Prince & Sons, Inc. is Headed to Bald Head Island

We’ve been keeping this announcement under wraps for some time, but we’re excited to say that we’re headed to Bald Head Island, NC to perform extensive home renovations on two beach houses over the course of the next few months.

If you recall this is the second winter in a row that we’ve been able to take our home remodeling expertise to the coast. Last winter we were in Myrtle Beach, SC and did an extensive home renovation job that involved a full kitchen and bathroom remodel as well as a large number of other updates.

What is Prince & Sons Doing on Bald Head Island?

We will be renovating two beach houses on Bald Head Island over the next 2-3 months. A few of the items that we’ll be focusing on at each of these beach houses include:

  • Extensive sheetrock repairs
  • Interior painting at both residences
  • Plumbing fixture upgrades
  • Installation of granite countertops
  • Adding tile backsplashes in the kitchen
  • Replacement of tile work in multiple bathrooms
  • Upgrading bathroom accessories
  • Replacing damaged window sashes
  • Removing and replacing dated appliances
  • Upgrading cabinet door hardware
  • Building shelving to add additional storage
  • Repairing damaged door units

Not a bad view!

Challenges of Working on Bald Head Island

If you’ve ever been to Bald Head Island you’ll likely remember that vehicles are not permitted on the island. While most people get around the island in golf carts, the local island officials do permit vehicle use for contractors. While we will be able to use our van to pick up and haul materials, we’ll have to be extremely efficient and organized as we will have to take the barge back to the mainland whenever we need to pick up supplies. Another parameter that differs from our routine in Durham is that construction work can only take place during normal business hours 8 to 5 Monday through Friday.

While we’re extremely excited about this opportunity it will indeed be a challenge trying to juggle the logistical issues of dealing with construction work on an island, only accessible by ferry.
