Building & Renovating on Martha’s Vineyard

The norm on Martha’s Vineyard is that the vast majority of owners build and renovate from afar. We've worked with many buyers who fit into this category and have a wealth of local knowledge and real estate insight to help you in your experience.

Projects vary in scope from new builds to significant renovations and expansions, to simple cosmetic repairs. On-Island companies (and there are many) may specialize in or sub-contract work. They are comprehensive "hands on" in the building process, helping owners navigate legal permitting, architectural planning, engineering, land clearing, framing, finish work and landscape design.
