Raising a Glass to the Red Nun

If you’ve been to Dennisport recently, you’ve probably seen the dozen or so new business that are breathing new life into a once rundown block on Route 28. Maybe you’ve even popped in to the Red Nun Bar & Grill for a bite to eat or a pint of one of the 20 beers they have on tap. If you have, you might understand why Coastline felt so honored to help renovate the Red Nun’s new space in advance of their opening.

The Red Nun’s new exterior matches the area’s Cape Cod charm

This past spring, our skilled electricians and carpenters put all hands on deck to help get Red Nun owner Mike Giorgio get the space ready for its grand opening – a June 18 block party celebrating the Dennisport Revilization project. We completed new electrical wiring and interior framing, crafted custom cabinetry for behind the bar, installed new windows and trim and turned a formerly shabby facade into a Cape-Cod-style exterior befitting the area’s newfound charm.

While we loved being a part of rehabbing the space, we have to say the most rewarding part of this job happened a few days after construction was complete, when we grabbed a burger and a pint and watched as hundreds of area residents came out to see their neighborhood’s new watering hole for the first time.

We hope the next time you’re in town, you’ll stop by to checkout our work and support a new local business. Cheers to the Red Nun!

Hiring the Right Construction Company that Knows Cape Cod Building Trends

Written by:- admin

www.coastlinema.com

If you have stayed anywhere near Cape Cod area, Massachusetts, you are aware of the beautiful structures that encircle the area. The scenic lighthouses and the clean beaches are something to marvel at. Visitors are always in awe of the scenic beauty and the existing beautiful residential structures. Though Cape Cod has scope for housing expansion, what the current Cape Cod building trends point towards is remodeling.

That’s why, although the Cape does have scope for housing expansion, many homeowners are choosing to remodel existing structures rather than build new. What this trend aims to do is preserve these older structures and maintain their integrity, while also creating something modern and appealing.

At Coastline Construction, we specialize in remodeling and restoring properties to create beautiful spaces for our clients, while also preserving our unique Cape Cod character. We understand that remodeling a home is a major financial and emotional undertaking. That’s why we always urge homeowners to thoroughly research any potential builder or service provider before hiring them. Below are a few tips for choosing the right contractor for your project..

Licensed service provider

When you hand over your ancestral property to a construction company, you are handing over a piece of your history to them. Ensuring that you are dealing with licensed construction companies will give you a peace of mind that your property is in the right hands. Licensed providers understand the law and will make sure that all the legalities are taken care of before the remodeling begins.

Insured contractors

Insurance on the site of constructions ensures that any damage caused due to factors beyond control are taken care of. You can peacefully engage in remodeling your home with complete assurance from the contractor.

Client testimonials and references

Any construction provider can copy and paste testimonials that speak volumes about their work. But, what you as a home owner should look for is someone who can provide references that can show you the work done by the contractor in person. This will help you in deciding if the selected contractor is worth your time.

It’s important to select accredited contractors with credibility. Contractors who are associated with companies such as the Better Business Bureau, Contractor Association memberships and subscriptions not only means that customers can have greater peace of mind, but accredited contractors are expected to produce work to a good standard. In most cases, customers are also covered if anything goes wrong.

At Coastline, we offer all of the above — and more. Our core values are excellence in craftsmanship and customer service. Starting from our first conversation, we work hand-in-hand with each of with our clients through each remodeling phase to ensure that the end results exceed expectations. .

We hope you’ll consider Coastline for your next remodeling project. Please feel free to contact me directly at joe@coastlinema.com to learn how we can help you make you vision for your home a reality.

Steps in Creating a New Cape Cod Luxury Home

Written by:- admin

www.coastlinema.com

If you live in the Cape Cod area and are interested in building a luxury custom home, Coastline Construction can help. With over 36 years of combined experience, our staff knows what it takes to bring your dream home to life. No matter what your budget, or the size of your project, we can successfully get the job done and guarantee you will be happy you chose Coastline Construction.

