We received the green light to start a large scale renovation of a house in serious need of  upgrades in Somerville last week.

Our scope:
First Floor: To create an open floor plan by removing all the partition walls; kitchen, ½ bath, flooring and removing the lowered ceilings

Second floor: new master suite, full bath, flooring

Attic: upgrade finishes and add 3 Velux skylights

Basement: dig out half the existing basement slab to create a level surface and pour a new slab; install closed cell foam on the blockers (area where floor joists meets the foundation wall).

General: Upgrade electrical, plumbing, mechanicals, roof, windows, insulation Rough-in for Solar PV.

We will wrap up demo this week. The electrical walk-through is scheduled for next week, followed soon after by rough-ins for the mechanicals.
