Home Sweet Home

Our production crew has been hard at work transforming Mitchell Construction’s  office building on 511 Main Street in Medfield, MA. Built in 1965, the building has gone through many transformations over the years.  The most recent change, was a full “face-lift” to the exterior of this 52 year old post-war cape style building.

Choosing to change the exterior to a craftsman style facade the Mitchell Construction crew first had to go to our in-house Architect, Peter Grover. Selecting the building style, colors, windows, doors, trim, gutters, roofing, cupola and front steps needed to be decided upon.  Once decisions were made, everything was ordered and demolition began.   Following our Mitchell Construction Process, things went smoothly outside of mother nature’s cooperation.  Rain and snow slightly hampered our momentum, but if you  drove by during the construction, you would have seen members from our Production Team Rick Laliberte and Josh Kinhart hard at work even on the coldest days.


The crew began by removing and replacing all 17 windows with beautiful and efficient Marvin Integrity windows in evergreen.  Our new, welcoming front door is a Bungalow Series from Simpson. It is amazing, the new windows and doors not only brought warmth to the building architecturally, but physically as well with their insulation and high energy performance.   They stripped the entire building of all it’s clapboard and replaced it with clear-coated western red cedar shingles.  The trim, to match the windows, is also a dark green…we lovingly call it “Mitchell Green”, but in reality it is Sherwin Williams in evergreen.



You will also notice the decorative sill apron in craftsman style around the windows and the woven corner detail on the corners of the building.  True craftsmanship from our skilled, talented and award winning Production Team has truly changed the look of this building.  It not only brought charm and character to the building, but to the center of town.  There is no way your head won’t turn when you drive by 511 Main Street!  The crew is finishing up, adding all the final touches.  Look for before and after photos on our Facebook page.
