About The Wee 'Ouse

The Wee 'Ouse is was finished prior to 1871.  It is located in South Hamilton, Massachusetts in a community called Asbury Grove.  'The Grove' as it is commonly called was originally a Methodist Camp Meeting space.  The Wee 'Ouse was build by Robert Sanderson and his family.  
Katherine is working on the house with her daughter, Zetta, as well as friends and family.  This website will chronical the process of the revival and explain how many of the details were created.

Meet The Team

The bulk of the project will be completed by me and my mini.  We are excited that The Grove is dog friendly so when it is safe Lucy & Maia will be able to spend time with us there.  Of course friends and family will be assisting us throughout the project too!

I was young once, with a dream.

In the spring of 2004 I began the biggest personal project of my life.  
I purchased a delaptiated row house in Chelsea, Massachusetts and set to making it my home.  With that project I met my great friend Dave who was in the construction industry.  We began working on more and more projects together and by the winter of 2007 Eight Wands Construction Corporation was a real business and my only job.

The team chaged a little over the years, but one things that didn't was that the people that worked for me where great friends and continue to be to this day.

Types of Projects

There is a trip down memory lane below. 
It outlines the range of skills I honed over the years running Eight Wands.

  • Tile & Hard Wood Flooring
  • Wall Hanging, Prep & Painting
  • Window & Door Installation
  • Leveling & Correcting Support Structures
  • Having Fun While We Worked
