74 HOWLAND STREET, DORCHESTER, MA

Location: 74 Howland Street, Dorchester, MA
Owner: Cesar DaSilva
Cost: $270,000
Involvement: Designer & General Contractor

This old abandoned nursing home located in Dorchester was redesigned and converted into a two family dwelling. DCCS, Inc. was responsible for the entire design and construction of this new home. The work involved a complete gut of the existing interior of the building, restructuring of the front porch, new addition and deck at the rear, as well as, repairs to the existing siding and roof. The interior was redesigned to accommodate two families.

The project involved construction of new walls, drywalls, ceiling, hardwood floors, tile work, doors, windows, kitchens, bathrooms, plumbing, electrical, HVAC systems, as well as, the installation of new asphalt shingles on the roof. At the rear we constructed a new bedroom addition to first floor with a new deck on top. A new wooden staircase was also built at the rear. This building was completed with the finest craftsmanship, while maintaining its original look.