Over the years we have worked on hundreds of different jobs. During this time, we have learned a lot about what it takes to not only get this type of project off the ground, but also what it takes to ensure the project is a complete success.

Below you will find 7 very important steps we have put together as you proceed on this new and very exciting journey. They are in chronological order and they will ensure you have a smooth transition no matter which route you choose to take.

Step #1 – Set Clear Goals

At Coastline Construction our number one goal is to deliver better than expected results on every job we complete. In order to do that, we need to have a clear understanding of exactly what it is you are trying to accomplish. That’s why it is so important you take the time to set clear goals.

To make setting goals a little easier, we have put together a list of 6 questions you should answer. Before you can create a new home for yourself, you must first set clear goals. When answering these questions try to be as practical as you can without letting your emotions play a part in how you answer them.

Question #1 – What is your ultimate goal? Are you looking to remodel or build from scratch?

Question #2 – If you are having a home built from scratch, where do you want it to be built?

Question #3 – How much can you afford to spend on a project of this magnitude?

Question #4 – Is right now the best time for you to do this?

Question #5 – Do you have a plan and does that plan make good financial sense?

Question #6 – What is your plan B?

Step #2 – Decide How Much You Can Truly Afford

Building a new home, especially a luxury custom home, is a big investment. This is not something you want to jump into without having a clear cut budget. You need to sit down and go over all of your finances to figure out how much you can truly afford.

Look at everything from the cost of land, to taxes, to the furniture you plan on decorating in the home. You also need to think about a contingency plan. With this type of project you can expect a few mishaps. While they may be minor in nature, if you didn’t plan for them, they can send you well over your budget.

Use a program such as Excel or Google sheets to create your budget. This way you can easily update it as things change.

Step #3 – Decide Where You Want To Live

Cape Cod is beautiful and offers amazing space to build a new home. The key is to figure out exactly where you want to live. Do you want to be closer to the beach or would you prefer to be tucked away in a private setting? When looking for a location, your budget will be the biggest factor.

You have to find a location that you can afford. That’s why it is so important you don’t skip over step 2. There is nothing worse than finding a location you love only to later find out you can’t afford it. In some cases it may be wise to opt for a fixer upper instead of going for a new build. Doing so can save you thousands of dollars and still allow you to get your dream home.

Step #4 – Make Sure You Have the Right Team in Place

At Coastline Construction we understand the importance of having a strong team behind you. The team of people you choose to work with will determine the overall success, or failure, of your project. You need a strong team that knows exactly what they are doing.

Our team takes personal interest in every project we take on. We will sit down with you and listen carefully to make sure we understand what you want. We set out to make sure every detail gets the attention it deserves. When you work with our team, you will never be left in the dark. We will keep you updated with phone calls, emails and most importantly, progress reports. Our top two priorities are always quality craftsmanship and excellent customer service. When you work with us you will be working with the best team in Cape Cod.

Step #5 – Plan out The Project in Detail

When taking on this type of project, planning every detail is extremely important. Always play the “what if” game and refuse to settle until all possibilities have been explored. Our project manager will work with you on every detail ensuring you get exactly what you want. Don’t be afraid to throw out big ideas. We love to hear them. After all, this is YOUR project.

No matter how well you plan, please understand unexpected things can happen. You must be willing to accept the inevitable. The most important thing is how your team reacts to these unforeseen situations. Our experienced team will respond swiftly and make sure your project remains on track and is a complete success. Our track record proves it.

Step #6 – Don’t Change Your Mind

Once construction has started, it is recommended you don’t change your mind. If you change your mind in the midst of construction, doing so will cost you more money and more time. Leading up to construction, we will work with you every step of the way. Before we get started, we want to make sure you are 100 percent on board and comfortable with the plans that have been laid out and the decisions you have made. If you aren’t pleased, tell us. We will work with you to get everything in place before construction begins.

