Hawthorn Investments Custom Home – 56 Broad Meadow Rd – Needham

Earlier in 2010, Hawthorn Investments sourced a 17,000+ sf lot at 56 Broad Meadow Road in Needham.  The property is located in the Broad Meadow School district, a few houses away from the school.  There was a raised ranch located at the property that was torn down.The project was sold to a homeowner who closed on the land in April 2010 and construction began in June on a custom designed Hawthorn Investments home.

Shortly after construction began on the home it became apparent that the site contained more than an insignificant level of ledge beneath the surface.

A 10,000 pound hammer was required to pound through the bedrock in order to excavate for the foundation.  Once the site was cleared, the footings were poured followed by the forms for the foundation walls and the project got back on track.

As of the end of August, the house has been framed, the roof is on, windows and doors are in and the siding has been installed.  The crews are working inside on the rough mechanicals and the customer is diligently picking out cabinets, appliances, tile and other finishes.

The project’s page contains a photo gallery of the construction process and will be updated as the finishing touches go into the home.
