East 8th Street: Rebuilding Has Begun

After a whole lot of demo, we are finally putting E 8th St back together! Our subcontractors have been busy digging out and prepping the garden level, spraying new shotcrete to sure up the foundation, and reframing the entire property. In this post, we are going to walk through all the steps we took to make sure the house has a solid foundation for years to come.

Most importantly, we are teaming up with Sell Boston to sell these two townhomes! Stay tuned for more info...
