. We were also hired to completely replace the roof on the old building to match the new addition, working around the historic dormers.
Private access with egress stairs and a deck
MassTech always follows local building regulations, pulling permits and meeting with local building inspectors. As a requirement of Massachusetts building code, the new addition needed an emergency exit for the second floor unit which the home owner turned into an art studio. Our experienced decking team created the egress stairs as well as a small deck, perfect for artist inspiration on beautiful Cape Cod days. In the roof towards the rear of the addition, we also installed two skylights to bring natural light into the art studio. The egress stairs also provide for convenient 24/7 private access without disturbing residents of the original home.
A Raving Review from the Home Owner, Greg
Costi was great to work with and all aspects of the build were beyond expectations. Value, quality, timing, professionalism and response time were outstanding. Start to finish in under 20 days. I would use this company again and I have already recommended them numerous times.