Step #7 – Time to Enjoy Your New Home

Chances are you have spent a great deal of time and money creating your new dream home. Now it’s time to sit back, relax, and actually enjoy it. Revel in the fact you were able to accomplish something really amazing. Not a lot of people are able to build a new luxury home. You should be proud of yourself.

In the end you will realize your new home is so much more than 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and a big kitchen. It’s the place you and your family will be able to call home for a long time to come and enjoy and cherish many, many memories.

Choose High Quality Products for Your Home Remodeling Cape Cod

Written by:- admin

www.coastlinema.com

As you will probably come to realize, it is true in most cases that you get what you pay for. However, this does not mean that the most suitable product is the most expensive. Whether it is in electronics, automobiles, or homes, good quality comes at a price. The benefits of quality, however may last you a lifetime especially when it is related to home ownership.

A lot of people are undecided when it comes to the products or services to enlist when remodeling is required. We at Coastline Construction believe that the best builders have the best team. We believe in using the best products while giving you the best custom homes, electrical services, and home remodeling services in Cape Cod, MA.

We may be homebuilders, but we are homeowners as well. This lets us understand the importance of saving your hard-earned money in any way possible. However, we truly do not believe in cutting corners when it comes to home remodeling Cape Cod. We have come to realize that many people make the wrong choices when it comes to remodeling and they come to regret their decisions later, as the cost of repairing damages sometimes far exceed the remodeling costs.

We at Coastline construction advice our clients to stick to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) when it comes to home remodeling Cape Cod. If you are not sure where to buy the best products then you can always give us a call and we will help you out. Products from OEMs are usually more expensive than those that you will find at major department stores such as Home Depot or Lowes. This is because; the manufacturer enters into a contract with the stores to supply lesser quality products that look similar to the original products. When this is the case, you will find that these products will tend to depreciate in value and quality within a short period of time. The main reason why a manufacturer may opt to do this, is target a different market segment that would probably not buy their products. In this way, they get to maintain their niche clients, while at the same time targeting another market segment for additional profits.

Below is a room-by-room analysis of rooms that you should never compromise on the quality or price.

Cape Cod Kitchen Remodeling – Your kitchen is the heart of the house. Many memories are created here and the love of cooking will always be displayed here as we all prepare that scrumptious meal for your loved ones. As thus, the kitchen requires absolute care when it comes to remodeling. Due to its special significance, we urge all our clients to not cut corners when it comes to kitchen remodeling and true to our words, our clients can attest to this.

Cape Cod Bathroom Remodeling – The master bathroom should not be taken lightly when it comes to remodeling. This room plays a very important role in every homeowner’s life. With a well-remodeled bathroom, you may save hundreds if not thousands that you would have spent in some of the high-end spas in Cape Cod. With our master technicians, we will help you to make your bathroom a dream place so you can relax in the tranquility of a well-designed bathroom after a hard day’s work.

Cape Cod Bedroom Remodeling – You need to look at your master bedroom as being much more than a place to sleep. In fact, you should consider it your secret sanctuary. The master bedroom is much more than just a place to sleep, it’s your domain. Your bedroom can tell much about you than the table room or the kitchen, as this is the place you go to reflect on the day and make plans for tomorrow. Create a lively master bedroom with large windows, a sitting area, and amazing accessories and you will surely enjoy the results.

  • Coastline was great to work with. They completed the project on time and kept us up to date throughout. We had our bathroom gutted and redone and we LOVE it! I would highly recommend Coastline to friends and family and look forward to working with them in the future.

    Elizabeth B., of Sandwich Ma
  • It was my lucky day when I found Coastline Construction online. Joe Young, an owner, would not allow the job to progress unless all the work was “perfect.” Jack gave us a daily schedule of the jobs to be worked on and answered all of our questions very quickly.

    The whole job was a pleasure; start to finish, as we were involved at all times. We are so pleased with the finished product and would recommend Coastline Construction to anyone with a project, large or small.
