JOHN HOURIHAN  Owner of @VintageBuilders ▪️Documenting the WHY&HOW on what I❤️ to do ▪️@Finehomebuilding Ambassador ▪️Co-Host @The.ModernCraftsman Podcast

We are in the pre-con stage of this new build. Our newest spec HOME in Wellesley, MA. This is the side elevation created by Matt Sargent from @islandarchitects!!!!

Yes, it’s classic. Yes, it’s not a normal spec. We are inspired through classic designs that have stood the rest of time. Our goal is to give you a classic HOME w/o the headaches.
When everyone else is going w/ the cheapest design and pulling inspiration from other spec builds, we are pulling from historic architecture. •

2-years ago we packed this room w/ 300+ contractors, builders and designers!!!! Not going to lie I was crazy nervous... But, it was an amazing experience & can’t wait to do it again!!! We are hoping 2-yrs later it’s even better. So much has changed and this community has only grown!!!! Like Tyler from @trghomeconcepts mentioned in his posts; you might need to hear what we have to say, but you need to attend to meet other like minded individuals!!!!! What can be learned in conversations is invaluable!!!!! Knowing you’re not alone, will give you confidence that will push you and your dreams forward!!!!

Hope to see you there!!!!!

Some days it’s all meetings, other days it’s all management and on the occasional day it involves swinging a hammer....... but, the best days it’s a mash-up of all three!!!!

I was taught to use lead for all door pans and 20+ yrs later we are still using this old-school method that’s bullet proof.
Yes there are cheaper options..... & tons of other technics & materials. But, this product and method is my go-to!!!!
Here’s a quick mock-up I did for @vintagebuilders IG story.
Yes, normally we would run the lead up 6” on the jack stud. But, besides that, this is a pretty good depiction of the pan. •

@namesbenny will tell you, the hardest part of this #backbayreno is something that will never be seen or celebrated!!!! The chimney’s that ran from the basement through the roof....... But, when we (@namesbenny) are done all you’ll see us the chimney at the roof level.......

We always talk about how to better ourselves in this industry. But, we rarely shine the spotlight on ourselves and our HEALTH. 90% of the time we don’t focus on HEALTH until we are suffering from an illness......
Our bodies are affected by STRESS in different ways and how we cope can affect our health and our family.
Work-life balance is a very slippery slope. But, work will always be there. Sometime we need to slow down, shift gears and move to the right lane before we find ourselves in the breakdown lane. •
This isn’t a warning, but instead be aware. Your HEALTH can stop you in your tracks. Be self-aware, don’t ignore your body and visit a doctor if you think something is up. •

A while ago I posted this inspirational image..... Guess what????!!

Yup, this will be the concept behind our new spec build!!!! Again, this is why we will stay in the spec market and not shift our model 100% to custom homes and Reno’s.
We get to shape a neighborhood and real estate market w/ straight creativity, craftsmanship and passion!!! Hope you’re ready for our take on a classic design!!!

What should we name this build?!? •

Yup, this is exactly how it was dreamt up!!!!
This is a barbershop, a boston based barbershop. These barbers cut the hair of Bostonians and the athletes we cheer for week nights and on the weekends. These athletes make up the back wall of the shop!!! Such a cool spot!!! @namesbenny popped in this week to get a cut along w/ local family’s my kids go to school w/ and they all have the same comments. “Place looks amazing!!!” •
If your in the area of Natick, MA. stop in, checkout the space and get cleaned up!!!! You won’t be disappointed w/ @vintagebuilders craftsmanship or the passion @josuethebarber and his crew pour into their craft!!!!

This roof frame has inspired so many little spots in our builds. This is the existing ceiling of my converted screen porch project into a study. This ceiling wasn’t exported to start w/. But, I’ll plywood the ceiling and apply 2xfir to match this pattern. Goal is the create faux rafters & I’ll apply shiplap in-between to create the look of old roof sheathing.
This space isn’t huge maybe 8’x12’ so keeping the ceiling vaulted will be key. •

Lots of action on job sites and at home.
@boraltruexterior discontinued clapboard fastened w/ SS ring nails. No, we didn’t fill the nail holes flush..... we weren’t looking for perfection, but instead character and authenticity.
I’ve used a ton of products over my years in the biz. I paid full price for this material and I loved it while it lasted..... I thought it was the best alternative to wood w/ the most authentic look..... total bummer it’s dead....
Crushing on the colors the Mrs picked w/ galv downspouts!!!!!
FYI, this color was the primer coat, not finish. •
